COOL! Forbes knows inside info!

"Good news for the Apple boss: From April 2003 through January 2004, some "turbo-cosmic energy" will bring on "an unprecedented surge of creativity" that Miller says will result in well-received new products. The sweet spot will be in August 2003, when Miller says he'll be able to announce "breakthrough news," involving a deal with Apple and a major partner. Think different, indeed."

Found this here....

Hmmm

Sorry for the DP but...

Could this "major partner" be Phillips? Dang, I wish apple could be a little earlier on this announcement.

Oh yea, to read the article, click the banner that says "The Signs of CEO Success" (kinda looks like an advertisement)

You have to wait about 90 seconds for the section on S Jobs.

"Turbo-cosmic energy" will give the Apple boss "an unprecedented surge of creativity" from April 2003 through January 2004. Next August he'll be able to announce "breakthrough news "-a deal with a major partner or the government.

Umm... Astrology? Your kidding right.

Post What about this is news?

IBM will have the 970 about ready by then. They're more than likely the new partner that the article mentions.

Good grief!

I really didn't understand what the big deal was about this "turbo-cosmic" stuff. "What the-?"

Pretty funny stuff.

I thought IBM has been a long time partner? They must be referring to someone different.

What bout a cell phone company? iPhone? That would be a pretty big partner.

what about...

What about Sony.

First, Apply aspires to be like them.
Second, Philips is partnering with Apple on Rendevous...so what? Apple could partner with Sony and make all sony products (TVs, DVD players, etc) rendevous compatable and put firewire 2 ports in a lot of them. That would be a hell of a lot better than with just Philips.

I could see Apple doing what you're saying - working with Sony to make sure its products are compatible with Apple technologies. I don't think you'll ever see a cobranded Apple/Sony product, though - both companies pride themselves on product design too much to share credit like this. I could see a cobranded Apple/Philips product, though, since Philps has the manufacturing capability and distribution channels, and Apple has the great design team.
