Fastest iPhone, Apple Makes Conviction Buy List and MacMinute Closes

 

Fastest iPhone in the World: A senior executive at Australian iPhone provider Telstra states--the company has seen the new 3G iPhone. The executive also states that the 3G iPhone would be “capable of 42mbs” making it—the fastest iPhone in the world.

 

Apple makes Goldman Sachs's Conviction Buy List: Investment bank Goldman Sachs, analysts David Bailey, expects Apple’s stock to rise based on the release of the 3G iPhone and a expect 11 million global customer base buying 3G iPhones and app goodies at Apple’s App Store.

 

MacMinute closes: MacMinute founded by Stan Flack in 2001 is no more. Since Flack's death in April, family members have decided to shut down the site “after serious efforts to keep it going fell through.”

 

Out a Minute: The Apple store is selling refurbished Macbook Airs for $1,549 that’s $250 off retail. You might as well buy a new Macbook Air.

 

Apple’s secret event: According to electronista.com “Apple Canada is gearing up some of its representatives in advance of an upcoming event.” Key staff members are meeting for some event that could cover anything from mundane operational procedures to the expected iPhone release date.

 

And finally a rumored new iPhone commercial: Gizmodo's Jesus Diaz has it on “good authority that an iPhone ad is being shot today by a big name director.” Who could it be?

Two weeks (and including a major holiday) before the alleged WWDC release date to shoot a commercial for one of Apple's biggest announcements of the year? Oh, sure, that's plenty of time to get some quality ad material. A "big name director" probably will just ask for the ad to be aired as is in one take and with no post-production. "1984" was shot in one day, right?

I can't remember ever seeing a deal for refurbished Macs sold through Apple's website, or in their stores. Mac of All Trades (and a number of other online stores) is always way better than going through Apple for refurbs.

They've been doing this for years . . .

Apple.com is loaded with stuff, you have to dig . . .

You almost feel sad for that senior executive...saying anything about unreleased Apple products is not going to make Steve happy.

How can Apple already have refurbished Macbook Air's since they haven't been out that long yet?

Or maybe the question should be: what was wrong with them and what was replaced?

Refurbs can also be dinged units, floor units, or consumer returned units.
