El Jobso writes again

According to 9to5Mac, a UK user had the temerity to write to RSJ with a question about whether Apple would “support Picasa’s faces and albums in iTunes.” And he got a response.

Jobso: “I almost died”

RSJ and California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger visited Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto Friday, to promote organ donation. The Gov introduced Jobso as “The Steve.”  Quoting Jobso on CNN’s Fortune site: “I was lucky enough to get a liver in time. As a matter of fact, this coming week is my one year anniversary.” (Posted this yesterday afternoon, but the frigtarded code only showed the video in Chrome, not Firefox.) Dear Leader’s remarks begin at the 12:48 mark.

The San Jose Mercury News has a great quote from Ah-nold. Regarding Jobs, the governor said “What I like about Steve is, because he is a wealthy man that helped him get the transplant. But he doesn’t want that — that only wealthy people can get the transplant and have a plane waiting to take him anywhere he needs to go. He wants every human being, if you have no money at all or if you’re the richest person in the world,” he said, “everyone ought to have the right to get a transplant immediately.

See, that’s the kind of man El Jobso is.  Even when he is allegedly ill..he thinks of others.  He just can’t stop giving.

The Agony & Ecstasy of El Jobso

That’s the title of a play coming to the Berkeley Repertory Theater, January of 2011. A fellow named Mike Daisey plays the part (as if that’s possible) of Dear Leader.

In The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, Daisey dives into the epic story of a real-life Willy Wonka whose personal obsessions profoundly affect our everyday lives—and follows the trail to China where millions toil in factories to create iPhones and iPods.

The untold Jobso story?


El Jobso favors hoarding cash

Today was the shareholder meeting, and one impertinent shareholder was allowed to speak to Dear Leader. He wanted to know if some of the surplus cash Apple is sitting on could be doled out to (imagine this) shareholders in the form of a dividend? Jobso says he prefers “holding on to the company’s cash hoard for potential acquisitions and ‘bold’ investments.”

Here’s some more breathless commentary from CNBC. “Jobs…was on stage at Apple headquarters Thursday in his standard uniform of a black turtleneck, blue jeans and wire-rimmed glasses. (Really? -Ed.) He nodded appreciatively in response to shareholders who said they were glad he was back.”

“The Nike of consumer electronics”

Some bitter unstable former member of the Newton team has been whispering to Gizmodo. He/She says El Jobso wanted to turn Apple into the “Nike of consumer electronics” back in 1996.  Gizmodo continues: “This anecdote clearly comes from someone who’s got some serious issues with Apple, and Steve Jobs in particular, whom he calls “one of the most vindictive people I have ever met.” Of course, that comment is totally without merit.  We know that Apple’s CEO is totally about universal peace, love, happiness, and creating a childlike sense of wonder. Sound vindictive to you? Me neither. One jarring item I will mention, though- Jobso wearing Nikes.

The Book of Jobs

The New York Times reports that Dear Leader is actually cooperating on a biography.  The author is reported to be Walter Isaacson, the former managing editor of Time magazine. No comment from The Loop. “Katie Cotton, an Apple spokeswoman, said the company does not comment on rumors.”
