I actually was going to predict that, but at the last minute, some jerk from Utica swept in and outbid me. Motorola had better-than-expected third-quarter profits, but industry analysts are worried about long-term prospects, because, in about five years, we'll all just be plugged into the giant iPod in the sky. Coming in 2010: iPod vs. Predator! Wachovia announced a 32% rise in third-quarter profits, largely based upon its new, totally reasonable, $1 million ATM fee. Kraft Foods had low third-quarter profit because of price cuts on cheese and coffee. Cheese and coffee? Sounds like collusion between Green Bay Packer fans and the city of Seattle. Saks reported huge losses this week at its Saks Fifth Avenue division. The dinosaur is caught in the tar pits of progress.

In a related story, Delphi's chairman announced that his salary would be reduced to only $1. His $3 million signing bonus ... not so much.
