Why I tend to not post on these forums anymore.... Endless 'debates' between the usual suspects as to who is more correct about (usually) something vaguely related to the news story... The comic geek from the Simpsons dutifully hammering away on the keyboard to express his indignation comes to mind....

Obviously I considered Apple, but the cost even then was really high and I was concerned not only by the fact that Steve WAS Apple at least in terms of perception, but also with the increased Sony-fication of Apple. IBM meanwhile continues staying out of the headlines and doing a huge amount of research and development. And...
