A flattering photo.

I'm so sorry to do this and poison our paradise, but is this not the epitomy of an irritated geeky alien Mr. Burns?







Also, isn't that the 'Myriad' font? (I am so scared that I know that..)

    I now have no need to unveil my "ridiculous photo of Bill Gates" for today. This one takes the cake. Haha. I like the comparisson to Smithers, especially since Bill has a ton of Homers working on his products.

    Bill, you're worth 50 BIL, get some posture for goodness sakes.



    In the end, all you have is your health.

    To be fair, this picture looks like the young Mr. Burns.



    I knew Bill was Chairman of the Board, but Chief Software Architect?

    Close, but it looks like it is actually Frutiger. He may not have stolen Steve's typeface, but you may notice that he did steal Steve's water bottle!

    funny, the Chief Software Architect at MS has probably never written a single line of code past basic, could he spell C++?

    Bill could code. Steve couldn't.

    Woz was/is a hardware guy, Jobs just did the business stuff. Jobs is not, and never was an engineer. Bill spent two years at Harvard, did a little bit of coding, and then moved to business. So, really, Bill isn't a great engineer either.



    Woz was good though. The Apple I is really elegant.

    Imagine if Woz never left, or came back now...



    Man Jobs however cool is a dick look at this story. No wonder Woz left.

    Woz was hardware. Mike Markkula was the early money.

    Steve was/is a "vision" guy. Plus he's got the whole RDF thing going for him.



    and that photo still doesn't measure up to 98's video1.7MB QT Mov

    He has been out of the trade for a while now. While he'd probably be a good department manager/head, I don't know how useful he'd be on the hardware design side at this point. If he had never left, I don't know how much different it would be. maybe we'd have missed that whole era of bloated macs. . . I don't know.

    Don't believe a lot of that.

    Obviously (and I'm not just saying this because it's from rotten.com. Honestly.. Seriously I'm not.. What?! You're crazy.. You're all crazy..)

    this guy has some deep seeded hatred of Jobs, and (anyone here read Jobs' biography?) Eh, anyway I did, and although some of what the rotten.com guy says is true, he seems to exaggerate it ten fold..

    Although Jobs is (supposedly) a annarchical power hungry tyrant, he definetely knows what he's doing with computers..
