  1. Can we say OLD NEWS!

    If cnet had read Apple ‘s press release for the 4G iPod, they would have come across:

    “HP has chosen iPod and iTunes as the best products to integrate in to our digital entertainment strategy,� said Carly Fiorina, chairman and chief executive officer at HP. �We decided to wait for this amazing new fourth generation iPod, as it will offer our customers an even better experience. HP�s version of the new iPod will be available in September.�

    Read the press release for yourself: http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2004/jul/19ipod.html

  2. When HP delivers thier version of Apple’s iPod…we’ll all breathe a ::sigh:: of relief.

    This is a BIG first, from my recollection…an IBM
    compatible/PC computer manufacturer reselling an Apple product. I think everyone in the computing community will get chills from this one…when it happens.
