Apple’s share price an in-joke for Intelites | News.blog | CNET News.com

In a bit of unintended humor, Wall Street closed Apple’s stock Tuesday, the day the company unveiled its first Intel processor-based computers at Macworld, at $80.86.

That may mean nothing to the average person, but techies will no doubt catch the accidental reference to Intel’s 8086, the 1978 processor that spawned the x86 architecture that PC users are so familiar with.

Now, it’s pretty unlikely that Wall Street was able to manipulate Apple’s share price, given the thousands upon thousands of people who no doubt bought and sold the stock Tuesday. But it’s little coincidences like this that make technies and geeks sit up and take notice. Or at least I and the friend who pointed this out to me did.
