Who is more to blame: the keepers of the Dow Jones industrial average, who refuse to add Apple, the world’s most valuable company, to the index because its stock price is too high? Or Apple, creation of late stubbornista Steve Jobs, for refusing to split its successful stock to conform to the Dow’s peculiarities?

Hopefully, it soon won’t matter. And I won’t have to expend another man-hour complaining about it.
