Apple: nothing original in Dell\'s move

Apple responded to Dell's entry into the MP3 player and online music markets with a brief statement to The Mercury News: "'It appears that Dell is re-branding one of the second-tier music services that will be announced soon, just like they are re-branding Creative's MP3 player.

Apple opens second Seattle-area retail store

Apple on Friday opened its second Seattle-area Apple Store, which is located in a small upscale shopping mall adjacent to the University of Washington. One MacNN reader writes "So the Seattle (University Village) store opened Friday at 6 p.m. PDT. Tomorrow they are throwing a big after party and giving away an iPod for each point the UW Huskies score against Stanford. First person in the door, the lovely Miss Mary Ann Brunson, who got there at 7 a.m. The second person in the door, your truly. The store is huge and features a little theater."
