Coming soon...... Jobs: Dell Should Close Shop "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders," Steve Jobs said before a crowd of several thousand IT executives referring to the newly unprofitable status of Dell Corporation since the launch of BootCamp and Mac OS X Leopard. http://news.com.com/Dell+Apple+shoul..._3-203937.html
Don't worry, he will get all that money back when the stock goes to $100 or more per share before the end of the year. 8) However it does suck that they couldn't structure it so that he would only pay 20% capital gains taxes. It looks like he is paying income tax on the amount.
I agree, it's an insanely great time to buy! I just picked up another 50% of my prior position. This brings my average cost per share up to $35.59. This small window here will be the last time you see it under $60 until it splits. Viva Jobs!
What you are talking about is MS's Software Assurance Program... I believe you can get contracts for up to 3 years. However, this usually adds 50%-100% to the cost of the original license.http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/p...a/default.mspx Every customer with Microsoft Software Assurance receives access to new versions of licensed software released during the term of the agreement. Having new version rights to the latest Microsoft software provides flexibility and...
As for the Mac Mini ship time increasing AFTER the MacBook Pro ship time decreasing, that is false. The ship times for the mini were changed before Friday 3/17/06 at 4:12 PM. I posted about it in this thread: http://forums.appleinsider.com/showt...threadid=62028 Also, I don't buy this story at all about the delays having to do with shared components between all the Intel Macs. If that were the case, why has the Intel iMac delay never exceeded 24 hours since launch while...

In other news it appears that MacBook Pro demand is still holding strong with ship times at 2-3 weeks on the apple store. The Intel Mac Mini also appears to be outpacing Apple's internal projections as the Apple Store shipping delay is up to 4-6 days, up from 24 hours when it was released a little over 2 weeks ago. I project that there is a 93.14159265358979323846264338327950% chance of Apple exceeding the consensus estimate for revenue in the current...
You guys are talking about the World Wide Web. What I was referring to tounge-in-cheek was Al Gore's claim during the 2000 presidential election campaign as quoted below. "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet." http://www.wired.com/news/politics/0,1283,18390,00.html I was just kind of trying to make a joke, one which admittedly might not be as well recognized abroad. It is really cool especially for...
I like how they managed to get the inventor of the Internet Albert Gore of Clinton white house fame on their board.
