    CNN is reporting that there are some options issues at Pixar too, this can't be good, as it starts to look like a trend for Steve.

    they may have just found this one too to make it look bad for him.....gates is a powerfull man afterall :eek:)

    there will be problems like this at thousands of corporations, but jobs is a target right now so it fits to look at pixar as well...

    on the other hand, he could just have been caught again, and that would all but end his halo and most likely end apples current high.

    From what I've heard most companies did this back then.

    If you've got a link to a story which contains some detail on these "options issues," please post it.

    The biggest issue Jobs has is that he is a high profile name. A name that a good portion of people will recognize very very easily as opposed to a lot of other execs who although maybe CEOs or CIOs are really just no names to the masses.

    There's an old saying, I don't remember how it goes... But something along the lines of "The only thing people like more than watching someone become a hero is to watch a hero fall"

    Well, one of the first things you really want to do when investigating someone for something is to see if there's a pattern of behavior- they'd be remiss if they didn't look for it.
