Mental Note

Any dose of calm and perspective brought on by three weeks of relative peace and quiet can be undone by a mere 48h of "regular" work.

The Apple quarterly results detail was somewhat surprising, though - business looks to be improving, although I would very much like to see a breakdown of European sales, since pretty much everyone who has talked to me in the past couple of days regarding Macs was complaining about their complete absence in retail (even iPods are gone from shelves).

As to tomorrow's announcement (whatever it turns out to be), the best take comes from an IBM staffer I've been talking to: "Whatever they announce (on Wednesday), I'll dress up as a reindeer if it's in Portuguese shops before Xmas".

I'm not in a hurry to find him a reindeer suit.
