Steve Jobs As The Pope: This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.”

April 9th, 2010 by InfectedTube

Jobs, characteristically, did not mince words as he spoke to the assembled, according to a person who was there who could not be named because this person is not authorized by Apple to speak with the press.

On Google: We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them, he says. Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there’s no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.” Audience roars.

Google’s search suggestions are always good for a laugh. Sometimes they reveal the nasty thoughts of your fellow man. Other times, well…who knows:

Ads On The Moon Made By Robots

July 20th, 2009 by InfectedTube

Gizmodo brings us this gem – “Idiots Want Robots to Draw Ads On the Moon’s Surface”

It’s one giant leap for robot-kind. New Shadow Shaping technology creates images on the Moon that can be seen from Earth. Robots are used to create several small ridges in the lunar dust over large areas that capture shadows and shape them to form logos, domains names, memorials or even portraits. Talk about the Man in the Moon! You can even carve your initials in a heart to impress your sweetheart.

The advertising potential is mind-boggling. Never in history have companies been able to penetrate every market on Earth, reach every person on the planet, and touch them at an emotional level only possible with the beauty of the Moon on a starlit night. Twelve billion eyeballs looking at your logo in the sky for several days every month. And since there is no atmosphere on the Moon, the images last for thousands of years.

“Finally dependency on government to travel beyond Earth is over,” says inventor David Kent Jones. “This new commercial incentive will turbo charge space technology development. Shadows are just the beginning; eventually robots will be planting crops on other planets.”

Beginning July 20, 2009, the fortieth anniversary of man’s first step on the Moon, exclusive licensing for this patent pending technology is publicly available. Moon Publicity is accepting bids from accredited investors and companies for 44 lunar regions until October 20, 2009. You could license moon-imaging technology potentially worth a fortune in advertising value for about the cost of an SUV. Minimum bids start as low as $46,000.

A Better New Ad Campaign For Microsoft

July 17th, 2009 by InfectedTube

It should come as no surprise that Apple isn’t a big fan of Microsoft’s “Laptop Hunters” ads, but some may be surprised to learn the Mac maker’s lawyers reportedly called a senior Microsoft executive and demanded the ads be removed.

The topic of the TV ads, which feature prospective buyers comparing the prices and features of Apple laptops and Windows-based laptops, came up at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans on Wednesday. Kevin Turner, Microsoft’s chief operating officer, was at the conference to announce that Microsoft was planning to open its first stores this fall, with at least some of the locations likely to be right near an Apple store.

But the most intriguing part of Turner’s speech was when he recounted a telephone call he says he got from Apple’s legal department demanding that Microsoft remove the ads.

They should have just gone for the jugular:

Wikipedia Founder Caught-Up in Messy Online Breakup With Ex-Fox News Pundit

March 5th, 2008 by InfectedTube


The online encyclopedia Wikipedia was born of a utopian vision: “Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.”

But Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has learned that the Internet is also great for airing dirty laundry. An angry ex-paramour of his is using it to exact payback by posting invective, sharing salacious chat and using eBay to auction off garments that she said he left behind.

The tawdry tale of Wales and former Fox News pundit Rachel Marsden might be summed up by text messagers as TMI – or “too much information.” It has been served up with relish on Valleywag and other Internet sites in recent days.

Fallout includes blog postings from ex-Wikimedia Foundation employee Danny Wool and others that raise allegations, which Wales disputes, that he has improperly used his expense account and influence within Wikipedia.
