"I visited the Apple campus. But that's all I'm allowed to say."

Nnnn

Above and below, a T-shirt from the Apple Company Store (open to the public) at Apple headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, where it will cost you $17.

The store's website says, "We are the only place in the world that sells Apple logo t-shirts, caps and accessories."

Not quite true: I'm pretty certain you can find such gear — new — for sale all over New York City.

Granted, it's counterfeit, but hey, facts are facts.

I first learned of the existence of this T-shirt in the early pages of Adam Lashinsky's new book, "Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired—And Secretive—Company Really Works," which volume I'm enjoying immensely: it's a good read on the Kindle Cloud Reader on my 27-inch iMac while running 5mph on the treadmill.

Not great, mind you, like Walter Isaacson's magisterial "Steve Jobs," which I stretched out to the tune of about six weeks of running while reading, but good nonetheless.

Maybe it's just the subject — Apple — that makes it interesting; could well be.

My fanboy colors are showing.

Heh! This sounds about right...usually NDAs go away, but for some reason, Apple's never expire.

That said, I refused to sign one before visiting...they still wanted me to be there. I didn't get to see the really cool stuff though (even though I knew what it was).

Next visit to SF, I'll have to pick up a few...

I listened to Isaacson's biography while running on the treadmill - 5mph is a tad fast for me to turn pages on a paper book - albeit not so fast that I can't read my Kindle at that pace.

I'm waiting for Apple stock to drop a bit more - I cashed out the other morning when the stock was at its record high - and I'm just letting the rest of the profit-takers drive the price down before I jump back in.
