Jobs Not Off the Hook Yet

When I suggested that Steve Jobs be let off the hook for possible financial improprieties, a bunch of you just about ripped my fool head off. You might get your wish to see Jobs in jeopardy. After being cleared by Apple (did they put Leslie Nielsen on this case?) the feds decided to check up on the charges themselves.

While some might view Apple as some kind of touchy-feely company, it is, after all, built to make money. In fact, its platform is more proprietary than Redmond's because it is completely tied to hardware (bring back the Mac clones!).
