Ten Years Later, Steve Has Some Loot, Too
It's been way too long since we've made a Pirates
of Silicon Valley
reference here at RCPU. So, with this week marking
the 10th anniversary of Microsoft's big investment in Apple (which happens at
the end of the movie -- not to give it away or anything), we couldn't resist
typing once again fictional Bill Gates' famous words to fictional (but not Fake
) Steve Jobs in the film: "I got the loot, Steve!"
A decade later, though, as one good-if-not-groundbreaking
article points out, Steve's got some loot of his own. It's hard to believe
that it's been 10 years since Wired ran one
of the great covers of all time. And it's hard to believe how things have
changed since then. But we at RCPU sure do love our iPods...well, except for
one nameless editor (not the one writing this), who actually bought a Zune.
