1984 Ad
The "revised" 1984 ad shows the hammer-wielding woman carrying an iPod. It took several glimpses of the woman before I realized what Apple had done to the ad. Steve was smitten as he showed the comercial the second time to let eveyone see the Pod.

iTunes Music Store ITMS
Announcements for the ITMS, none of which mean anything to Canadians or anyone else without a US billing address.
Billboard charts of top hits from 1946 to the present

Garageband
Apple paid garageband.com, a MP3 download site, to use the Garageband name, or share the name. Why didn't they just call it iGarageband or iSomethingelse.??

G5 XServe, 2003, $3000USD:
1.73" x 17.6" x by 28" = 852 cu. in.
33 lb.
Performance: 9.0 Gigaflops

Is actually smaller, although heavier, than the:

Mac Portable, 1989, $7300USD:
4.05" x 15.25" x 14.83" = 915 cu. in.
15.8 lb.
Performance: 1.3 MIPS

and thousands of times faster, of course. Anybody desperate for a G5 laptop? Just add a UPS and an LCD monitor and build yourself a nice carrying case ...
:D hmmm... and some sort of video interface and some noise cancelling earphones...
