iPhone is Selling!

June 30, 2007

I own Apple both in my personal portfolio, and the portfolio I manage. But I definitely had my doubts as to how many people would actually want to spend $499 to buy a phone. And I’ve wondered if Apple stock will take a break now that we’ve finally reached the release date.

Well, a friend of mine went to the Apple store today to get her computer fixed, and said it was mobbed like a rock concert. Four hour lines to sign up for iPhone service. Will be interesting to follow Apple stock this quarter.


The WallStreet Journal Covers Wikigroaning

June 17, 2007

Is Wikigroaning now an official pop-culture term? The Wallstreet journal has some funny examples of “nerd-bias” on Wikipedia.

If you haven’t checked out WikiGroaning yet, it’s worth a gander. The site compares the completeness of Wikipedia articles to demonstrate how nerdy we Wikipedians are. I previously wrote about Wikipedia’s liberal bias… Does Wikipedia have a nerd bias?

For instance, the site compares:

*Modern Warfare vs. Lightsaber Combat

*Bathing vs. Acne

*Girlfriend vs. Video Games

In all cases, the “nerd” topic far outweighs the normal topic. For more fun and games, check out Wikigroaning.com.
