AAPL has told us there will be no CEO announcement at MacWorld S.F. They have also told us NOT TO expect anything on a new MacNC...despite what Ellison's mouth may be saying.
AAPL released its last press release on Dec 22.
Don't blame AAPL and St. STePHEN (I like that name in a literal way) for 'hype' this time. Looks like the market is making its own hype based on previous MacWorlds, and the -real-potential that something big really HAS to happen.
Steve's ninety days are up. The shareholders meet in February. MacWorld is Tuesday, and earnings are released the very NeXT Wednesday.
remember '96 when Larry was talking up a takeover. "...all Steve has to do is say the word. I can get the money in a week."
and Steve said something to the effect of : I'm very happy at NeXT & PIXR.
or "I'll stay as long as Gil wants me to"
I personally see the "email prank" as a turning point. I think it indicates that Steve ( and Larry ) have finished cleaning up the past and are now looking to the future. Leaving for MW sunday - hope to see "something really big" Again I would like to propose that some time this year PIXR will be merged.
