Latte my arse
that's an organic decaff mocha with soy milk Jobs has in front of him
The on-again, off-again relationship of Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt may be back on again. According to a Friday afternoon post on Gizmodo, the Apple and Google CEOs were spotted at a Palo Alto, California coffee shop - out front on the sidewalk, mind you - chatting over coffee. The site's tipster even snapped photos, it would …
It is clear that they have decided to go their separate ways. Apple will buy Europe, China and the rest of Asia while Google will takeover all of the Americas. (Africa is already owned by the 419 lords.) No one gives a damn about Australia.
Please be such to welcome your new overlords.
"Whatever that cryptic comment might mean, the entire tête-à-tête seems bizarre in the extreme. Two love-'em-or-hate-'em billionaire tech gods, in broad daylight, sipping what one can only presume to be caffè lattes at a sidewalk table outside a coffee shop"
The author has obviously never spent much time in downtown Palo Alto ... The most shocking thing about this picture is (to me, anyway), that Steve is actually wearing shoes & socks. When I had a house in the Johnson Park neighborhood of Palo Alto, I often ran across Jobs when walking the dawgs. He was always barefoot. As was I ... old-timer North-West Palo Alto rolls that way ;-)
 If it's really Jobs, of course. Which I doubt.
how long they sat there for drinking coffee before they were told that someone had noticed them and took a photograph that was likely to make its way into the media? it must have been a while, Jobs is sat their with his legs platted, obviously needing a iPiss...
One thing is obvious is that it was some sort of publicity stunt. Jobs and apple never do any thing without first making sure it looks exactly how they want it to look.
Keep an eye apple/google.. somthing is going on...
This looks like this week's LOST chapter, with a conversation between Jacob and the man in black, where this one tells Jacob (again) in an apparently friendly chat that he hates him, among other things. Could Jobs be the man in black and Schmidt Jacob? Stay tuned for an amazing conclusion to this exciting events next week, same day, same time, same channel. http://www.theregister.co.uk/Design/graphics/icons/comment/it_angle_32.png
Steve Jobs' jeans exactly match the fashion I'd expect of a 'typical American' who works most of the year, with only 1 or 2 weeks holiday, although many are paid for their second weeks holiday.
My image of a balding semi-obese middle aged man in a very large polo shirt tucked into cheap $5 walmart jeans with bright white trainers is almost there. We just need to get Steve some more pies, and a pair or bright white sneakers :D
I hope that Jobs is discussing joining Shmidth's "exit," or whatever it really is, from China. By the way, I hope that Googlehas as much balls to exit from the US Patriot Act; It replaces the US Constitution.
I have not found one single individual, both on the Left and the Right, that favors it. Only the branches of gub'mnt's like it. This tells us that we the people were not cousulted, hence it's a top-down, dictatorial or kingly, imposition on the people.
Should they be discussing the US Patriot Act, I hope that this is the beginning of big corpo's reorientation away from politically and socially oppressive policies, and toward doing what is right for the people.
one looks comfy and the other quite awkward.
Steve : why on earth did you embark in the cell phone business so unprepared ?
Eric : we were prepared Steve I think, we just didn't realize our appeal is weak compared to yours
Paris : you want a brownie with your coffee sirs? they're hot
... my money's on a fence around China.
Of course it could be just a demonstration that they are not just one huge blood-sucking ego, but two huge blood-sucking egos. Anybody see any Crosses ? Smell garlic ? Tempting fate with the sunshine, but the reflection in the window was a nice subtle low-key touch. Probably took Pixnar & DreamWorks a month to do that.
Do they connect with his sweater, like a body stocking? Does he wear garters to prevent his socks from falling down?
Why is he so sock obsessed. He almost never wears sandals at press conferences, and conferences. Perhaps he is ashamed of his talon like nails? Maybe he lost them all when he let his athlete's foot get really bad.
My speculation is rife.
Just two guys chilling out, drinking some coffee (is it a tall glass of something on Steve's side? And it seems he have TWO cups of crapuccino or whatever he's drinking), without several bodyguards and no bystanders/patrons gawking in awe or asking money or throwing pies. All in a low-resolution, blurred photo.
And I am quite sure I see Elvis on the reflection of one of the glass windows.
Anyone dressed in oh so cutting edge expensive designer crap isn't rich and influential enough not to give a flying f*** what everyone else thinks.
Steve and Eric are rich and influential enough not to give a flying f*** what major Western Governments think, let alone the likes of us down here at "sticky things they found on the sole of their trainers" level.
