  1. Nice of them to make Weeds available for purchase six months after there has been bittorrent and bittorrent not only of the show in AVI format, but also converted for ipod.

    Some smart marketing there.

  2. APPLE IS DYING

    Who said that?

    Apple manipulates it’s stock so easy it’s not even funny, all you have to do is listen very carefully.

    Steve Jobs has the stock market widget running on his desktop (drag widget out, then deactivate Dashboard) so he know exactly when to announce a new product to stem the slide.

    iPod life support strikes again.

  3. Apple is pretty smart to release the 1 GB ipod nano now, since it is 7 days before valentines day. SO instead of a 150 dollar jewelry item u can get that girlfriend a ipod nano.
