  • Quote: Originally posted by Splinemodel First off, Steve Jobs would do fine at HP, which is no more conventional than Apple. Second off, he's not a realistic candidate for the job, because I doubt he's interested in leaving Apple right now. …
  • Quote: Originally posted by air video They should buy Bang and Olufsen Yes, B&O, Bose or one of the hi-fi manufacturers may be a good choice. Another option would be a mobile phone/handset company. But that would have to be a merger/…
  • Quote: Originally posted by torifile You just want an appearance change? You can do that by editing the nib files for mail. YOu haven't suggested a single thing that would be improved by changing it. Well one thing I would like to see is bett…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Kickaha Disagree. Mail is not 1) a single-window app 2) an app that emulates a physical device 3) an organizational app with collections therefore, it doesn't meet any of the criteria for a metallized app. …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Brad Why?? There's no reason at all for Mail to be metal, no reason for its name to be changed, and certainly no reason for it to be included as part of the digital hub. Mail interface can do with simplification. I…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Hobbes 2GB miniPod, $149. 4GB miniPod, $199. Range of colors. Either: 1. Apple will produce a flash memory based device (256MB) at say $249 or $199 designed to play Apple's AAC formatted music. OR: 2. Ap…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion A completely new iMac will be a rather big deal, I see it as tied into the Super Bowl Ad, they will want a "Big Bang" for this new iMac and the Super Bowl dovetails nicely with the 20th anniversary of the Maci…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion That is why I see the OEMing of the IBM Blade Center product as a slam dunk, no brainer way for Apple to offer this type of product. Design a front plate with the Apple logo is about all they would have to do.…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion HP bought Compaq to let them expand their PC offerings and market. They would hardly have bought Compaq if they gave any thought to getting out of the PC business. Actually, HP would have bought Compaq no…

  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion SGI's customer list is impressive. But less than impressive, is when you take a look at their cash flow which shows a disturbing amount of red ink as portrayed by the numbers in parenthesis. They lost about…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion So would you comment on the possibility of Apple and IBM working together in gaining Industry and enterprise accounts? IBM already has too much on its plate already with its AIX, OS400 and Linux OSs in the …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion The Alias/Wavefront software division is the "crown jewel" in SGI's remaining portfolio. Now buying this would be a great advance for Apple's plans to dominate in the film/graphics market. I think Apple's…
  • Quote: Originally posted by FormatC2 The armchair marketing gurus on this thread make me laugh out loud at their ignorance. What makes me laugh are the arguments that suggest Apple has a chance in the enterprise.
  • Quote: Originally posted by FormatC2 Apple's brand is one of top, most recognized brands in the world. It is right up there with Coca-Cola and Disney. Yes, but not in the enterprise.
