Steve Jobs spent the holiday season prepping his Macworld speech and fighting
that he and the Apple board of directors played it fast and
loose with stock options. Jobs ducked the charges (it was, after all, an Apple
investigation, sorta like Al Franken looking into Hillary Clinton's campaign
finances), and I'm glad.
Even if he was found guilty, I'd pull a Gerry Ford and pardon the poor guy.
Let's face it: Steve Jobs is good for America, and even better for Microsoft.
When Jobs was forced out of Apple by John Scully, the company lost its vision
When the prodigal son returned, Apple was reborn. My only gripe is that Jobs
killed off the Mac clones (imagine if Dell, HP, IBM and Gateway all made Macs).
I don't care if Steve Jobs stole my kid's lunch money -- we still need a strong
Apple to balance the scales and keep Gates & Crew on its toes!
