For Mac nerds, the sun will come out tomorrow
Steve Jobs will make a big announcement Wednesday and if you have the iPod phone square in your office pool, you're in good shape. But wait. Will we still think it's a big announcement if we learn the phone only holds 25 songs? BusinessWeek re-caps all the other Apple speculation and offers this Jobs-Brain-In-A-Nutshell rundown: "he has long argued against the subscription model, saying consumers want to own rather than rent their music. He doesn't believe people want to watch movies on portable digital players' tiny screens. And he has said Apple can do more for its customers by sticking to its proprietary approach to developing products, rather than spending time getting them to work with less popular products from others."
