perhaps notebooks with SSD's?
If they equip them with 64 or 128GB of Flash memory, it'd probably need quite an amount (as opposed to 4-32GB per Digital Audio player).

You would have to think that the bulk of the MP3/MP4 players have already been manufactured anticipating a big release week. Im inclined to think that its something else they are working on.

When it comes to Apple, I was thinking "For the Alliance" would've been more appropriate.



Horde would never use Apple.

It seems to me that Apple Inc is trying to exchange dollar into flash modules expecting the US dollar to depreciate in near future. They will be selling iPods and other devices for a long time, and they are betting inflating dollar will cause stagnation and reduce purchasing power world wide.

Very smart move.

c'mon crApple just used the insider info about that beating/suicide/alleged homicide to bend tiwanese arms into forking o\/er assets. haha.

but seriously, i hate crApple, and I won't buy any of their products, all their doing is dri\/ing up the cost of nand based de\/ices for the rest of the market. If it happens that they're using the chips too... so be it, it ser\/es two purposes.

@Starryman

These companies (all of them in the article) have already been convicted and fined for collusion 2-3 years ago. I would absolutely not be surprised if they were doing it again. I have to agree... that sounds like BS to raise prices.
