Slow Week

I'm back. All seven of my regular readers can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

Apple TV Released

Big news. Woo. Hoo.

Hard to believe it's being reported about as though it was some big frigging surprise. Dang. It does everything Apple said it would, which surprises a bunch of people who don't get Apple.

It doesn't do stuff Apple never said it would do, which surprises a bunch of people who don't get Apple.

John C. Dvorak says negative things about Apple in a recent column

John C. Dvorak has been singing Apple's death song for about twenty years. He has to know he's full of shit. He's been saying the same thing over and over and being 180ยบ out from reality every single time, since way back when he had hair and a normal-sized prostate.

Give him credit for originality, though. He always thinks up new and interesting ways to piss off the faithful. This time, he says Apple should ditch the iPhone. That's stupid even by Dvorak's standards. If you're really interested, you've already read it. If not, don't bother. It's shit. And that, boys and girls, is all the inches JCD gets this month.

Vista is selling like crazy

Sounds like a load of cattle excreta to me. I think I'll suspend belief until there are some real numbers to examine.

Michael Dell is retaking the helm at Dell Computer

It's good. The captain should go down with the ship. The great ship of Dell/HP/Microsoft is in dangerous waters. Apple has already crossed their "T." The next few years will be a fun time to be a shareholding Apple fan.

Have a lovely weekend.
