The Big Event
« on: January 27, 2010, 04:55:11 PM »
Woo hooo, this is exciting, can you believe the media surrounding Steve Jobs talk?  This is far more exciting than that guy from Hawaii who's talking tonight in Washington...

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

Yeah it is quite ridiculous, but say what we want to...  But Jobs is a MASTER at manipulating the media and marketing his visions...  

Hyperion could use a Spin-Doctor like Jobs!

@ persia

Hilarious! :)


I confess that I am getting caught up in the hyped excitement... although the rumors circulating that thing thing is essentially just a huge iPhone make me less interested. It's an OSX machine that I'm interested in!

Wow, you need to stop holding your feelings in and just TELL us what you really think!   lol

(And maybe provide some details as to why you feel this way about him.  Not defending him or anything, just interested..)

Is there a reason why this douchebag's choice of clothing gets closer and closer and closer to a priest's cassock every time they trot out some overpriced, under-powered, over-hyped, under-featured toy for the latte and frappuchino set?

Oh, right.  Cult leader.  That look of beatific sternness on his face sort of sets the tone, doesn't it?  Psh.  I'm surprised there isn't a crucifix with him photoshopped on it as the desktop wallpaper on that thing.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

Jobs is no better, and in some ways worse, than Bill Gates.  On a personal and business level.

I've read a lot about Steve Jobs over the years, and as one Commodore Engineer put it:

"There's nothing nasty about Bill Gates, and nothing nice about Steve Jobs"

Read up about it.

But before hyping a product Steve Jobs is also a PITA during the product development phase to get the product perfect to his requirements. Contrary to what some marketeers believe you can't hype a bad product; at least not for long.

Fair enough..  I truly was simply interested and since I know very little about the man I was just looking for your take on him...

Thanks!

(And I will read up on it!  )

Really?  Windows has been hyped pretty well for the last 15 years.
