Sure Apple's going to loose eventually, but that doesn't mean you can't be a winner! After seeing other boobs place side-bets on the next quarterly loss statements, I decided that you deserve better. Something bigger - much bigger. Place your bets for when Apple does the big kackeroo, and you could be rolling in the green stuff when Apple's broke.
As a former investor in Steve Jobs used to say - "here's the deal". Apple can either go out of business, file for bankrupcy, or be bought out. It CAN'T file for bankrupcy protection as a reorganization move. It CAN reorganize under a different brand - meaning if the name Apple isn't used, but Steve Jobs is still there - that's fine. It CAN'T be called something like Apple Software (ala NeXT Software), the name "Apple" must be dead and gone. Just name the month, day, and year that Apple bites it, and you could be a winner! E-mail me your wager, and I'll post it here for everyone to keep tabs on the playing field. Wagers will be posted once the cash is in my hands. Instructions to get that cash to me, will be via e-mail. Sorry I don't do credit cards - and if it's a check, it wont get posted until the check clears. Traveler' checks and money orders are accepted and probably your best bet (ahem).
Now for the disclaimers. Apple employees are out and verbotten. No sense in someone getting their walking papers, and then placing a bet. There will be a 5% service charge, deducted from the wager, for me to maintain the pot, and walk across the street and to deposit it into an account. Don't sweat it. I'd make a whole 5 bucks if I got 100 dollars worth of bets. Whoopie - I could buy a McDonald's Value Meal.
And that's it! I'm opening the contest with my own wager, of 10 dollars, for January 10, 1999. I personally doubt that Apple can survive 2 more lousy fourth quarters and live.
