Obviously this is a parady on real live current news about Apple Computer. But you couldn’t make this sh*t up, really!
So I came up with the title:
Apple doesn’t like Clones, but it looks like they need to clone Steve Jobs.
* You’ve already seen my blog entry on the PC World article regarding the Mac Cloner company court battle. Now you hear that CEO Steve Jobs of Apple Computer may go on extended leave of absence for medical reasons. And… there seems to be concern about a transition of power. But not only executive power, but brain power and other capabilities that only Steve Jobs may have.
So they might need to ummmm, like, download his brain to an iPod or an ummm, like, an iBrain or… something (?) Or they’ll need to clone him, no? But if they do this ummmm his, like, Operating Person or Operating System [or something] (the stuff from his brain is copyrighted right?) would have to be run only on Apple Hardware! So would the clone actually be a clone? or an Apple Original Hardware?
P.S. Hey! The iBrain was my idea. An iPod-like device that can be used to store a backup of human brain intelligence content. Just because I (or anybody?) don’t know how to make one (yet?) – doesn’t mean I can’t cash in on the licensing rights. Right?
Critics Question Apple Succession Plans
January 14, 2009: 09:20 PM ET
SAN FRANCISCO -(Dow Jones)- Apple Inc. (AAPL) now has the rare chance to conduct a test-run of its succession plans for the day when Chief Executive Steve Jobs no longer can run the company.
But so far, shareholders and corporate succession experts don’t care for what’s happening.
Because of his extraordinary role at the company, Apple already faces big challenges should it have to replace a tech icon like Jobs, who announced Wednesday he’s taking a leave of absence from Apple until the summer to battle a hormone imbalance that’s more complex than believed just a week ago.
Yet Apple’s handling of the situation so far hasn’t won many admirers. Some Apple watchers are already raising questions about what’s really behind the jarring swing in sentiment about the nature of Jobs’ treatment in such a short period of time. Last week, Jobs, who is a pancreatic cancer survivor, told Apple employees he was undergoing simple treatment, and he will stay on the job. A week later, Jobs disclosed that his treatments are now much more complex than expected, and require he take an extended leave of absence.
