For school itself, I was one of the few exchange students in Manchester to take the full six courses for the term. I only need four to graduate. I take them because I enjoy them. If you are in a degree that you do not want to be in, get out! Go and change it. If it takes you 5,6,7 years to get through the degree, so be it. At least it will be a great 5,6,7 years doing something you love!
Good idea or not? It might be out of Apple’s core competencies, but their main product is the iPhone now, so strengthening has to be a goal. “Apple can handle its own graphics, video, and audio output as well optimize for power control - a huge concern with devices like the iPhone.” The biggest problem with the G1 Android is that runs out of batteries (according to Twit).

But then again, they know more details than me… more just thinking about strategy.
