Utterly vacuous piece on Steve Jobs
Posted by: davester

This guy couldn't figure out anything to write about so he made some stuff up. I realize that USA Today is not exactly a paragon of fine journalism, but this is absurd.

"And finally, there is Apple's Jobs - tech's celebrity superstar. He seems due. Maybe he'll humiliate a bumbling underling on stage at Macworld, unleashing a torrent of stories saying Jobs is the Lord Voldemort of managers. Or someone will discover malicious spyware hidden deep inside iTunes.

The only sure thing is that society, as if striving for equilibrium, will then knock Jobs as far down as we boosted him up. It's just what we do, no?"

Boy, this whole article looks like "I'm on deadline but have nothing to write about" if ever I saw it.

I like how his predictions of what's going to be big in 2006 come from people who have a large stake in the item they tout.

"Hey, Bill Gates! What's going to be the big thing in 2006?"

"Why, Longhorn, of course!"

Pure crap with Steve Jobs' name attached to help drive readers to it.
