do most of the talking, anyway.
) The placement's conspicuous enough to draw attention (for anyone who's really looking), but it still provides an easy avenue of escape.
Those seats don't look terribly comfy, however, so I probably would bolt, too.
The truth here is that the two companies are at the very pinnacle of their respective focus fields, despite attempts at overlap; the sooner the two sides "kiss and make up," the better for everyone. They may not have to like each other, but they can do much more good all around by working well together.
(I don't care what anyone says, I love Steve's "sense of fashion": he looks to be comfortable, and that's all that ever matters. And he's bloody consistent about it!)
I'm a-keepin' that photo.
