  • How much is a Photo of you worth?

    July 25, 2007

    For myself, with the model release included, nothing.

  • More on the iPhone...

    July 25, 2007

    We tend to agree with GigaOm that even though the iPhone roll-out didn't meet Wall Street's lofty expectations, it shouldn't have impacted the stock as much as it did today (down -6.3%).
