  1. Is it a flash video?

    Damn. Guess I won’t be watching that one.

    Can’t view it on my iPhone, computer at work blocks streaming video, and laptop is down.

  2. Cavuto is a good guy. He’s perfect for his audience. “Well heeled” business types, the people who create jobs and wealth, as opposed to the clueless ex-hippies fawning over CNN mush.

    Had Fusion-IO been on CNN all the questions would have been about Steve’s brief moment on Dancing with the Stars and what happened to his relationship Kathy Griffin.

  3. Cavuto is such a horrible interviewer. What a winy-ass pantload. Nice amateur question (billionaire). This is like watching Chris Farley interview people on SNL except watching (listening to) Cavuto is infinitely more painful.

  4. Welcome to the libertarian fold, Woz. It’s great to have you with us. It was rocky for a while after the economy cratered, but that’s life–it’s never fair, and government coercion cannot make it fair. Only liars and fools tell you otherwise (okay, and hopey dreamers too).

  5. What about “life will never be fair” precludes us from trying to make it more fair, or rather, as fair as possible? And what is your basis for excluding government as a possible means towards this end?

  6. <<the people who create jobs and wealth>>

    You mean the people who, drive wages down, export jobs to other countries, and hoard wealth via unethical and sometimes illegal means. I’ll take the CNN “ex-hippies” any day…you know, liberals, like Steve Jobs.

    Hmmmmm…. Apple products are made overseas, Apple hoards lot’s of cash, no camera in current iPad to encourage sales of 2G (is that ethical?) and I betcha the janitor doesn’t make much money cleaning the toilets.

    Liberals and conservatives, capitalists and socialists, they are all the same, aren’t they? They are all greedy little people wanting power and those that dont want power are whinners.

    BTW, businesses dont drive down wages, too many uneducated hippies do.

    “Actually, no that’s unions you’re speaking of.”

    Yeah. The whole tech support and CS industry has been moved because of the unions. I’ve worked in both, for huge companies that outsourced their shops from top to bottom. Not one of them has been a union shop. I haven’t worked at a company that even had a union for over 15 years. I wonder what you think you’re talking about. Should I just ask Rush?
