Quick One! My Prediction for Apple Post-Jobs.

I may be wrong but I predict that Apple will still be relevant for at least the next ten years. (If this world lasts that long). They will however not be as valuable...may be relegated to the back, not making too many waves...kinda like, Microsoft, Dell, IBM, etc, after their glory days are over and before they manage to reinvent themselves. Their stock could even go up for a short while...but for different reasons. Probably because of more people buying established technology from a reputable brand...and not because the brand is the go-to brand for what is cool (or needed) any more. There's another company who's rising value is dependent not too much on the super powers of their leader(s) but on the pool of talent they employ (or acquire). Anyone who's read my blog a llittle probably knows what company that is.

Name That Tune!

If, by some freak chance, you remember the instrumental music from the obscure show "Circus Center Ring" (say, for instance, because you grew up in Lagos in the late eighties), you will really appreciate this music list:

1. Feels So Good by Chuck Mangione
2. I Go To Rio by Peter Allen
3. The Hustle by Van McCoy
4. Quando, Quando, Quando by Michael Bublé (or Engelbert Humperdinck, or Pat Boone, or if you really wanna go far, Tony Renis)
5. Main Theme from Star Wars by John Williams
6. and of course, Circus Center Ring's main theme...that is if you can ever find it (I wish I had a prize for whomever is able to remember the lyrics).

I'm sure I've missed out one or two so please call me out ASAP if you have 'em.
