SPAM: 'NYT' Reporter Who Got Iraqi WMDs Wrong Now Highlights Iran 3

Journal by Jeremiah Cornelius

Saturday's New York Times features an article, posted at the top of its Web site late Friday, that suggests very strongly that Iran is supplying the "deadliest weapon aimed at American troops" in Iraq. The author notes, "Any assertion of an Iranian contribution to attacks on Americans in Iraq is both politically and diplomatically volatile."

What is the source of this volatile information? Nothing less than "civilian and military officials from a broad range of government agencies."

It's funny.  Laugh.

So it's obvious that they want to include "mac" - focusing the brand. And now we're likely to have the MacBook (formerly iBook) when it's released and the MacBook pro.

We also have the iMac and PowerMac - probably will become MacPro?

MacBook Pro, as others have observed, is not a good name. It's quite clunky - I keep thinking of the word "brick" when I say it - not a good image when applied to a laptop. My suggestion if they really want to ditch "Power":

iBook - ProBook

iMac - ProMac Simple, and more Apple-like I think.
