Went out for sushi and when I came back, a new Macbook had been released, along with a nifty (but poorly named) wireless multi-touch mouse!

White plastic unibody, built-in 7 hour battery, 13.3″ screen, multi-touch glass trackpad, $999.

What interesting timing. A NYTimes article just came out today about Apple’s wicked sales gains in the last quarter. I’m convinced this company lives in its own universe outside of the recession.

Apple managed to surprise optimistic investors, posting a 47 percent increase in profit in the fourth quarter and handily beating Wall Street’s estimates.
