Choosing Apple

I remember when we were debating whether to use Macs for our high school laptop program that there was some concern about Apple’s long term viability: http://money.cnn.com/2011/07/19/technology/apple_q3_earnings/index.htm?hpt=hp_t2

UPDATED with better video: I have never been a big fan of Lady Gaga feeling that most of her songs were Madonna rehashed and had an overly produced sound. However, I have to give her talent credit where it is due. This solo performance on the Stern show kind of blew me away. Unfortunately the clip doesn’t have the back story of the song regarding the passing of her grandfather. The story just added to the emotion of the performance. (The clip must have been recorded along with the sounds of a computer because a couple times some AIM client sounds pop up).

Have to say it turned into a very nice day here in Syracuse.
