Apple respected in 2005

Apple has finally , but 2005--the year of the iPod--will be a tough act to follow and the upcoming transition in 2006 to Intel-Macs may be challenging, according to BusinessWeek columnist Arik Hesseldahl. "Apple's 2005 product-release schedule was nothing short of extraordinary. Looking back through all the press releases, and not accounting for differences in storage capacity, I've counted releases of no less than six different variants of iPod alone. That's marketing." Hesseldahl points to the widespread adoption of Mac OS X Tiger, as well as the sales figures for iPod sales, which neared 23 million in the fiscal year. Touching on Apple's soaring stock price, the columnist notes that the Apple faithful have been duely rewarded: "those who went long on Apple during its crisis days in mid-1997 found their faith rewarded in spades this year."

    faith rewarded with spade

    how? I go to an Apple store, I'm told I have to pay to get an answer. I can't call and ask a question and get help, either. I take my iBook in for an obvious logic board failure, I'm told it's abuse. Yeah... really repaying the faithful. no, really.
