Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty’s predictions for the stock value of Apple shares read like listening to the weather report. She says there’s one chance in 4 Apple stock could pass $325/share and range between $325 and $435, but if the Google Android platform takes off, Apple shares might as well drop as low as $150.

In a more common and closer to home situation: the weather for tomorrow will be dry, but if our most optimistic dreams don’t become reality it will rain.

Michael Arrington on the topic of online privacy.

Back in 2006 people still had a notion of privacy online, particularly around contact information. Today those walls are crumbling. People share information today without blinking that they never would have considered sharing in the past. Things that bother us today probably won’t matter much this time next year.

It might seem a lost battle in the mindset of people, but the more information is readily available the more people will become aware of sharing less. Expect big battles with law makers in countries such as Germany.

Greg Knauss in a great comparison. Does this make Yankees fan Gruber the Scoble of the Indie bloggers?

Two-thousand was the last time the Yankees managed to win a championship. And it was awfully close to the last time that that Microsoft managed to produce a version of Windows that anybody cared about. And, hey, both the Yankees and Microsoft have long histories of dominating their professions, and of using that dominance to run up huge payrolls with — let’s be honest here — a near-decade of lackluster results.

The New York Yankees are Like Microsoft
