Dude this wasn't a TMZ picture, it was official PR stuff. I couldn't care less if Steve Jobs actually uses a 486PC running Windows95 at home, at least he sure as hell wouldn't let anyone photograph him using it.
This is disturbing on so many levels. Most important of which, is that this Chairman obviously has no clue just like his buddy CEO. Just rape a company and make off with billions. Get into trouble? Ask the government for bailout or more "quantitative easing" because "demand is weak", "markets are not confident", etc. Heck, whatever happens, they always have their golden parachute anyway.
Sometimes the best answers are the most obvious. This image alone speaks volume of the economic rut the US, UK and Europe are in. The 1% have forgotten that running a company actually involves developing and using their own products, not just shuffling financial paperwork around and sitting on their fat asses on boards collecting millions or billions.
If you've read the Steve bio one of the first things he did when he came back to Apple was clean out the garbage board of directors.
