So i got freaked out about 10mins ago.

I bought OSX tiger since i have another powerbook thats running panther and i am tired of not having the little things that my other powerbooks has with tiger and i also updated my mac mini to tiger. but what freaked me out was it has this black book that tells you everything new in tiger, i get to the page about widgets and its showing the widgets and how they work. anyways one of the examples is a stock widget and of course they have aapl (apple) stock listed and next to the stock it says $83.xx share. now whats freaky is right now its trading at $83 a share and its never been up to 80 a share before or anything like that and what gets me is the black book that came with the install CD was printed in 2005 back when it was printed apples stocks where at 40-50 share. Is this just a coincidence or did they predict the stock price lol.

I'm sure Steve Jobs has shouted the black book author a beer or two already.
Conversely, illustrating Apple @$20/share would have been been a definite career killer.

RE: So i got freaked out about 10mins ago.

Industry projections must have been right on target (in which they are nearly always wrong).

I should have bought it when it was $12.00 a share in Feb. 2003, when I bought my first Mac. It has since split (was it twice?) and is hovering at 80 + per share. I have a friend who has owned several thousand shares since 1998. He said it was hard to hold on to it those first few years but he's glad he did.
