I have been following Apple for quite some time
and read this board for a good chuckle as all the
players try to psych each other out...as if it really
works! Anyway I had a good laugh at your message or lack
of it I should say. The last while I have heard it
all...that Aapl earning were not going to cut it, the
earthquake, MOT problems, lack of sales, lack of new
ideas/product, cancellation of back orders,etc, etc. Now after
Aapl has beat it estimates, brought out new product,
listened to it buyers, whethered the earthquake, sorted
out the chip shortage and gone up $12 a share while
the rest of the market has taken a dump...all you can
say is that on Monday it is doing to "GO
DOWN"...based on what...that wonderfully predictive brain of
yours...say you bought a few call contracts earlier this week

For high quality ink jet printing Kodak and others
sell a "photographic grade" color print paper, without
a silver halide emulsion. Essentially it is the
substrate, a resin coated base with a subbing layer to
attract and hold the ink jet printer's image. I am amazed
how much companies charge for this without the
expensive photographic sensitizing layers. The prices for
both papers are roughly comparable. Looks like a real
money maker for them.

Have a good weekend Pat,
You worked for George Eastman? What did you do
there? Gee, my first camera, a Christmas gift from my
uncle, was an Eastman Kodak Brownie. I had a lot of fun
with that simple piece of high tech! (Reminds you of
the Mac, doesn't it? Designed so in-genious-ly that
it's un-imaginably simple for the user.)

Where is that guy who wrote that dumb article in
Barrons? Where is that guy who said techs were absurdly
overvalued? Unfortunately, as a holder of many call contracts
at 75, its too little too late. Oh well, good luck
to all you who have been loyal and long.
