For all the hoopla this is more symbolic than a change in strategy. Apple isn't returning some of their $100 B to investors, they're merely diverting a fraction of the firehose of new incoming cash to them. Maybe Apple ends 2012 with $130 B in cash instead of $150B. It's still way beyond what they could ever invest productively.

When was the last time Apple did anything for cash that wasn't comfortably funded by the current quarter's cash flow?

Agreed. That's why I see the action as atypical for the company, and borderline worrisome. The company's success has as much been a product of what it chose NOT to focus on as what it did. Why chase investors now, especially knowing that absence of such mechanics isn't hurting the company's stock?
