Briefly: iTunes Movie Store still on top; fake iPhones, iPods worth millions seized; Jobs' Jackling

    I was under the impression s' was reserved for indicating plural possession. People always think that you use s' when the person's name ends in an "s", but that is a big mistake.

    It can be used that way if the person is really famous.

    ie: Jesus' disciples ... is ok to use; so Jobs' house is also ok since his name is so famous.

    At least I think that is what we determined in an earlier thread on the topic.

    Agreed. This old house is as ugly and poorly laid out as I have seen. Mansion? No, it's just big, yet the inside seems cramped and dark. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's worth saving. That is, unless you're into celebrating examples of the worst architecture of the 20th century.

    The property deserves better and I'm sure Steve will see to that...

    I hope Steve is well soon and can have fun building his new home.

    I like that pic of the counterfeit goods displayed. Why would someone make a fake 3rd gen iPod Nano?

    Is that anything like "stupidity by lack of education"?

    WhoTF came up with a misnomer like that?

    Oh, my bad... it's the preservationists - for the good of humanity, right?

    WAIT!!!!!!!!!! maybe somebody REALLY famous took a crap there once...

    nuke it before the black mold spreads

The losers in this case should have to pay Jobs and the city the full ammount of all legal and court expenses plus interest plus compensate Steve for the lack of use of his property for ten years, and finally trebble damages (3 times the sum of the other items).

    The east coast is actually more litigious. Not more f-ed up, but more litigious for sure. The weather is too good here for people to get hugely pissed off.

    Must be a London thing. Here, eastern Europeans are mostly math programmers. Being involved somewhat in that myself, I am fully sorted for Euro 2012 -- no shortage of friends in Kiev.
