Sony Ericsson said it will unveil a mobile phone next month that will carry the Walkman name. The handset will reportedly be able to play music both MP3 and AAC music file formats.

Melanie Griffith “threw a tantrum” at a Los Angeles-area Apple Store when she was unable to buy a pink iPod mini early last year, according to a Wired News article with stories of other celebrity encounters.

A survey of more than 300 British teenagers showed that while two-thirds could give the exact price of an iPod, three-quarters had no idea how much a pint of milk costs.

Merrill Lynch analyst Steven Milunovich speculates that Apple and Sony could soon form a partnership to produce a number of products together.

haha, the celebrity / apple store article is pretty funny.

i can’t believe Levar Burton threw a fit like that.  sorry Levar, but in my book, Reading Rainbow and the blind guy from Star Trek don’t warrant special celebrity attention.

Has Milunovich ever, in his entire history at Merrill Lynch, ever once said anything negative about Apple?

I was wondering the same thing. Milk is a mild-tasting white beverage, typically extracted from mammals such as cattle, who secrete it to feed their newborn young. Milks are also made from vegetable sources such as coconuts and soybeans. Milk variations include reduced-fat and fat-free (also known as skim) milk, lactose-free milk for people allergic to dairy products, fortified milk with additional nutrients added, flavored milk (most commonly chocolate), and dehydrated milk. Milk can be unsafe to drink if not pasteurized to kill pathogens, or if not refrigerated for safe storage.

1 gallon of milk=3 iTunes songs.  Yes, boys and girls there will be a quiz on this on Friday.
