Hey, check it out. They made Pres. Carter into a think different poster child.

That's such a class act!

Hey hippy, why don't you just shut up and go to the hardware rumors section...
having said that, where will the posters be sold? (if at all) I'd love to finnaly have a think different poster on my wall:)

This is really cool. I'm glad that Apple and the International Community are recognizing him.

About 5-7 years ago, Jimmy Carter had come to meet one of the American politicians who was in Japan at that time, and the place where that politician was staying was less than a minute walk from my house. Well, anyways, I was playing with my friends outside, and Jimmy Carter's limousine passed by... and I just waved to him for fun, not expecting anything... but he waved back at me.

:D

He really is a great man. Not too often you see the Pres. getting his hands dirty, building some free housing. Especially at 70-ish. That's a true statesman. He came from a people-of-the-land family though. Wasn't he a peanut farmer before getting involved in politics?

I dig the jeans. Bugle Boy? ;)

I don't suppose we'll be seeing a "Think Different" poster featuring Yasser Arafat next, will we? He did win the "Nobel Peace Prize" in 1994 after all.

IMO, it would have been more prudent and dignified for Carter to turn down the Peace Prize. After Arafat was nominated, the whole thing seemed to loose its valor. IMO, anyway.

thats really cool. im glad apple is recognizing him along with the Nobel Comittee, though the poster honor isnt quite as prestigious. He got no respect during his presidency and took a lot of S%#T from people but he kept supporting his ideals and it has finally paid off.

I have also combined the images from the site (they are split in half) and made an image that looks nice for a desktop background:

it's too bad that the idiots in Norway gave him the Nobel and then basically said it was a comment on G.W.Bush's approach to the possible war in Iraq. It's a backhanded way of saying congrats, oh, and we'll use it to make a political statement by awarding it to ya Jimmy... VERY POOR taste. taints the whole thing.

Jimmy Carter more than deserves the Peace prize. They have every right to use this as an opportunity to make a statement. Jimmy got Egypt and Israel to sign a treaty and make peace. And it seems to still work pretty well. GWB's foreign policy is directly at odds with Jimmy Carter's works, particularly after leaving office. I would love to see Jimmy be the Democratic Candidate for the next presidential election. (IMHO)

that would be fantastic, though its not even a little likely, as bush, for some reason, garners a big approval rating(even though it HAS gone down) maybe people just want a president they can say that theyre smarter than:)

Pres. Carter is a great man and always has been. He's a man of high morals and integrity, which is why he wasn't a strong president. Failure to be a strong president for those reasons, in my book, isn't a failure in the person, but in the system.

It seems it took a deal between the Reagan/Bush campaign, Nicaraguan rebels, and the Iranian government which was the final undoing of Pres. Carter. Imagine that--a Bush in criminal activities! :D

On another note, Gov. Jeb Bush was answering questions with the other candidate and some 19 y.o. asked him how he was going to get Noelle off the crack pipe. Our dear, beloved governor motioned for security to escort the dude out of the room.

I wonder if that is a hidden message by Jobs that he is against a war in the middle-east? Would fit... don't you think?

Actually... yes. Jobs is crafty like that. I wanna Jobs think different poster! It would be so ridiculous and self-serving. I'd buy 10.

As told to me by my one of my old engineering profs:

Carter was a graduate of the Naval Academy, and was educated in the Navy as a Nuclear Engineer. (He was one of Admiral Rickover's boys).

He recently had a submarine named for him. I think it is a Seawolf class boat, though not sure of this.

He was also the man who "gave away" the Panama Canal (as if it really ever belonged to us) when the lease ran out. The conservatives hated him for this.

Whatever his faults, he has certainly earned my respect, and I congratulate him for winning the honor.

Instead of beating up Iraq for oil, wouldn't we be better off "innovating" our way out of the energy corner we are in? It would create new technologies, new jobs and provide a future that 3rd world countries would have a better chance of participating in.

The Iraq conflict is not centered around oil.... If all we wanted from Iraq was oil, all the current administration would have to do would be to lift our sanctions with Iraq. No "beating up" required. No sanctions would mean millions of gallons of sweet, noxious crude oil flowing into the international oil market....

As a side note, I think it was GM/Chrysler that actually had a working hydrogen-fuled vehicle prototype (even though it was a mini-van) that they were making some great progress on... It was in a Car and Driver a few months ago.

Maybe we'll see some usable hydrogen-based vehicles within the next 5 - 8 years or so.

All the big car manufacturers around the world are working on alternatives and are making progress, not only GM or Chrysler. I am sure that in about 10 years nobody wants a "normal" car anymore for daily use. In 20 years at least 50% of all cars in the western countries will run on alternative fuel. That's my prediction...

Actually,

1) Iraq has the second largest known reserves in the world

2) Links to terrorists are weak at best. In fact, as a secular state, Iraq probably has little in common with Islamic terrorists. Recall that Iraq was in a war, fully supported by the US I might add, with then fundamentalist Iran.

3) Militarily, Iraq is very weak. It has been easily controlled by the west. Should inspectors be allowed back in (many reports of american spies in the original group of inspectors) the probability of WMD creation is fairly low.

4) Most of the WMD existing after the war were destroyed by the UN inspectors. There is no evidence of Nuclear capability, and launch capability is limited to, maybe, 20 SCUD missles. Pakistan is surely a more fundamentalist state, and have a significant capability.

5) The "assassination" attempt on George H Bush in Kuwait, may have been a put up job by Kuwaitis. There has never been good evidence otherwise.

6) Saddam Hussein is a brutal dictator of the most secular and best educated (including women) Arab state in the world. His only desire is to remain in power. But, by not abdicating, he controls the oil.

7) The US wants control of Iraqi oil production to prevent an oil shock like the one that occurred in the 70's. The big concern is that Saudi Arabia will go fundamentalist fairly soon, and will use control of oil as a weapon. Recall, that 15 of the terrorists involved in 9/11 were Saudi's.

8) We get 800,000 barrels a day from Iraq as is.

Whatever you think of the evidence, it all comes down to oil.

I recommend buzzflash.com and bushreport.com which reference many newsreports worldwide. If you are conservative, you might not like these, but they tend to be better journalistically than the network news and CNN.

Yeah, and maybe they will call the new car the Hindenberg.
