NY Times mentions Apple
A recent New York Times articled compared select computer offerings from IBM, Dell, and Apple: "While the Apple G4 Cube is a functional objet d'art with serious computing power, the [IBM's] NetVista X40i is more of an unobtrusive desktop machine. It stands out because of its black finish, condensed design and flat- panel screen, but it is not the thing of beauty that the Cube is."

Levinson buys stock in Apple
The newest member of Apple's Board of Directors, Dr. Arthur Levinson, recently purchased a stake in the company, according to a Macworld UK report early this week. Filings from the Securities and Exchange Commission show that Levinson bought 80,600 shares in Apple, or approximately $1.55 million (estimated from market value at the time). Dr. Levinson is chair and CEO of biotech company Genentech and joined the Apple board in August, replacing retiring board member Edgar S. Woolard Jr. Levinson's presence on the board and strong support of the company (he filmed a testimonial praising the G4 Cube prior to joining Apple) is expected to help strengthen Apple's already-high marketshare in the scientific and high-end educational market.
