Will AAPL Be the Next to Declare a Div?

Today, for The Street, I wrote an article pointing out the list of companies I think could be next in line for a special dividend.  On that list was ORCL, who just announced after the bell that theirs could be a special dividend.  The companies I looked for were super stable, high market cap, low PE, and loaded with cash.  Naturally, at the top of my list: AAPL

Take a look at how much cash per share the company is currently holding.  It is an incredible amount of money that the company has on hand, and it represents a big portion of the stock's value.  I think, as a company that is printing money right now, it is borderline irresponsible for the firm not to have some sort of special dividend.
