    Steve Jobs' Pic

    Can't you get a new picture of Steve Jobs? This one is weird. Or why do you even have to have a picture for every story?

    Interesting poll. I despise the guy as a person, but keep buying his products.

    "Interesting poll. I despise the guy as a person, but keep buying his products."Despise is a pretty strong word. What did Jobs do - rob your liquor store? Rape your daughter? Send soldiers to die in Iraq by lying? Steal a little old lady's purse?

    I would love to see the little emails at MS about Ballmer's rating - like Bush on a good day.

    Not even statistical...

    40,000 / 9,800 is an average of 4 employees a company. Surely this isn't news.
