Apple: The Best Revenge Is Living Well
Though I've seen articles today that continue to raise questions about what Apple does for its next trick, I would have thought that an Internet that becomes more and more based on delivering visual content is right up Jobs' alley.

Now that we've seen WinAqua, how about, er, well, MacAqua?
For some reasons, I like this quote from a technical support person... "One woman bought an iMac, took it out of the box, and then called us and said 'Well, we've got the monitor, where's the computer?'"
Shawn King, of Mac Show, wrote in to say that, no, Apple has not changed its logo again. Apparently, the Wall Street Journal has just noticed the change recently. (Oh, and Mr King was quoted in the article too. "It's like your little brother has finally got a new set of clothes; Instead of sneakers, he's wearing a nice business suit. He's grown up." Thanks, Shawn, for writing in.
