Bahh.. even apple fans and loyalists have to agree with me that most
apple management decisions over the last few years seem to made using a
big dart board and the people responsible for putting alternatives on it
haven't been doing a good job either. We're going to allow clone
computers... no were not! etc. This could explain their poor
performance against say a company like Microsoft that persues
Machiavellian style plots and directions with an efficiency that would
make a James Bond villain jealous.

BTW Joe, does BillG ever zip around the office in a motorized wheelchair
with a white cat??
