Would you bet $1 million that Apple will pull out from third party retailers?

I challenge the current CEO of JB Hi-Fi, Terry Smart, to a $1,000,000 bet that on March 14th 2014 there will not be any Apple hardware products for sale at JB Hi-Fi stores.

That guy will.

The contract for the bet has already been drawn up by my lawyers and can be found here (PDF).

More like insurance than a bet. If Apple doesn't pull he can afford to pay it. If Apple does pull he's gonna need it. Probably to sue Apple.

Love the fact he had his lawyers draw up the 'bet' and post it on the web.

Wrestling lost a great prospect when this guy went into electronics instead of cage-match promotion.

I'm surprised that they're still sold at Walmart. Yet out of 100 phones on display, 75% of the people at the counter want the iPhone box. The average Joe is still trying to figure out why they need a tablet -- or how they would use one.
