Revolutionary ---
Ground Breaking ---
Amazing ---

Another device in search of a need instead of device that actually solves a problem in the portable computing/net book market.

But the sheep will flock to it.

And then find out they have to jailbreak it to get it to do anything.

Maybe in 2011 they'll get cut and paste

But not before iPad 2 is released in 8 months.

And of course there's no way to swap the battery

He doesn't want to alienate the rebel geek culture that swear allegiance to his products and way of life, so he dresses like "them".
(sort of the same reason why Russells Simmons is always in a baseball hat and sneakers even when wearing a suit)

Personally, he dresses like a middle aged I/T Hack buried in the basement level of the I/T back-office.

Awful semi-dirty white sneakers, ill fitting bargain brand jeans, silly black turtle neck. Blechhhh...

I mean my man, you're a gabillionaire - you just bought a LIVER for God's sakes. Polished it up a bit, bruh.

Face it, more often than not, Steve Jobs is pissing in a bottle, slapping very pretty labels on it, and selling it to you at a premium.

Pricing released:
$499 - 16 Gig
$599 - 32 Gig

$100 delta for DOUBLE the storage capacity? Huh? Why even bother making a 16 Gig then?

Or at least pricing it $100 away from one with 100% more memory.
