Craving NYC: So anyway, I heard this Apple rumor...

A major WTF in this week's video blog.

Well, um, I'd like to treat you to some interesting footage that I took on Friday afternoon while hashing over a bunch of random Apple rumors that had surfaced throughout the course of the week. It was kind of driving me nuts. iTunes subscriptions? Leopard delays? The Beatles? I mean, I've got stake in this. I'm a potential iPod buyer, as you'll see in the video. I'd like to be confident when I purchase a new iPod that Jobsy won't just roll out the next generation of 'em the next day. (Knowing my luck, that'll happen.)

I wanted to see what people thought, so I asked around the office, and as it turns out, I was pretty much the only one who was being driven nuts by all the Apple rumors. Nobody wanted to talk about it; I mean, Dave Katzmaier wanted to talk about scarab beetles instead. I guess Friday afternoons aren't the best times to get people to agree to on-the-spot video blog interviews. Then I was off to my BuyYourFriendADrink coverage, and I haven't heard a single good Apple rumor since.

So I suppose I'm just a tremendous nerd. Perhaps Steve Jobs really doesn't run the world as I'd suspected he did. Or perhaps I just need to get a life.
