    Russian president Dmitry Medvedev got to meet Steve Jobs today. I found these pictures on the Internet and thought I could share them here.

    I never noticed just how much Steve has changed. His hands, face.

    Cool pics! Where'd you find them?

    I wonder if he was video chatting with someone.

    The pictures and the story is on the Russian President's website.

    It turns out that Steve Jobs has also presented Medvedev with an iPhone 4 as a gift.

    I reckon in the last picture that Medvedev is saying: 'Now I can ridicule Obama and his Blackberry'

    That's very nice. The atmosphere is quite informal and friendly. Steve Jobs is an exemplary personality. I'm delighted to see such a warm meeting.

    What you actually should notice, is that, on some pictures, tim cook is all around steve jobs. Could this mean Tim Cook is the one learning how to run apple as next CEO?

    That's a stretch. It's likely because meeting the Russian president is such a big event that they pull out the stops and the executives come along.

    The Russian President was visiting Silicon Valley to promote his country as somewhere safe for foreign investment.

    It would make sense for the COO to be present, since he "is responsible for all of the company's worldwide sales and operations, including end-to-end management of Apple’s supply chain, sales activities, and service and support in all markets and countries."

    Does Medvedev even know english? I know Putin knows a little bit.

    The cameramen in the picture kind of take away the image they are trying to portray through these pictures, though.

    This is why they uncovered a Russian spy ring recently. Medvedev just gave it up for an Iphone. :p They will probably junk some of their nuclear weapons for a new shiny Macbook Pro!

    Meeting a prince of Nigeria is easy. Heck, I have been talking to one via email for a while now. It seems he had a fortune tied up in a bank, and he needs someone to wire him some money so he can pay a few fees to gain access to it. I don't mean to brag, but he is going to give me a cut of this multi-million dollar fortune for wiring him a small amount of money! He is a super nice guy. No, really!

    Anyway, cool pics and interesting story.
