+ - 1.8m Macs sold this Quarter

"Across the Mac line, Apple seems to have had a exceptional Thanksgiving weekend," he wrote. "[Fourth quarter] demand for MacBook and MacBook Pro are running better than Apple's already aggressive targets."

Though his forecast calls for profit margins to drive earnings of $0.79 per share on sales of $6.38 billion, I skeptically wonder whether Apple's stock will take their "normal drop" even after they announce they've beaten expectations after their big forthcoming event."

In an Ohio Highschool, they're trying a different approach to provide Religion-slanted classes to public school students. You pay out of your own pocket for a reglious-slanted course. If you pass, you receive credit just as you would have for a normal class. The classes are paid for without the use of Government funding/taxes. So everyone's OK with this approach, right? Think again."
