I can't find the previous thread at the moment, but I believe TS adequately explained how / why he's often THE, or one of the first to post...
Well, it will be interesting to see the discrepancies between The Apple Store and a Microsoft store.  My local Apple Store is in the Village in Corte Madera.  Often that store is so packed with shoppers that it's claustrophobic.  This when the rest of the mall is nearly empty.    I volunteer some of my IT time helping seniors with computer purchases and support on behalf of a local Seniors Center.  Out of fairness to my senior clients, who are usually Windoze users, part...

While I agree with your summation of the retail music world offered by iTunes, my experience (albeit maybe compartmentalized to the people I see and know?) is that a lot - if not most - younger folks still steal their music. My daughter and her friends NEVER buy music off of iTunes or any other paid distribution point - they buy videos, movies and TV shows, yes, but never music. They simply RIP the audio to MP3's from YouTube videos using any one of a number of online...
This^ Not news. This is how retail works.

>>>> In the face of strong demand that led to a record launch for the new iPad, Apple has begun to improve supply for its touchscreen tablet, as new orders from its online store are now advertised to ship in one to two weeks. Improve? As of yesterday, my Apple order status said that my iPad that I ordered online March 9 would ship on or before March 19? Now it says, "1 - 2 weeks" from today? I'm missing how that's an improvement?
Huh? Does that mean I'm not up $0.71 to $545.18?
I stopped seriously listening to financial "experts" many years ago shortly after I was talked into selling a pile of Apple stock by one these so called "financial professionals". Within 30 days of selling, the stock had gained about 10% overall. It's now a couple of hundred dollars up since then! Yeesh! My cost basis is under $10 a share and 'yes' I understand that holding on to something like Apple goes against every accepted financial guideline. Everyone's...
I'm with you here too... If Apple can come up with a viable alternative to the cable and satellite strangleholds, I'm in! Apple turned the music and much of the phone industry on their heads, so there is some precedence for hope here. I can't imagine ever spending $1000 to $1500 on a TV, but if it means the demise of the current cable and satellite paradigms, well... I'll have to reconsider. My wish would be for an iTunes sort of TV menu with maybe a small monthly...
