Hmm, question is if they haven't launched by then and I'm selling them pre-launch, can I sell enough of them at an inflated-enough price to cover my lack of a job that will result from selling them then, if they haven't been released???

...

Cheers, Dave.

Bring a case of them. I'll help you sell them at Ipod Touch prices, then I'll find you another job.

Oh, I'm not saying some people won't find it funny. It is a little unprofessional, in my opinion. Apple seems to be the only company who would do this, and get away with it.

Nope, although being Australian means I have a problem with anything to do with peanut butter that isn't on toast in the morning.

Cheers, Dave.

@Dave: Are you as anxious for the official release of the ZuneHD as we are? Or since you already have one maybe it's already "old" to you? Just curious.

Nope, didn't abandon it - just don't have it much. I didn't have a lot of it when I was in Australia anyhow. I like it - just was never raised on it as a staple.

Definitely. This is the kind of device I've been waiting to unleash against the competition.

Cheers, Dave.

Actually you can.... although it is technically illegal to ad folate to foods there is no ban on Vegemite. It is still purchasable at several imported food stores, as it should be since Kraft foods (US company) makes it.
