CUPERTINO, Calif.--The presence of one of the world's pre-eminent environmentalists at Apple's shareholder meeting Thursday was the subject of much of the morning's pointed discussion.
Gore was seated in the first row, along with his six fellow board members, in Apple's Town Hall auditorium as several stockholders took turns either bashing or praising his high-profile views on climate change.
A longtime Apple shareholder stood at the microphone and urged against Gore's re-election to the board. Gore "has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted," Sheldon said, referring to Gore's views on global warming. "If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn't need to be re-elected."

Yes, I’m in Drums.
It all balances out - Al Gore was a really big hit among the international collection of 5 or 6 thousand geeks gathered in Las Vegas for the IBM customer/partner event this week.

FWIW, I use a MacBook Pro and use a portable Pioneer Inno XM satellite radio. My wife has a Gateway laptop and a 2nd Generation iPod. The Gateway is the only source of frustration these days.
Ok - I’ll bite;)
Every man should have an eleven knob - or a twelve even;)
I’m in the Lehigh Valley, and I’m surprised to say I never heard of Drums, which is north of us. Right now we’re having a break in the snow, but it’s supposed to pick up again. How much did you get?
I send Steve Jobs an article on Globull Warming once a month (to all his various email addresses), and remind him that he is supporting a fraud and that he has a charlatan on his BOD.
Unfortunately, there is not a reasonable competitor to Apple for the quality of products they produce.
The one thing I give Algore credit for is not totally going off the deep end. He has had that “crazy” look in his eyes since before his election lose.
I was getting ready to post the exact same thing when I saw your post. I hereby join you in that resolution.
Ouch. That had to hurt. Bravo for speaking truth to this scam artist Gore.
winter wonderland :-)
I feel like Jack Torrance.
LOL, this is priceless!
Steve Jobs: “We are sitting on our cash because we have no idea what the crazy Socialists who are running the country will do in the future.”
Nah, it won’t be bad. I just like to let Swordmaker know when I happen to notice a mac-interested thread before he does (not very often). He is a wealth of mac-related info, and has helped me thru my several mac purchases. Your post just looked like a good one on which to ping him...
