As posted on Slashdot “Nine years after Michael Dell said he’d shut down Apple and give the money to the shareholders, Apple has passed Dell in market value, at $72,132,428,843 compared to Dell’s $71,970,702,760. Analysts expect Apple to continue to outperform competitors, citing 2006 as ‘poised to be the year of both iPod growth and, more importantly, Mac market share gains,’ with earnings growing more than 35%. I should have bought stock two years ago!”

Back from CES
Well I am back from the Consumer Electronics show. There were many great things to see. Some of my highlights were a Playstation 3 mockup, the Treo 700w from Palm, The Soundblaster X-fi from Creative, and finally the wifi Skype phone from Netgear. I have poster pics taken from the show in the gallery.
