+ - Apple witohut Jobs?

Submitted by CDPatten
CDPatten (907182) writes "The internet is buzzing with speculation that Steve Jobs may step down over reports that he profited $7.5 million in stock options by falsifying an executive board meeting. The financial times has a good overview of the unfolding story.

From the Article:

"Steve Jobs, chief executive of Apple Computer, was handed 7.5m stock options in 2001 without the required authorization from the company's board of directors, according to people familiar with the matter.

Records that purported to show a full board meeting had taken place to approve Mr Jobs' remuneration, as required by Apple's procedures, were later falsified. These are now among the pieces of evidence being weighed by the Securities and Exchange Commission as it decides whether to pursue a case against the company or any individuals over the affair, according to these people.""

+ - Virgin deflowered by Wikipedia

lee writes "Virgin Unite, the charitable arm of Virgin Group, is matching one for one all donations to Wikimedia Foundation for a 24 hour period. When this period began, a link to Virgin Unite was placed in the site notice on all Wikimedia projects. A mere twelve (12) minutes later their site was down for the count due to overwhelming traffic. As of now the site notice is no longer pointing directly to the Virgin Unite site, but instead redirects to an article on the Wikimedia Foundation wiki. One Wikipedia editor blogged this here."
