There are evidently limits to the powers of the reality distortion field. The SEC appears to be immune.

Finally! It's been months since we had a good old-fashioned APPLE IS DEAD story; nice to see a hardy perennial poke its blossoms up through the soil again.

I would have bought a cube - but I don't need one. Not yet. The DV iMac was this year's tax deduction; the cube is next year's. I'm not alone in this - I talk to other professional Mac users, and they all say the cube is their next computer.

Wait for the stock to drop some more, then Buy! Buy! BUY!

they must have some bizarrely optimistic market expectations: most design studios i know are busily buying as many g4's as they can. i just bought thirty g4's and thirty powerbooks for my creative staff.

we'll buy cubes when they can prove they're extensible.

Damn, there's nothing like watching your entire stock portfolio (180 shares of Apple, bought in 1993) chopped in half in one day. Maybe I can afford to buy some more now. I have a feeling it's going to blast back up once OS X hits the scene next year.

why does the cube have those dust collecting slots on the top of their box?

that's very true. I've had to replace my slot-loading DVD drive on my iMac already after having it for only ~3 months in my somewhat dusty apartment.

Apple is not a growth company. Apples revenues have gone down every year for the last five years. They are earning money now, but without revenue growth the stock price was not justified at $50.
