Wow, doubt he is going anywhere. $400 million in stock at current price! Nicely done!

Great move by Apple and good for him. The company has done pretty well under his "interim" leadership

OpenX gets a lot of great press but this my favorite mention so far!!

"The company (Apple) has been working hard to hire qualified candidates in a highly competitive business climate where companies like Dropbox, Facebook, Google, OpenX and Twitter are all growing dramatically and also in need of engineers."

Good job LA. Think the Hollywood riot is about to spark a traffic riot. Seriously, 15 minutes to drive one block!

Wow this sign could have several meanings. Really hoping it is no sitting on escalator.

Sometimes you have an itch that only a moving escalator can scratch...

Another recent OpenX press mention I particularly enjoy (sorry Google)....

"Google's efforts to closely duplicate the business of, for example, Facebook and Twitter in social networking and OpenX in display advertising indicate that Google's definition of "innovation" is often just an attempt to copy others..."

About 200lbs less than him. But otherwise separated at birth. :)

Odd that check-ins have no status. Just purely a check-in. What does everyone think of G+ so far? Looks ok (nothing revolutionary yet) but I sure would be scared if I was a new investor at Facebook at a $75 billion valuation. They could really put a damper on their value over the next few years.

I like what I see so far on Google+. I could never really get into twitter. Also used it mostly for news and current event updates than for posting. I've read a lot of interesting and, dare I say, intelligently constructed posts on here. I really hope the quality stays the same as the masses slowly join.
