  1. Good gain today, but MSFT was up about the same and the overall Nasdaq was up more (in percentage). But Apple has “good news” events stacked up at least through June.

  2. To be fair to RIM, Doug McIntyre who wrote that 24/7WallSt article is a nutter. He’s always panning Apple, with nonsensical reasons, so I can’t imagine that he has a well-reasoned argument against RIM.

  3. The reason MS is up is because of those lame-ass sidekick clones they just released. It’s giving MS stock a bit of ‘buzz’ right now.

    As soon as people realize that that crap isn’t gonna sell (well, maybe it will sell about as well as the Zune), the stock price will settle back down.

    Apple will meet and surpass MS market cap. Don’t worry.
