Apple Keynote Day

Well, I haven't seen Steve Jobs' Keynote yet but the details of Apple's new announcements are on Apple's website. For the first time I can remember the stock market has moved favorably in time with the news of Apple's latest offerings. The stock (which had already been climbing in anticipation) rocketed up 7% but has since slipped to less than a 5% gain on the day with an hour of trading to go. Typically, Wall Street is none too fazed by Jobs' "reality distortion field" but excellent iPod sales over the holiday season seem to be behind their unbridled optimism. Good, is all I can say! Even though my PowerBook is now officially old and superceded by the MacBook Pro.
