[quote]Originally posted by noleli: MacMall seems to be clearing out its TiBooks and iPods. This seems to support the idea of a speedbump in the TiBook, but an updated iPod???
How do you figure this? Is $394 a channel-clearer? Is that $6 off only available for a limited time?

As I see it, there is a strategy based on G5 availability, and an interim, pre-G5 strategy in place. G5 strategy is straightforward: get G5...

Last week, I would have said "Great! Go for it!" Now, I'm not so sure. It was working fine, then I didn't use it for a month, and now, it only works under very limited conditions: ie, it will burn a single track to audio...
[quote]Originally posted by Aphelion: Don't misunderstand me Capt. Obvious, I'm pleased in a 20% gain on the year for my AAPL investment, as we should all be as Mac fans, Having said that, from MY perspective APPL could have had the same or similar jump that SGI has had, plus the benefits of increased marketshare if they had embraced MP at about the time they "iced" the Cube. My point being that MP's have had the power to win the MHz Wars for some...
[quote]Originally posted by Aphelion: I've quadrupled my money there (SGI) as of now, but my AAPL has suffered (only up 20% on the year) because of Apple's lack of aggression in this area.
Err/umm....try looking more closely. AAPL has been a pretty darned aggressive performer in the last year or so (especially so FYTD'02). Exhibit A: your own assertion of 20% upside. Exhibit B: iPod Exhibit C: iMac 20% upward movement on a stock...
Thanks for the info!

You'll pick up a lot of useful info that way, especially since it sounds like you don't have a few specific questions, but are actually starting almost from scratch. The main thing is that you should not let obsession with gear take precedence over a willingless to play and experiment with the gear you have.
[quote]Originally posted by discstickers: Originally posted by RazzFazz: Pretty unlikely. After all, Motorola is a business, and as such, their primary concern is more likely to be making money rather than sacrificing profits just in order to exact some sort of personal revenge for long-bygone deeds. You'd hope.
That's one reason why corps have boards of directors: to prevent childish personal motives from ruining the enterprise.
I'd like to echo confirmed's thanks to everybody participating in this thread, as well as his request for more music/audio info. Especially forums like this. I've been into music all my life, and w/ my planned upgrade (~MWNY - gHz+ iMac / PMG5 ), I'm look to get involved w/ making music on my Mac, too. Unfortunately, other than a MiniMoog, I've used no electronic music equipment, and I don't know anyone who's interested in music-making, so I have no personal...
