  • Actually, the railroad companies jointly owned Railway Express Agency, which WAS a delivery company. When I was a kid you would see the REA trucks making deliveries in the neighborhood. REA and UPS and Parcel Post were it, as far as delivery companies went. But REA went bust in the 1970s, for various reasons. http://www.trains.com/trn/default.aspx?c=a&id=344

    Will the Mobile World Push Microsoft to Irrelevancy?
  • The iPhone is a sweet device. Not sure if I will get one. But, it runs OSX, it has WiFi and a camera, why no iChat AV support? That would be killer.

    What Do You Think of the iPhone?
  • Kidventus says "most Apple users are 1) rich 2) smart 3) liberal 4) creative 5) young." I would like to see the data upon which he bases that statement. I suspect he just made it up based on the Mac users he knows. For the Mac users I know, 1) sort of 2) yes 3) not bloody likely 4) less than they think, and not for a living 5) not so much. But if he has the demographic data to back it up, okay then. As for the auto racing sponsorship, the author is on to something. But, all the cool auto racing fans follow the IRL, so that's where Apple should sponsor a team. NASCAR is the Windows of auto racing, where crashing into the other guy is considered strategy. I suspect it would cost less to sponsor an IRL team than an NASCAR team. Epson has sponsored a car in the IRL, and Panasonic currently does. (Okay, maybe some of the cool auto racing fans follow sports cars. I could get behind an Apple car running in the 24 Hours of Daytona or the 12 Hours of Sebring.)

    If Apple Shares the Joy is it a Good Thing?
