    Hey Paul, do you have Smaht-Pahk in your car?

    Man, Paul is really brutal in this podcast.

    He had me wince a number of times.

    Take for example where he says, Gates and Jobs were both assholes who deserve each other. That's a mind blowing statement.

    Sadly what Paul doesn't realise is that for most of us, the reputation of Steve Jobs was pop culture, we are clueless about the side of Bill Gates Paul alludes to.

    I am not saying he is wrong. I might even be the only one here who hasn't heard the stories. I feel like the time sinofsky was fired and both Paul and MJ were incoherent, mumbling and giggling all through the windows weekly podcast. They stopped short of singing, "ding song the witch is dead". But as a listener, I was clueless as to what sinofsky had done.

    Paul, either write the book or a blog post detailing the Bill Gates of the early Microsoft. Was he really as..... eccentric as Steve Jobs?

      Well. As I said, you either respect these people or you actually learned what they were all about. Their roles in history are assured either way.

    John D Rockefeller gave away tons of money in the end to try to repair image, but he was just as bad.
