Apple Well, this is interesting, and, I must say, rather surprising: the New York Post is reporting that the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission are looking into launching an antitrust probe into Apple's policies. You'd expect this to be about iTunes, but that's just the thing: it's about the Adobe-Apple spat. Update: Since I'm not familiar with the entire US media landscape, I was unaware the New York Post is considered less than reputable. Still, Reuters has confirmed the Post's report, so maybe it's true after all.

Have to be careful with Mr Jobs

Steves distortion field is a powerful thing. If you let him talk to you it's already too late.

If he could convince Apple devs after coming back from NeXT venture that their almost ready OS sucks and should be replaced, he can convince one court he's not breaking any antitrust laws

Someone's been watching recent Lost episodes!

You're right though, Steve Jobs is perhaps the most charismatic and appealing CEO I've ever heard and seen. I think it's mostly that he really does love his company and its products. Apple is his life, period.

Though I don't care for his stance on Theora and keeping the Web open, I still respect him for his dedication to Apple.

What the hell are you rambling on about?

Seeing as I was there and you weren't, Steve was the last person brought in on merger talks.

The talks were weeks in the making and both CEOs were last in discussion.

Apple's CTO and a few systems engineers and sales engineers at NeXT started the merger idea.
