Does 'Sarah Hanson' exist? The story of this 19-year-old entrepreneur may be a hoax. MAY BE a hoax? Regardless, the idea is somewhat brilliant. Too bad it's soiled now. I think it would have been a great way for someone to get a jump start on life.

If you ask me, he never really got a fair shake. He's out.

Apple No Longer the Underdog

Apple: Unfortunately, no longer the underdog Remember when Mac users were the fringe? The holdouts, the misfits, the ADB plugs in the USB holes? Don’t look now, but everyone’s found our party.
