Poetic justice

Wouldn't it be lovely to see the the Microsoft barracuda devoured by the Google whale? OK, I know whales don't do that kind of thing, but whales are kind of the good guys as well.

"Will the freedom loving "hippies" still love him?"

January 2005 – Pixar senior executives (which include Steve Jobs) draft written terms for a no-poach agreement and send them to Lucasfilm
May 2005 – Apple and Adobe make agreements
2006 – Apple and Google make agreements shortly after Eric Schmidt joined Apple’s board of directors
April 2007 – Apple and Pixar make agreements
June and September 2007 – Google enters into agreements with Intuit and Intel that are identical to the agreements between Apple and Google, Apple and Adobe, and Apple and Pixar

Additionally, Steve Jobs personally contacted Palm’s CEO Edward T. Colligan to propose an unlawful agreement, writing “We must do whatever we can” to stop competitive recruiting efforts between the companies.” Colligan declined Jobs’ offer, writing “Your proposal that we agree that neither company will hire the other’s employees, regardless of the individual’s desires, is not only wrong, it is likely illegal.”

And Palm was bought by HP and is not a major playa any more.

Jobs hated Adobe for some reason yet had no trouble dealing with them here. The guy truyly worshipped money.

Jobs had no scruples. Period.
