Rumor: Steve Jobs’ Health Declining Rapidly

65DAE29F-3164-447B-8412-F9DD700383A9.jpg

I believe Steve Jobs is one of the greatest people of this century!

I HATE to read about rumors of his health. But like millions of others, I am concerned and worried.

According to Gizmodo:

“Steves health is rapidly declining. Apple is choosing to remove the hype factor strategically vs letting the hype destroy apple when the inevitable news comes later this spring.

This strategic loss will be less of a bang with investors. This is why Macworld is a no-go anymore. No more Steve means no more hype. Saying they are no longer needing [Macworld] is the cover designed by the worldwide ‘loyalty’ department.”

Picture 5.png

If you want to watch movies on your new iPhone or iPod touch (and who doesn’t?), you need to get HandBrake! Funny name, funnier logo but a great FREE App!

“HandBrake 0.9.3 is an excellent free multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 ripper and converter for Leopard and much more. It now includes support for AppleTV, PS3 and iPhone, iPod Touch and iPod Nano. You can also download versions for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and Linux 64 bit.”

iPhone at Wal-Mart on Sunday

According to Yahoo News:

FA4880AC-B4C4-4E21-9971-9E439B75B80A.jpg“Wal-Mart will start selling Apple’s popular iPhone on Sunday, the chain said, confirming earlier reports by employees.

Bentonville-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will become the second independent retail chain after Best Buy Inc. to sell the phone. It is also sold at Apple Inc. and AT&T Inc. stores.

Wal-Mart will sell the phones for $2 less than the regular price with a two-year contract: $197 for the 8-gigabyte model, or $297 for the 16-gigabyte model. Best Buy is discounting the phone by $9.

Reports that Wal-Mart would sell the phone, but not the exact launch date or the terms, surfaced early this month through store employees who had been briefed.”

The savings are minimal! Why bother?
