"The Reporter, however, adds a bit more color on the matter, citing sources who say "it wasn't Apple but NBC Universal that was being stubborn in their previous negotiation stalemate."

"Apple on Thursday expanded its presence in Texas by revealing that it will transfer 174 jobs from its Elk Grove, California call center to its Austin location." Great - more call center workers that speak a language ordinary Americans can't understand.
I like the look of the Gulfstream - understated, white, clean lines, handsome in a quiet way. Kind of like the white iMac.
What is the TDP of the last generation of iMacs (like the 2.8 GHz Extreme)? Is this an increase in power consumption?
It's not $300, it's $200 to upgrade from 2GB to 4GB (the article is wrong).
