View Full Version : Jobs to Speak... on CNN

Jul 16, 2001, 01:01 AM
Per MacNN (http://www.macnn.com/news.php?id=8024), Steve Jobs will be on CNN's MoneyLine (http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/moneyline/) (presumably) tonight at 6:30pm EST.

The MoneyLine (http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/moneyline/) page doesn't seem to mention it specifically yet. Perhaps we can get some hints of announcements to come.

If Jobs is on after the quarterly results for Apple are published, which would make it Tuesday or Wednesday evening by my guess, this could be an indicator that Apple will indeed publish good numbers for the quarter.

It's not too hard for me to imagine Steve appearing on MoneyLine to be able to talk about how Apple is doing well in spite of other apparent down turns in the personal computer industry.

I'm probably being an optimist but this seems like another indicator that Apple will post positive results on Tuesday.

Now that would be interesting!

Jobs for inventiveness is like MJ was to basketball (Woz, too)

Jobs as a businessman is like MJ was to baseball, sometimes hitting .300 but usually striking out (but all other Apple CEOs never batted over .200). Apple is a Bay Area institution like the SF Giants, with the most players at the hall of fame but no World Series ring...so much for stupid baseball analogies :)

one more thing...would that make Bill Gates a George Steinbrenner?

Steve will be on Wednesday, following the keynote. Not only does the day make sense for apple (more to talk about), it's also the day Steve will be in NYC (where Lou does the show from), and it's been confirmed from CNN. The site still says 'this week', promoing everyone upcoming in hopes you'll watch each day.
