    "...when Apple was originally founded as a partnership on april Fools' Day 1976, there were three founders: Woz, Jobs, and a fellow by the name of Ronald Gerald Wayne..."

    From Apple Confidential...

    Apple is 26 today (but was first incorporated on Jan 3rd 1977)!

    Does anyone know for how many of those years the Apple deathbed pool has been going??? I remember hearing people claiming that Apple was going under in the late 80's, and all through the 90's. Are they still saying it, or have they finally shut up??

    How about starting up a windblows deathwatch??? How long before m$ gives up and closes their doors??? The evil empire that we all know and loathe and could easily live without.

    Oh, how much nicer the world would be without Bill Gates in it... :D

    According to Death Clock, Apple will die on Sunday, March 20, 2061 where as Microsoft will die around 2022 (could not find the day and month that M$ was est.).

    The difference is, Apple will "die" to create a new company that deals with a new era... Microsoft will just die.

    I'm surprised nothing special has been offered. But come to think of it, I don't remember last year Apple doing anything either, at that was their quarter century. Not even a press release, huh?

    Oh, the death clock is a well known, semi-amusing website, where you find the supposed date of your (or other's) death....

    On another note... Haven't read Apple Confidential, but does anyone here remember the book by Michael Morris called "The Little Kingdom" about Apple? not quite a recent publication but it gives an *awful* lot of info about the founders' lives, most notably Job's new age hippie blunders...

    Any way we can accelerate the demise of m$??? Besides buying Mac systems that is.

    Well, the life of a sadist is shorter than that of a pessimist, any way we can make M$ sadistic?
