This week it’s Edward Shepard, writing for Don who is back in the US, but currently away in Nevada celebrating his 42nd wedding anniversary. The remarkable thing about Don and Grace’s marriage isn’t its duration, but its health. I mean, they’ve been together for the equivalent of a geologic epoch, but you’d think they’re still dating. I’m glad to report that they’re having a nice time in the desert. Don will be back and writing next week.
This was a huge week in Apple news. On Monday, Apple released its fourth quarter results, which came in above all expectations and truly rocked Wall Street.

Next week will be big for Small Dog Electronics. On Monday, Kali and I will be at the Vermont 3.0 Innovation Jam.
