    So I realized that Arn's real name is Arnold Kim, I think that's kick ass (I'm Asian)! Finding out about that somehow made my day.

    Am I the only one who read the subject as a possessive, in that Arn owned or possessed an Asian (girlfriend perhaps) and this was a discussion of her merits?

    It's kinda interesting. For some reason I always thought Arn was Indian, although I don't know why. I also thought he would be in his mid-40s...again totally baseless.

    Arn is always under-the-radar, even on his own site, so it's interesting to get a glimpse into who he is. Does it matter, though? not really. Honestly, Mac Rumors don't matter either -- unless you're about to buy apple products or apple stock. Most of what we do here is for fun/communication/alleviating boredom.

    I watched the CNBC clip about iPhone. Arn obviously thought ahead and came prepared with notes and anecdotes; he was prepared to answer some tricky questions. The dude from loop rumors was made to look rather foolish (by an admittedly obnoxious interviewer), but I think he got flustered and didn't have his answers practiced enough to quickly rattle them off.

    Arn is not asian, he is nothing. He doesn't exist in person. All you saw was an illusion;)

    Would be more interesting if he were black. Are there any black MR members? Someone start a race pole thread (in a positive, good spirit of course).

    I just don't get why race should be important... It strikes me just as relevant as shoe size or hair color.

    "Should" be important? Or is important?

    'Cause it is important (and relevant) for about a million reasons.

    *waits for Arn to close thread*

    Arn's too nice.

    However, as a German/Scottish/Irish/British/French/Swiss/Amerindian Iowan, I'm not. :)
