An anonymous reader writes "99mac.se publishes an internal memo from Steve Jobs to Apple employees today.
According to the Memo, Jobs states that "Today is a historic day of sorts for our company." Apple used $300 million in cash to pay off the rest of their debt, and is now a debt-free company. A big turnaround from over $1 billion in debt in mid-1997.
Also noted in the memo is that Apple has $4.8 billion in the bank at this time."
(Since this is not coming straight from Apple, confirmation -- or debunking -- would be helpful.)
