Comment BRAVO (Score 1) 77

Good to know there are smart people out there. SUN went downhill a number of years ago when McNealy was still jaw flapping about how badly Microsoft sucked and how the network was the computer and we'd make the world a better place. Then CPU failures helped crash a few thousand businesses...the dotcom bust came and well the rest is over $300,000 in 2002 money stock options down the tubes. Oracle should have let SUN squander and then bought up the pieces at a garage sale. Good to see these guys jump ship and make sure that JRuby lives on after the fact. I wish them the best of luck and admire them for their chutzpah. Michael Murdock, CEO (Formerly SUN's WESTERN AREA AIC for StarCat/StarKitty) 1998-2002

Comment Apple doesn't have to replace Jobs (Score 1) 405

People are missing they point. You're not replacing Steve. Nobody can. What you're doing is putting in someone who can run and lead Apple. The person Steve Jobs is, is unique. The next person coming in when that time comes will not have shoes or sneakers to fill. They'll be tasked with keeping a company on track and keeping the employees, the clients and the investors happy. If they happen to have a spark of creativity in them that's a good thing. If they happen to be able to inspire people to a greater extension of their inner greateness..that's a good thing. But to actually try and replace Steve...they broke that mold at 1 fitting and he's pretty freaking unique. Michael
