Super Wednesday

with 2 comments

Wow, tomorrow is gonna be some Wednesday.

First, the World Economic Forum kicks off in Davos, Switzerland. Once again this year, my tickets seem to have gotten lost in the mail.

Second, President Obama is slated to make his first State of the Union speech before Congress and the American people.

But we all know what the really big story is for this particular Wednesday: Steve Jobs’ introduction of the new Apple Tablet computer tablet thingamajiggy that I don’t think Apple has ever even confirmed existed, much less what its feature/functions are.

Once again, the brilliance of the no talky Apple marketing machine speaks volumes without ever even so much as a head nod.

Me, I don’t need another Apple device.  But, I’ll likely end up buying one, anyway.

Maybe.

Possibly.

Almost most assuredly.

Can I go ahead and pre-order one now?

(Full disclosure: I bought some Apple stock recently.  I’m banking on this tablet sucker taking their stock sky high, and with the profits I hope to make off the sale of the stock, I’m going to turn around and buy an Apple tablet.)

That means all the rest of you have to go out and buy one first so that you send their stock into the stratosphere so that I can make enough to buy one for myself.

Now, I don’t own many shares, so that means you all really need to go out and buy two tablets just to give me a safe margin.

Sound like a plan?

Of course, with Apple’s quarterly earnings announced yesterday against a record sale of Macs in a single quarter, we’re well on our way.

I just pray the new tablet isn’t the second coming of the Newton.
