    i-Carramba

    Could this be the latest revolutionary Apple product coming early in 2010? Or another bust? (Apple does have them from time to time).

    Bust. Why would you carry that when you can carry an iphone that does the same thing?

    Around $160/share. Too bad you didn't double down in January when the stock was $79.

    Why would anyone want a computer that uses pictures instead of text commands? Why would anyone want a little gizmo that plays all your music off a hard drive or flash memory? Why would anyone want a phone that you can surf the Internet with?

    Good call, Apple has had one bad idea after another for 25 years. You know, Yahoo and Microsoft are looking for geniuses like you help them innovate further.

    The stock closed at $159.99 today.

    There's a message in there somewhere, but I'm not sure what it is. It's a Retail Omen. I'll pray to the Apple Oracle, he'll know.

    Apparently the Apple tablet is the new iWalk.



    And Apple rumor sites are still annoying.

    Possibly that a lot of idiots have been separated from their cash.

    The question is what great product will Apple come up with next? Maybe they should turn to the keyboard. Instead of having all those ugly keys, it could be a single flat touch panel

    Then, they could get rid of the power cord for their desktop and laptop computers. It would transmit power through the air as envisioned by Nicolai Tesla more than 100 years ago.

    Nothing is as idiotic as Windows, with the possible exception of you.

    Hot shower, use soap with a course grit, rinse and repeat. Should take care of that dirty feeling.

    Is this the new one with the "assassinate employee" -function?

    My prediction is that Apple is going to move in to the gaming market and try to compete with Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. Their iPhone is already a competitor with the DSi and PSP.

    What prediction? As you point out, it's already happening now. They're simply going to compete with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and this iTablet they come out with. It won't be a specific gaming move so much as an ancillary business that grows out of their App Store. They won't even pay much attention to it and they'll become the biggest player. Just watch them.
