It makes sense that homework for a class entitled, math for business analysis, contains the actual profits from actual companies, and that's why it makes even more sense that Apple's illustrious iPod is featured in a math textbook at San Francisco State.
Get ready for another entertaining episode of “Bill and Jerry’s Excellent Adventures.” This time, the two decide to leave their gloriously wealthy lives behind for a taste of what it’s like to live a normal life (one that doesn’t involved owning a moon house that hovers over Seattle).

Ahhh, the silent ringtone. It’s been on every phone I’ve had in the last eight years or so. But, like voice dialing, one-touch speed dialing, MMS, and the ability to shoot video of my dog running around at the beach, it’s one of the things I’ve had to give up since transitioning to an iPhone.
I can hear you already. “Just flip the switch to make your phone silent, Stupid.”
But I don’t want my phone to be silent; I want the ability to selectively silence my phone for certain callers. Those annoying telemarketing recordings come to mind.
