Actually I was banking on Apple's new strategic approach to their core business. I thought that their decision to ditch Computers from the name meant some new direction a la Google. So far I see nothing

^^^^Been buying and selling aapl for close to 2 and half years now, Apple only surges when leading up to or related to earnings news or new product announcements. Unless they come out with some new products soon it should be dead until close leading up to 1st quarter earnings but I do not foresee anything myself.

Hold on to your remote — Apple's push into the living room will take a few more weeks.
The company said late Monday that Apple TV, a gadget designed to allow users to wirelessly stream downloaded music and movies from their computers to their television sets, will not start shipping until March.
"Wrapping up Apple TV is taking a few weeks longer than we projected, and we now expect to begin shipments mid-March," Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ) spokeswoman Lynn Fox said Monday. The company declined to elaborate on the cause of the delay.
Apple chief Steve Jobs teased the Apple TV in September and showcased it alongside the iPhone last month during his keynote address at the Macworld conference in San Francisco. Jobs had said the $299 device would be available in February.
Apple TV marks the computer maker's entry into the living room. The set-top box can stream music, TV episodes and movies off Apple's Macintosh computers and PCs running Microsoft Windows.
The company's iPod portable music player and iTunes media store dominate their markets, but Apple TV will enter a crowded field. Microsoft's latest Windows operating system, Vista, boasts several media-specific features, especially when combined with its Xbox 360 videogame system, which is already present in some 10 million homes.
Set-top box manufacturers like Motorola and Cisco's Scientific Atlanta are bulking up their devices with bigger hard drives and networking features.
Earlier this month, TiVo began a trial with Web retailer Amazon.com to allow people who buy digital videos through Amazon's Unbox service to play them on their TV sets.

I'm afraid that aapl is coming late to an already overcrowded home/livingroom sector of the market--one in which Microsoft, Tivo, Sony and others already have a dominant presence. And w/ their delay of the products I fear they could be looking at a rougher year than expected. Plus I read that BitTorrent is going to launch movie and TV downloads, which would compete w/ aapl iTunes, etc.

W/ China taking the markets down today I'm turning off CNBC. I hate days like these!

Don't believe everything you think

Apple is all about integration of hardware and software into a package that delivers the best user experience.

A much higher percentage of Mac users actually do things with them. PCs can generally get a job done, but cobbling together the needed pieces becomes a science project.

As far as the iPhone is concerned, it will sell out and become hard to find for quite a while. It will be a stunning success. The first iteration will be nice, and follow on generations will be even better.

Don't panic! Unload some dogs, if you must, but my people are looking at this as a buying opportunity.

Thanks for that little commercial--and bit of BS. Your name isn't Dave Jobs is it?

Obviously I am speculating regarding the iPhone.

Please enlighten me regarding the rest.
