Absolutely Nothing

No News.

There are a few things worthy of rehashing because, after all, today's first NFL Playoff game isn't until 1:00 PST.

At MacWorld last week Apple introduced some stuff:

Apple TV – Way cooler than anybody has figured out yet.

iPhone – This is going to do just what everybody wants a cell phone to do, and it's going to do it right. And it's going to look cooler than a pair of RayBan Wayfarers doing it.

Airport Extreme 802.11n – Home file server for chump change. Faster transfer rates.

I will have at least one of each.

This week Apple published their first quarter earnings. As usual, earnings kicked some major earnings-projection ass. Since Apple's first quarter includes the holidays, all the analysts think they won't do as well this quarter. The stock price went down. It'll be back.

The Month of Apple Bugs is well underway. One major success has been the release of the Storm Worm – a Windows Trojan Horse worm virus thingy. It isn't an Apple bug per se, in that it doesn't affect Macs, but somewhere in the code there has to be an Apple logo.
