Thanks. I can't wait either. It's going to be crazy.

The only thing I can think of is that some function (not tipping over in rough seas?) trumped form in this case. But then I can't think of any other case where Steve preferred function over form.

Ask the Woz... Read Steve Job's "official" biography, it's quite evident in there.

I'm sure it makes you feel good to worship Steve Jobs and not accept his character flaws...

Or he's trolling. Judging by his responses to people here, I'd put good bets he's just being a troll and is laughing at everyone responding at him (or in otherwords, it's useless to argue with him cause all he really wants is to see people get riled up and honestly could care less about what he's arguing. You're better off ignoring him).

I find it kinda hard to feel sorry for him.

I believe I can help.

Think of it being similar to when Max Rockatansky offered to bring the wounded settler back to the safety of the oil rig compound in exchange for a refill of the gas tanks on his Pursuit Special. Alas when Nathan died, Papagallo noted that the contract died with him. Thus not only does he not get the gasoline*, he doesn't even get his car** back!

*The money he thinks he's owed.
**Any respect he might still have had after designing that butt ugly boat.

Starck's best hope is if 3 days ago he saw a tugboat that'll pull that monstrosity out to sea where it can be put to some good use as a practice target for the French Navy.

Why do people think this thing is ugly? I don't think it is.
Yea, I just read about the people benefits of this tax and now I understand that it's a very good thing.

Multi million dollar deal and no contract? Smells fishy to me. I would have to agree that thing is ugly! LOL
