Regarding the Apple move in enterprise sales – they have now 3% marketshare and grew 66%, but PCs have 97% marketshare and grew 4.5%… my math might be a little fuzzy but it seems to me that PCs still outsold Mac better than 2:1. While it’s better than 20:1 like it was before iPhone made Apple hip again, it’s still has miles to go to make a real dent.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaa? It was a bit of a shock that I got a local audio ad in the midst of your Ira Sohn Conference video. (it isn’t on Felix;s list yet)

Although it was somewhat apropos being you were discussing hard core selling, it reminded me my privacy on the internet is a very tenuous thing. Is that really progress? (As you may have guessed, my answer, as a consumer, is no… and it ticked me off)

“Dominique Strauss-Kahn is well-known as a seducer,” his official biographer, Michel Taubmann, said. “I can’t believe he would force himself on an unwilling woman. That doesn’t make sense.”

@hsvkitty, that’s hilarious. Wasn’t targeted at you, I promise! The producer here in NY just dropped in a YouTube clip from a Winnipeg car dealer, circa 1986…

HAH! OK that is hilarious! I really thought there was some new technology so that cookies could add ads!

(being that is the new technology being introduced for phones I figured imbedding it in a video might also be possible… crap I hope I didn’t give someone any ideas!)
