    Ah ha! Now the shoe is on the other foot! Supply and demand strikes again!

    Just curious. Why are you so hostile to people who are just enjoying a normal discourse about this subject? It makes you seem as though you think you are superior to everyone here. All the gratuitous insults about education and intelligence about people you really don't know as living, breathing human beings. I really think you are better than that.



    It's sad. Some people LIVE to put down others. As if insisting you're smarter actually makes it true.



    Here we have a perfectly good discussion of perspective and 'shopping' and somebody has to spoil it.

    My comments may have been incorrect. OK.

    I'm willing to eat a bit of humble pie when needed and maybe learn something but now I won't even consider anything dias wrote.

    It's called the iPizza.

    Don't ask me how it started.

    You know, the more I examine the original photo (not the marked up one), I am thinking we just don't have enough information. What I saw as the smoking gun, an anomalous shadow of one of a continuous line of telephone poles behind the shooter might well be something else. It just doesn't articulate properly with the shadows of the phone lines on the sidewalk. It could be one of those arms that come out from a perpendicular pole to hold a stop light over an intersection behind the shooter--we just don't know. I am no longer convinced this is a fake. This has nothing to do with the validity of my or Luis' arguments, just a lack of data. Just for fun I am going to try a Google street view to see what I can learn. Peace.

    If anything flour+water should be PRAISED for not letting a billionaire walk in and get a table ahead of someone, forcing everybody else to wait even longer. I have not eaten here yet but I already admire their business practices. Sounds like a humbling moment for Steve that he probably needed and hasn't had in a long time!

    Well, you know how Jobs designed the original Mac?



    He wanted it to look like a Cuisinart.



    And we already had a "pizza box" Mac.

    You know, when you really think about it, it doesn't really matter. But for those who just have to know, they should do as you suggest and either try to recreate the shot on location or find someone who can. I know, let's call the Mythbusters, they're in the bay area.

    Good idea! They already proved the different angles of shadows on the Moon Landing pictures.... this should be cake for them.

    Good point, I totally forgot about the faked moon landing episode.

    Perhaps this is why he lost ll that weight, if only he had a personal assistant to make restaurant reservations for him.





    Seriously, why is this news?

    I believe this story was carried on the network WGAF.

    fake.



    As they state in the article, the shadow is lined up incorrectly. Should correspond with the pole and the couple walking in the shadow of the pole. The wires appear differently because they are horizontal and not vertical like the pole and people.

    If I had his money I?d pay people to put pants on me. And I wouldn?t be walking around in public. That seems so pedestrian.



    Seriously, this is news? If he threw a fit and demanded a table because he?s Steve Jobs and got turned away or if he bought the restaurant and then fired the guy that turned him away, that would be news.

    Four pages of comments over the least interesting thing that's ever happened to Steve Jobs?



    Wow...

    You guys are arguing about the shadows on the ground? Have you ever seen a Star Wars movie? The shadows line up in each scene, but that doesn't prove anything in the scene is "real".

    You mean the part about walking around being pedestrian?
