What are the odds?

By on January 11, 2006

An astute MacInTouch reader pointed out an interesting coincedence…

… on the day that Apple officially announced products using Intel CPU’s, Apple’s stock price closed the day at $80.86. The coincidence is that the Intel CPU “which gave rise to the x86 architecture” was the 8086.

Yeah, that’s really geeky, but really, what are the odds?



  1. On its own, not so good. But given all the numbers that can end up as coincidences every day, it’s likely that something like that would eventually occur.
