  1. Yup, the media are just putty in Job’s hands.

    For Apple, it’s a slam dunk nowadays. They have so much going on, that they can command media attention anytime they want.

    Witness the iPhone price drop. Create a scandal and them within a few days announce the 1M sale. Follow that a week later with European release. It reminds of a few years back that they announced product release week after week. It was topped off by the nano replacing the mini and that Xmas quarter they sold 14M ipods. F#$&#xin;g superb.

    I gotta say that Mac news is a sleeping giant. If Apple sell 2M+ this quarter the stock will jump something serious. Add Leopard into the mix and us shareholders are going to earn some serious wonger (that is, of course, if we were stupid enough to sell).

  2. And another thing… in answer to ‘The Other Steve’ and ‘Luke’, when I lived in France [sadly nearly 5 years ago now], there used to be roaming charges moving from France to Belgium or Germany. Idiotic I know, but they’re Telcos… and that makes them evil, really evil.
