TheStreet's Jim Cramer: Apple's Competitors "No Longer Relevant"

by , 2:10 PM EDT, April 23rd, 2008

Jim Cramer, an investment analyst, was interviewed recently about Apple.

Mr. Cramer, a respected and talented observer of Wall Street, had his eyes opened when he started looking at the culture surrounding his teenagers and how they perceived non-Apple products as totally uncool.

He asserted that there's actually a lot of resistance by people who analyze stocks to what's really going on with Apple in that they're not deeply engaged.

His conclusion, in a fascinating video interview, was that Apple has remarkable pull with the youth and the acceleration of Apple has just begun.
