Apple's move with boot camp  made a double appearance in the New York  
Times, one in today's editorial (!) page   (http://www.nytimes.com/ 
2006/04/07/opinion/07fri4.html?_r=1&oref=slogin) and one yesterday  
under technology http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/06/technology/ 
06apple.html. In both articles the gist is that with this move Apple  
is trying to attract PC users into its fold. A 10% jump in Apple's  
stock seems to say that the market agrees.
