Re: Apple Could Become Obsolete

That's a flamboyant headline but that guy is just saying the same thing that Warren Buffet does -- tech companies are complicated and change so quickly that he has a hard time knowing a good investment.

Apple could easily have a string of [more]

Re: MSFT not learning from its mistakes

Microsoft is trying to build a holy grail product that you can carry with you and drop into a cradle where it connects to a display and acts like a desktop.

Re: What?

Are you saying Amazon had sold tens of millions of Kindles? Because I can't recall Amazon EVER releasing sales figures.
