Apple "My neighbor, Steve Jobs, has been in the news lately. The talk of the town is the recent announcement he will be stepping aside to let other seeds grow at Apple. The business press, the general press, the blogosphere, and just about everybody else has waxed poetic about the 'greatest CEO of all time' saying that this 'boy wonder' has shaped the very nature of our lives with his genius. It's all true, but here in Palo Alto, Steve Jobs isn't just an icon, he's also the guy who lives down the street." I like stories that put a human being behind a public figure. As much as I dislike Apple's recent policies, Jobs is still just a regular person, like all of us. It's easy to forget that when you're sitting behind a glass desk 4000 kilometres away.

I saw Steve as I was running in our neighborhood. He was deep in conversation with a younger version of himself — his very own mini-me in jeans, black tee-shirt, and wire-rimmed glasses

Does he ever wear anything else?

I'm pretty sure he wouldn't waste brain power on petty things such as 'hmmm, what to wear this morning?' ;)

and does it even matter? come on, it's not you who's wearing this outfit. Why do you even care? why are you talking such stupid things? It's an "ad personam" thing and it is totally stupid. You didn't even say anything corresponding to the subject of this news.

Someone could also say that you look ridiculous in this red thing on your head and a pony tail in the back of it.
Do you like it? I'm sure you do.
