Briefly: Apple \'take down\'

In Brief: Photos of Apple's Fifth Avenue store Cube, which was "unpeeled on Wednesday night, show a large white Apple logo suspended in the upper-middle of the cube.... While trying to get a new MacBook yesterday, a reporter witnessed a "take down" (and posted pictures) of a thief who tried to steal a variety of iPod accessories from the Apple retail store in San Francisco.... Following the launch of Apple's Intel Core Duo-based MacBook, Asustek Computer has camped out its design team specializing in Apple products at the company's manufacturing facilities in Suzhou in preparation for volume production.... Rumor has it that a major band--the report speculates it may be U2--will make an appearance at the grand opening of the Apple Store Fifth Avenue retail store in Manhattan this Friday, according to a tipser who said that Apple has asked for part of the street to be closed off.... Trans International has released 1GB and 512MB MacBook memory modules (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM/PC2-5300 SO-DIMM) for the Apple's new MacBook laptops..... Apple's execs continue to cash in on Apple's success, as newly appointed iPod chief Tony Fadell exercised 45,437 stock options -- including 3500 owned by his wife -- to cash in on $3.2 million, while Apple retail exec Ron Johnson exercised a total of 150,000 company stock options, making nearly $11 million.

    Who needs a cube. I thought all mac users bowed at the heels of king steve and all that he does and say.

    But it'll be great when he finally passes on. Although, unlike mecca, this cube is steve's when the rent runs out, so it might end up over his grave then.
