Jobs started spending much of his time with Kottke and his girlfriend, Elizabeth Holmes, even after he insulted her at their first meeting by grilling her about how much money it would take to get her to have sex with another man. They hitchhiked to the coast together, engaged in the typical dorm raps about the meaning of life, attended the love festivals at the local Hare Krishna temple, and went to the Zen center for free vegetarian meals. 鈥淚t was a lot of fun,鈥?said Kottke, 鈥渂ut also philosophical, and we took Zen very seriously.鈥? CHAPTER VI. A Third Party For Sculley, the problem was that Jobs, when he was no longer in courtship or manipulative mode, was frequently obnoxious, rude, selfish, and nasty to other people. He found Jobs鈥檚 boorish behavior as despicable as Jobs found Sculley鈥檚 lack of passion for product details. Sculley was kind, caring, and polite to a fault. At one point they were planning to meet with Xerox鈥檚 vice chair Bill Glavin, and Sculley begged Jobs to behave. But as soon as they sat down, Jobs told Glavin, 鈥淵ou guys don鈥檛 have any clue what you鈥檙e doing,鈥?and the meeting broke up. 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, but I couldn鈥檛 help myself,鈥?Jobs told Sculley. It was one of many such cases. As Atari鈥檚 Al Alcorn later observed, 鈥淪culley believed in keeping people happy and worrying about relationships. Steve didn鈥檛 give a shit about that. But he did care about the product in a way that Sculley never could, and he was able to avoid having too many bozos working at Apple by insulting anyone who wasn鈥檛 an A player.鈥? The charges against Branscum and Hill were absurd. First, they wholly owned the bank; if they did not impair the banks liquidity, they could take money out of it as long as they paid income taxes on it, and there was no suggestion that they had not done so in this case. As to the second charge, the law that requires a bank to report cash deposits or withdrawals of $10,000 or more is a good one; it permits the government to follow large amounts of dirty money from criminal enterprises like money laundering or drug dealing. The reports filed with the government are checked every three to six months but are not open to the public. As of 1996, there had been two hundred prosecutions for failure to file the reports required by the act, but only twenty of them were for failures to report withdrawals. All of those involved money that was tainted by an illegal enterprise. Until Starr came along, no one had ever been indicted for a negligent failure to report deposits or withdrawals of legitimate funds. 久久大香蕉|亚洲极美女高清视频|国产亚洲视频中文字幕 When Tesler finally showed them what was truly under the hood, the Apple folks were astonished. Atkinson stared at the screen, examining each pixel so closely that Tesler could feel the breath on his neck. Jobs bounced around and waved his arms excitedly. 鈥淗e was hopping around so much I don鈥檛 know how he actually saw most of the demo, but he did, because he kept asking questions,鈥?Tesler recalled. 鈥淗e was the exclamation point for every step I showed.鈥?Jobs kept saying that he couldn鈥檛 believe that Xerox had not commercialized the technology. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e sitting on a gold mine,鈥?he shouted. 鈥淚 can鈥檛 believe Xerox is not taking advantage of this.鈥? By all accounts, bin Laden was poisoned by the conviction that he was in possession of the absolute truth and therefore free to play God by killing innocent people. Since we had been going after his organization for several years, I had known for some time that he was a formidable adversary. After the African slaughter I became intently focused on capturing or killing him and with destroying al Qaeda.
