“California governor Jerry Brown declared that Sunday, October 16th would be Steve Jobs Day for the state,” Electronista reports.

“While strictly for observance and not time off, it would give the late Apple co-founder a treatment normally reserved for non-corporate heroes,” Electronista reports. “The day coincides with a private memorial at Stanford and may be synchronized.”

        1. There is no proof that fewer guns means less violence. Texas is loosening their gun law’s and it also has not proven that it has caused more violence. At this point…it is inconclusive.

          1. I guess that’s why the US have the highest count of murder using guns. More than 30,000 dead each and every year only due to guns in the hand of citizens.

            More than 500,000 times each year have guns been used during robberies.

            According to the FBI one third (33%) of the acts of criminal violence are carried out using weapons.

            70% of all murders have carried out using guns.

            You see : Allowing everyone to have one or more guns has a HUGE negative effect. It’s simply INSANE that 150 years after the Wild West era, carrying guns has not been outlawed. No ordinary person NEEDS a private gun. (licensed hunters excepted). The argument “I want to protect myself” is pure bullshit.

    Jesus people lets just agree to keep the stupid political comments out of mdn.com. Libs, don’t post in rush limbaugh threads, reds, don’t post in al gore threads.

    the forum will be a much more tolerable place without it

  2. It’s always funny to read people bicker about politics on MDN or anywhere for that matter when really…The republicans steal your money and the democrats spend it…..pick your poison.
