Pfff, if we count losses that way, in 2000 I was on internship in Briarcliff Manor, 40km north of New York. My roommate told me he bought lots of Aplle shares as he saw the new (black and white) Ipod gain popularity.

I lost millions by not following his advice.
somewhat different from not doing something. if you'd shorted apple and lost a lot of money, then i'd agree it would be equivalent. i'm talking about losses that arise from actions, not inaction.
