Why couldn't it have been Coca-Cola?

The irony would be harder to miss if a upper level management member of Apple left to take the CEO position at Pepsi (ie, the President of Apple Europe). :eek:

This guy's article was fine until his last sentence.

It's just too bad the values of Steve Jobs in 2003 have moved so far from those of Steve Jobs in 1983.

What's with the ad hominem attacks at Jobs? Apple is now somehow a bad company for teaming up with Pepsi on the promotion? Just don't drink the junk if you don't like it!

Totally. Steve's a better man for not trying to impose his vegan diet on others.

business is business. you can't impose your personal prefrences on other anyway... so what did people expect Jobs to do? it's an awesome deal they've done with Pepsi.
