Well done IBM

Apologies to my Mac friends but I grow tired of the unearned superiority complex Steve Jobs' followers seem to generate from non-accomplishments such as the Macbook Air.

Yes, but does it come with a cool bumper sticker to put on your Hybrid?

Classic stuffwhitepeoplelike, Apple products.

I wonder if IBM/Lenovo had a huge conference to announce its inception, with the CEO walking out on stage with a laser light show and fog machines, bathing in the adulation of unending applause, like Steve Jobs did with the iPhone. Oh, that was annoying...a class I took, the teacher made us watch that for some unknown reason.

Have you ever seen "Pirates of Silicon Valley"? It was a made for TV movie by TNT I think but it was very entertaining. It covers the beginnings of both Microsoft and Apple and they did a great job of portraying both Gates and Jobs as well as Wozniak. I have it on DVD if you haven't seen it yet.
