I installed Ubuntu on a Google Nexus 7 tablet so you don't have to.

Taking bets on how long it takes the jury to come to a decision in Apple v. Samsung...

Oddly enough, Yahoo's choice for its new CEO sounds almost ... sensible. It's enough to make you suspect foul play, isn't it? But as my pal Chris Null points out, whatever is going on, Google Employee #20 is going to encounter some serious culture shock at Yahoo.

So I just finished Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography. I gotta say, in some ways Steve Jobs was an admirable character, and in a lotta ways he was a complete weirdo asshole. I don't think I could ever work for him. If I tried, I'd probably walk away thinking he was scum of the lowest order. With a guy like Steve Ballmer, at least he advertises himself as a greedy, contemptuous toad. Steve Jobs actually seemed to think he was the Bodhisattva of the tech industry, when in reality he was a narcissistic jerk who treated everybody around him like shit, even as he fed off their talent. Interesting guy.

Wait... didn't San Francisco just cut a sweetheart tax deal with this company, because it was going to, like, create a zillion jobs and reinvigorate downtown, etc., etc.?
