Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y As it turns out, the relationship between Apple and Palm is even less amicable than we already thought it to be. Bloomberg got their hands on communications between Ed Colligan, then-CEO of Palm, and Steve Jobs in which Jobs made a proposal in which the two companies would promise to refrain from hiring each other's employees. Colligan, however, rejected the proposal, calling it wrong and "likely illegal".

...uting and Steve Jobs is the boss.

- Never look at the competence.
- Never be seen with competence.
- Don't go to competence places.
- Always being available for Apple is your life not a pastime
- Appointments of Steve Jobs must absolutely be respected.
- Steve Jobs must be treated with respect.
- When asked for any information, the answer must be the truth.
- Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.
- People who can't be part of Apple: anyone who has a close relative in competitors, anyone with a two-timing relative in Apple, anyone who behaves badly and doesn't hold to Steve Jobs values.

Really. Why all this patent and copyright hell is legal these days? Everything is becoming worse, we are entering the Digital Middle Ages as innovation and competence is disappearing.
