    I tell you what though, this analyst report in this article is the most sensible one so far. The past month, the other analyst reports have been pretty darn rubbishy.

    What I imaging is this company had a bunch of pissed of clients asking why they were not invested in Apple this year and Shebly Seyrafi boss said, hey you need to cover apple and make some recommendations to the clients. So what did he do, wait until all the good rumors got out then put out his less then optomistic view, the stock drops like it does every time someone make a down side speculation.



    Then he advised his clients to buy since it fell back a bit. and then he looks good since they start making a profit right after he makes the recommendation.



    Again, I would say though that wherever this analyst came from, he's much better than other bozos such as Shawn Wu. 8)

    Heh. I hear ya brother. I think if I had a Mac mini or a MacBook (maybe sometime next year) I could offload my "critical apps" to the Mac with Leopard 10.5 and Time Machine. My PC will be the overclocking- tinkering- GAME rig. NFS: Carbon, FEAR:Extraction, HL2: Ep2, Command&Conquer3, BF2142, etc. Also the PC would be the B1t0rr3nt engine for me. So, having about 4 torrents going in the background, I'd still like to play games (single player mostly) -- specs would be 2GB Ram, RAID0 pair of 7200rpm SATA 80Gb, AMD64 Venice 1.8ghz OC'ed 2.10ghz (I may go dualcore so that torrent threads are spread over the other cores and games are becoming more multicore aware). I can tinker with fans, GPU upgrades, CPU fans, GPU fans, etc. Focus on a torrent and gaming rig for my geeky PC-side of things.

    It's like tuning your car before you hit the autobahn. And/or taking it for a spin around a raceway. Overclock, check settings, check fan speeds/ cooling, then, enjoy a good hour or two of gaming. All while torrents running in the background*. Test the system. Push it to the limits with some intense gaming. Then recheck, recalibrate, re-tinker, etc. Then test again. Ah...



    Socket 939 Athlon64 dualcore is a bit hard to find now, I think. We'll see... it's been 4 months away from my AMD64 rig, and it may be another 2-3 months maybeee.... before I get to play with it again. Hell, maybe middle of next year I'll just go to Core2duo. Hmmmmmmm........





    *I neither confirm nor deny nor specify any nature whatsoever of torrents being downloaded, hence my open discussion of them in this forum.

    This thread is a waste of bandwidth. Apple will grow, we all know this... easier to use, better, a more enjoyable experience etc. My shares know this. A retard would know this (sorry to all the retards out there, but there's a point to be made).



    I think the important part here is this analyst thinks the iPhone wont be seen at Macworld. He didn't even mention iTV or Leopard, two things could be HUGE! This is a noob analyst.



    I myself think we'll see the iPhone at Macworld, as I can't wait much longer before I trash my Razr, I may even smash it. I woundn't wish that thing on my worst enemy (not that I have one). Steve Jobs and Apple know I can't wait any longer, as I'm going to France and Amsterdam at the end of January, and I need it for my trip to listen to my tunes and such. Steve and Apple also know that cellphones have to be powered off on some flights (if not all flights) to allow the pilot to do what he does best. So not only am I expecting two batteries, but I'm expecting to be able to use the music player/iPod functionality, without having the phone-part powered on, so then I can listen to my music in-flight, in peace. The iPhone will sell like hot cakes if done right, and at 3+ years in the making it better be done right. So here's to Macworld, here's to my music playin' iPhone, and here's to an easy-to-use, well designed, well thought-out damn phone, for once.



    One more thing... How beautiful this things is is last on my priority list, sure it's a GREAT bonus, but real-world-usability is top priority for me.

    It's funny, it sounds like you don't care but you're definitely heavily emotionally invested ... Don't get too deep man, 'coz if things don't come out like you expect, you may very well be threatening to hurt yerself with your RAZR on your plane to France and Amsterdam.

    I hated my Moto in 2003 as well. I actually lost it (not on purpose... er... yeah, not on purpose...) in a club in Bondi but some nice gentleman found it and contacted me. Damn. He should have just kept it and sold it off on eBay to some unsuspecting victim.
