Thanks for the welcome. It has been awhile since I have been on SI, since no technology stocks interest me much lately except AAPL. I don't know if there is any company like it. I still have my original MAC in a closet somewhere. I pulled it out one day to show my kids and they just couldn't stop laughing at how long it took to boot off a floppy and the noise the floppy drive made.

>>Peak or break?<<


We'll know when we get to see the rest of the chart. ;-)

My own read is that we're getting the expected pullback. After the pullback, there will probably be some sideway action before the advance resumes.

Awesome... I told a story on here a little while ago about trashing my dads apple IIc hard drive when I was 4..... I thought I was "cleaning up" the desktop....... Luckily, you can't do that anymore. lol. To this day, I name my drives "Twyla Drive" "Twyla Phone" etc... in honor of his old hard drive being named after Twyla Tharp.

I asked the UPS guy if he had many. He said he had 20 to which I said that's not many but he thought that was alot for his area. He also knew what was in the box as he said "your new iPad Linda".

OK, now I have to open the box :-)

Our UPS guy held it behind his back when he came in. He said he had like a hundred of them.

Dropped my ATT data back to 3 GB no tether saving $15

Signed up my VZ iPad for 1GB at $20 including tethering. Lifetime data used on the iPhone 4 is 5.8 GB up and 18.4 down (20 months?), which included tethering my ipad and the kids i devices in the car and elsewhere. So 1 GB should sufice. Went to Gizmodo's speedtest gizmodo.com and the thing just flew on LTE (in Needham MA outside Boston - on the RT128/I95 beltway)

$5 more per month net is a great deal.

Enjoy!!

Ha ha.

Then they'd be ROTFLMAO if they saw my computer with cassette tape drive.

Or better yet the one with the 110 baud paper tape reader.

Or even mostest betterest yet the one that you had to toggle in binary with a whopping 4k core memory

I'd say my fully loaded system with 32k but I'm aiming for max laughs here

This American Life admits exposé of Apple’s Foxconn factories was fabricated, retracts episode16TH MARCH 2012
by MATTHEW PANZARINO


In a stunning admission, the popular public radio program This American Life has said that a show it ran in early January entitled Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory, was partially fabricated. The show painted a rough image of life for workers at the Foxconn facilities in China, where Apple produces many of its devices including the iPad and iPhone.

Now, it appears as if much of that report was fabricated and TAL has retracted the entire episode.

The program has devoted this Sunday’s entire episode to corrections and has retracted the entire original episode:

Regrettably, we have discovered that one of our most popular episodes was partially fabricated. This week, we devote the entire hour to detailing the errors in “Mr. Daisey Goes to the Apple Factory,” Mike Daisey’s story about visiting Foxconn, an Apple supplier factory in China. Rob Schmitz, a reporter for Marketplace, raises doubts on much of Daisey’s story.

The program was largely based on a story by performer Mike Daisey about a visit he made to Foxconn. Host Ira Glass will speak with Daisey about why he misled the program during the fact-checking process. There will also be a segment dedicated to the facts surrounding Apple’s production facilities.

Daisey has put up a statement on his blog about the matter:

This American Life” has raised questions about the adaptation of AGONY/ECSTASY we created for their program. Here is my response:

I stand by my work. My show is a theatrical piece whose goal is to create a human connection between our gorgeous devices and the brutal circumstances from which they emerge. It uses a combination of fact, memoir, and dramatic license to tell its story, and I believe it does so with integrity. Certainly, the comprehensive investigations undertaken by The New York Times and a number of labor rights groups to document conditions in electronics manufacturing would seem to bear this out.

What I do is not journalism. The tools of the theater are not the same as the tools of journalism. For this reason, I regret that I allowed THIS AMERICAN LIFE to air an excerpt from my monologue. THIS AMERICAN LIFE is essentially a journalistic - not a theatrical - enterprise, and as such it operates under a different set of rules and expectations. But this is my only regret. I am proud that my work seems to have sparked a growing storm of attention and concern over the often appalling conditions under which many of the high-tech products we love so much are assembled in China.

The program, along with a series of articles in the New York Times that was in the works before Daisey’s appearance, led to a mass of attention towards Apple’s production facilities in China.

Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed the issues surrounding working conditions in China at a Goldman Sachs conference last month.“Apple takes working conditions very seriously,” said Cook, launching right into a question about how Apple handles working conditions. “We take the conditions of workers very seriously. I worked in factories, I worked at a paper mill. We understand working conditions at a very granular level.”
