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.

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.
