Bring on January baby!
If anyone out there
has not yet noticed there seems to be alot of hype surrounding the
next MacWorld to be held in San Fran California. We see the
increased hype about the upcomming hardware releases as damaging to
Apple's christmas sales and the quarterly sales. It would be
fitting if Apple did not release anything at the upcomming MacWorld
just to spite the rumor mongers (us included) for causing such an
uproar in July. Apple has no choice but to deliver at next months
conference. There will be a rovolt if they pull another MWNY 2001.
Nobody in the industry expects Apple to sell many imacs this
christmas, which is too bad. Christmas sales are what most
companies rely on to help finance the comming year. Even with
Apple's ability to stay above water during the recent sinking of
the tech industry, a bad christmas sale will not help their
financial situation. Especially with all the new projects that
Apple is rumored to be working on. But is there a positive to this
of course there is
If Apple has cannibalized
it's own sales this christmas with all the hype that it has created
with it's press releases and lengthenings of keynotes, it can
surely rely on all that saved money being spent on brand new
hardware that it is releasing right after Christmas. What a
January Apple will have! There should be plenty of back orders for
imacs, faster G4s or what ever Apple is planning on releasing this
January. You might even see an increase in sales of the ipod, but
that is another rumor. All in all, do not feel bad for Apple. This
is all part of the big picture that Steve dreamed up many years ago.
