Well, it’s a bit of a stock roller coaster as always at Apple, Inc. Apple announced the iPhone 4 was moving to Verizon. That’s good. Then Steve Jobs announced he was taking an indefinite medical leave for the second time. That’s bad. But then he showed up to deliver the keynote speech at the iPad 2 event and, aside from looking a little thin, seemed to be in reasonable condition. That’s good. Now, more good news. According to Fortune, Apple is number one on the Most Admired companies list for the fourth straight year. You can check out the article, and the other Top Fifty at cnn.com (Microsoft is still holding on at number nine).
So Rumors are already swirling about the iPhone 5, even though its release isn’t (presumably) until June. It seems that amid all the antenna controversy the life of the iPhone 4 was too brief. Sure, it wasn’t entirely functional if you held it in your hand. Sure, the move to Verizon was supposed to have corrected the network coverage issues but apparently didn’t at all. I still never met a single owner that complained or wanted to return theirs. Plus, as if it hasn’t been said enough, the design is just stunning. Well, you can say goodbye to the double glass. Everyone seems to be under the impression that the aluminum backing is coming back from the first-generation grave. Thanks to the unprecedented success of the iPad and soon to be iPad 2, Apple appears to have taken the better elements of the original iPhone and created a device that has five years worth of perfecting built in. Here’s a projected design mockup from an Apple news blog in Japan:
Sorry to any of you who just picked up an iPhone 4, but the anticipation for the next gen is going to start getting thick over the next few weeks. Here we go.

Guess who didn’t quit his job today……Steve Jobs. Now guess who did……..Bill Gates. Looks like Macs really are the way to go; ol’ Stevie’s not going anywhere. Hooray. Ok, now that I have that out of my system- I’m actually quite impressed with Mr. Gates, leaving the glory of Microsoft to work on his charitable foundation. It’s always good to see someone put his fortune to good use. So, just this once, lets give three cheers for Bill.
Moving on, I’m pretty excited for this weekend. My brother, who lives in Germany, is coming back to the states for a few days and good times will be had. I can’t wait to show him my iPhone and rub it in his face because he doesn’t have one. Although, he will be getting one soon I’m sure. I mean who can resist a 3G iPhone for only $200.00?
Well thats about all I’ve got to discuss today. I hope all of you learned something- I know I did. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, and be safe!
