  1. And I should think Microsoft is quaking in fear (and from the vibrations of chair throwing). They haven’t got long and I’m sure even Barmy Ballmer realises that.

  2. re #1…

    Lets take it easy here, kids…XOM’s net profit > AAPL’s gross revenue…

    I love ’em too, but jeez ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  3. In the 70’s I was told at school that at the rate we were using oil, it would all be gone within 15 years (mid-90’s).

    I was told by Ted Danson in the early 80’s that at the rate we were cutting trees, by 2000 the US would have no more forests left.

    I’m glad I’m not an old fart who no longer has a brain of mush drinking the coolaid, but somewhere along the line put on my critical thinking cap and figured things out.

    Oh, Go Apple!
