  1. more good news for Apple. Lately, it’s been nothing but good news. This is the year that Apple begins to turn the corner in the minds of the masses. It may be the year that the bizarre amount of bad press Apple regularly recieves starts to look old and unwarrented and not *news*. I think that by 2006 Apple will have 6% marketshare, but thats me being optimistic. No matter how you slice it, though, Apple’s stock has been looking real good lately – imagine if they release a computer thats a big hit?

    Been sayin’ that every year since 1984. Never happens. Think, “iPod” vs. “ONE BILLION WINDOWS USERS BY 2010”

  3. HaHa–those lucky SOBs!!! If I were a Duke upper class man, I’d organize the other classes to DEMAND our own! Obviously GREAT for Apple if this catches on…

  4. iPod might be a nice device, but MACs are forever doomed to 2nd rate sales. Duke still doesn’t have my vote. They’d need to give away free cars to convince me to attend.
