For Apple, smaller and cheaper is suddenly better. After years of catering to the high-end market, Apple last Tuesday introduced a US$499 lunchbox-sized computer and a $99 digital music player that is smaller than some packs of chewing gum. "We're really serious about this," Apple co-founder and Chief Executive Steve Jobs said in introducing the new iPod Shuffle music player. Apple already dominates the digital music business. In December, it sold its 10 millionth iPod, Jobs said.

Your comments on the investers is outright misleading. The news of the Mac Mini was laready known and the stock price rose 5 pts the day before - this was nothing more than buy on rumor (they obviously liked the rumor) and sell on news - net zero. Since the stock is now $70+, investers seem to be neutral/positive on the idea.
Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
