Apple Online Store“They are two of Silicon Valley’s most famous founders: Jobs created the world’s must-have gadgets, Zuckerberg the world’s most popular social networking service,” Jessica Guynn blogs for The Los Angeles Times. “These days they are often mentioned in the same breath.”

MacDailyNews Take: By idiots with absolutely no sense of perspective.

Guynn continues, “Now apparently the two also recently broke bread. Apparently Jobs invited Zuckerberg for dinner at his house to talk about Ping two weeks ago. That’s when a tipster spotted them on a stroll in Palo Alto.”

  1. Steve: “Mark, I’d like to have you over for dinner, 7 ish”

    Dweb: ” Tacos?.”

    Steve: “Ah, no. Garden salad with fresh salmon.”

    Dweb:”Oh. Heh, are we friends now?. You can call me “The Zuckster”.

    Steve:”Gee, thanks”. To self: “You little pos, I should buy you out and make you the janitor”.

  2. Ping can be fun and useful. Musician Ryuichi Sakamoto uses it, to the joy of his fans. Through his threads he was able to learn about and correct a marketing blunder whereby his new album was missing two tunes in the USA. He sorted it out with Apple such that at least the iTunes Store version is complete.

    If more musicians could participate, the service could be great. For now, it is in the infant stage.
