    ran across this in my stock news for the morning...

    Shares of Synaptics (SYNA: news, chart, profile) fell 2.6 percent to $25.21 in pre-market trading on Instinet after both Bear Stearns and First Albany Capital downgraded the technology company on expectations it may lose Apple Computer (AAPL: news, chart, profile) as a customer. Bear Stearns analyst Andrew Neff cut his view to "peer perform" from "outperform," saying Apple Computer looks set to replace the iPod clickwheel, currently supplied by Synaptics and which allows the user to browse and select music on the player, with its own in-house produced interface technology. First Albany Capital lowered its view to "neutral" from "buy."

    the small size was an added bonus.
