Apple Why does news like this always come right before I want to go to bed? Steve Jobs has just announced he is stepping down from the CEO position of Apple. He will be succeeded by Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook. Steve Jobs will remain at Apple as chairman of the board and director. This is... Strange.

Too French to give a shit on my side.

Guess that must be something like European culture...

(Well, if we take Poland outside of Europe, that is)

Bah, but can he tell a fuchsia iPad from a pink one? I thought Steve would be replaced by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mom_%28Futurama%29" instead.

Hmmm, if Apple did bring back the rainbow logo along with Tim Cook coming out publicly, they would basically have the LGBT market. On the other hand, if HTC changed their name to THC and name their products White Widow or something, they would basically have the stoner market... Wait, what did I just reveal? :p
