Why are you trying to bring common sense and logic into an apple thread? I know you've been around OCN long enough to know that's futile.

And to the people complaining about Apple getting the publicity out of this over the other companies, think of it from a journalists point of view for a second. Don't you think an article with Apple in the title will get more views than one about IBM, Ebay, etc? They aren't going to give a slightly more accurate title to lose hundreds or thousands of reads.

Wait, I'm bringing logic into an Apple thread, forgot where I was, sorry.

Crap. Sorry. I thought for a minute that this forum would be filled with logical people, since it's a site dedicated to tech based on logic. I guess you and I should just leave the primitives to their devices.

Actually, Jobs is quite a miser according to numerous sources, he hardly donates money to anything. A lot of CEO's pay themselves a salary of $1 to get a tax break, they make their money in stocks etc.

Maybe that's because the iPad would still not have an HDMI out. That's like asking somebody to like your brother in law because that guy started saving hundreds of children even though he beats your sister most nights. The problems people had with them are still there.

Note that every one of those things listed is irrelevant or a way to avoid paying taxes and get publicity.
