A cowboy sitting in a saloon one Saturday night recognized an elderly man standing at the bar—a man who once had the reputation of being the fastest gun in the West. The young cowboy went over, bought him a drink and told him the story of his great ambition—to be the greatest gunshot in the world. “Think you might give me a tip?”
The old man looked him up and down and said, “Well, for one thing you’re wearing your gun too high. Tie the holster a little lower down on your leg.” The cowboy asked, “Will that make me a better gunfighter?”

The old man said “Sure will.” So the young man did the lash-up with his holster, whipped out his 44 and shot the bow-tie off the piano player. “Hoo boy,” he said. “You got any more tips for me?”

“Yep,” said the old man. “Cut a notch out of your holster where the hammer hits it. That’ll give you a smoother draw.” The cowpoke said, “Will that make me a better gunfighter?”

“It sure will,” said the old-timer. The young man took out his knife, cut the notch, stood up, drew his gun in a blur, and then shot a cuff link off the piano player. “Wow!” exclaimed the cowboy. “I’m learning something here. You got any more tips?”

The old man pointed to a large can in a corner of the saloon. “See that axle grease over there? Coat your gun with it.” The cowboy went over and rubbed some of the grease on the barrel of his gun.

“No, no…,” said the old man. “I mean smear it all over the gun, handle and all.” The cowboy asked, “Will that make me a better gunfighter?

“No,” said the old-timer, “but when Wyatt Earp gets done playing the piano, he’s gonna shove that gun up your rear, and it won’t hurt as much.”

Even without out CEO Steve Jobs, Apple continues to shine.

Even without out CEO Steve Jobs, Apple continues to shine.

Many people thought—including me—that Steve Jobs’ temporary departure from Apple for health issues would be a blow to Apple’s performance.  We were dead wrong.  Things are business as usual inside the innovative behemoth.  The proof is in the pudding.

Apple now wants every citizen of the world to own an iPhone. That is their latest business strategy.  To obtain this ambitious goal, Apple is gearing up to trim the price of the iPhone to $99.   According to a report by RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky, Apple is expected to debut a $99 iPhone, as well as an iPhone 3G with updated performance, sometime in June or July.  Also expected is a 3G iPhone performance upgrade (performance, features, form factor).

It’s anticipated that this new strategy will reap positive results.  An entry level iPhone could increase Apple’s overall iPhone unit sales by 25 percent to 69 percent and bump up its slice of the smartphone market from an estimated 12 percent to 14-19  percent, the report notes.

It’s interesting to point out that Steve Jobs should be back at Apple’s helm in June, just about when the  new iPhone version is expected to be launched.  Will he be the dazzling showman again?  Let’s wait and see.  Good Day.
