BOB Predictions TRIBE Predictions
Status: [CLOSED]

Mr. C's teaser regarding Google ("Sorry, I'm all out of electrons, so my big Google story will have to wait for next week, which is still within the scope of my 2007 predictions I might add.")at the end of this week's Apple story, would seem to relate to this prediction regarding Apple's edge network (supplying iTunes and QuickTime content) going from Akamia to Google. Were there any other predictions that the teaser could fit?

I suggest that you listen in on the akamai conference call on 2/7/7 at 4:30 PM. You will find that AAPL has a MULTIYEAR contract w/ Akamai and that if Google were to provide AAPL w/ services instead of Akamai, Akamai loses nothing because Google employs Akamai extensively. According to Marc Cuban (owner of the Dallas Mavericks), "everyone knows that." I suggest you get off your animosity! Conrades is no longer in charge.Pay your bills on time! vince

The reason I think it wouldnt be google is because I know of someone who spoke with Apple on the salesdeal and they work a different Startup that doesnt get much press in the CDN space.

yea...I'm not so sure I would be quoting Mark Cuban as my source on ANYTHING, lol, but you're right about the contract. No offense...I just think the guy is a waste of fresh air. But, I'm going to go with Bob on this one.
