Speaking of firing people

That friggin traitor Jon Ive almost got it today too. Guess he didn’t think the Jobsmeister would be coming to work on a Saturday so he figured it would be safe to have his Lenovo ThinkPad Reserve Edition delivered to his office. Wrong, sucka. Every package that comes into the building is reported to me — along with every email and phone call, in or out. I flew down to the mail room and got the Lenovo box and delivered it to Jon personally. He’s like, Gulp. He tries to tell me it’s a gift for someone else, and the initials JPI aren’t his. Then he mumbled something about how he just got it to study it and check out the competition, like it’s just some kind of research project. Whatever. I actually did fire him. But he went over my head to Jerry York, and Jerry told him he could stay. I hate when that happens. Jon Ive, I’m watching you.

This makes me sick

Honestly, folks, look. I’m a dude, and just like most dudes, I like chicks. But I am not down with this new trend of exploiting women to sell consumer electronics. Sure, we have hot chicks dancing in our silhouette ads. But that’s different. Anyway, if you want to see the site where the above photo originates, go here. There are others like it, even more sickening, showing women in lingerie posing with iPods and so on. Please know that these photos on T3, whatever that is, are not sanctioned by Apple. I’m posting it here just to let you know about this so you can write to T3 and express your disapproval. I’m just going to keep on posting these whenever I find them in order to shame these exploiters. For shame, T3. Whoever you are.
