this is certainly not the first time I've cited this, but it's a quote well worth revisiting:

"The aide said that guys like me were 'in what we call the reality-based community,' which he defined as people who 'believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.' I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. 'That's not the way the world really works anymore,' he continued. 'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'"

Think Secret - Manhattan Apple store to be first 24/7 location - Don't have time to dig up the link, but combine this article with previous legal fights about who owns that glass cube in front of the new store and I think you get a good picture of just how Apple just might stumble and fall over its iPod dollars fuelled hubris...

"Ford had one of the more memorable commercials for their new Escape hybrid vehicle, starring Kermit The Frog. Competitor GM purchased the word 'Kermit' to promote their own hybrid car line, essentially getting all of the benefits of having a Super Bowl ad, with none of the hassles."

the worst part of it though is that Kermit, who used to ride a nice fixed gear, is now on a mountain bike, and from looks of it about to switch to a freakin SUV. Selling out is pretty much taken for granted nowadays, but man that's a long fall...
