Statue Honoring Steve Jobs Destined for Apple Headquarters Unveiled in Belgrade
A bust of Steve Jobs by famed Serbian sculptor Dragan Radenovic was unveiled in Belgrade today, the result of a competition covering more than 10,000 submitted works that will see the statue placed at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino.
The statue unveiled today is a maquette, a sculpture substantially smaller than the final version for demonstration purposes, that features Jobs' head at the top, with a pair of Cyrillic letters, the Latin letter A, and the binary digits one and zero. According to a report in the Serbian press [Google Translate], sketches of the proposed statue were sent to Apple executives, who said they were very interested in the sculpture and liked "the imperfections of his work".
The statue features three letters, including the latin letter A, an older Serbian cyrillic letter similar to E from the Miroslav Gospel, and a cyrillic letter ? at the bottom serving as an anchor for the statue. The sculptor, as translated by a MacRumors reader, described his letter choice as representative of a sort of "magnet".

So... The Cyrillic letters represent cancer and the 01 is just trying to see if we'd accept a nude statue of Jobs?
Why do I have the feeling they're Android users, laughing?

I wouldn't call this a statue in the title, it's a bust w/ decorations on the bottom.
Also "Abe Jobs" to anyone else?
