    I like both guys! My dad retired after 31.5 years at Ford Motor Co, I drive a 2003 F-150 and they're starting to make some decent vehicles again.

    But I also like Steve too. I don't think I need to expand on why I like Steve on this forum! :cool:

    I did send my vote to Steve in the end.

    I feel conflicted about it as well, I'm a big supporter of Ford, but I thought Steve deserved better th an 5% ;)

    My vote is locked in. Turning ford back to profitability was a herculean effort and one that saved thousands of jobs. How could you not vote for Mulally.

    Just look at the hollow shells of Chrysler and GM to see what could have happened.

    Jobs did a great job with the iPad, but a horrible job with the iPhone 4. While the ip4 is selling like crazy, you cannot deny the design problems of the phone that he over saw. The easily scratched/cracked/shattered rear glass, the antenna issue, the proximity sensor. All problems with the iPhone. We also saw in 2010, android over take the iPhone, so again not something that you would consider overly positive.

    Steve Jobs has been at the top of these kinds of lists for a while now. He's changed the face of tech as we know it.

    No harm in having someone else (who clearly deserves some acclaim) enjoy the limelight. Mulally's done an outstanding job.

    But I'm still a VW guy for the time being. ;)
