    This article is full of it. Jobs only makes $1 a year. He bought a soda last year, and some gum the year before, so his net worth is only $4.34

    Justice League

    GORDYmac: Let's just say that if all the guys on the list got together and decided to become some evil empire, they'd be pretty hard to stop.

    Meanwhile,

    Millions of talented, smart people who just happened not to be born at a precise moment in history or to well-connected parents, struggle to make ends meet. How many of these billionaires realize "there but for the grace of [___insert favorite god type here______] go I"?

    Justice League

    Excuse me, but didn't the article say that at least two of them made their money from the evil empire?

    And as every Mac Addict knows, that empire is pretty darn hard to stop!

    Good causes

    The Saudi Prince aside, many of these folks started with very little and built their own empires. And Gates contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to charitable causes every year. So does Jobs.

    So stop all the whining!
