Muammar Gaddafi Killed [Pic + Video]

Muammar Gaddafi, the ex rebellious king of Libya, has now been killed and his bloodied body stripped and displayed around the world from a cellphone video, reports Reuters.

“We confirm that all the evils, plus Gaddafi, have vanished from this beloved country,” Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said in Tripoli as the body was delivered, a prize of war, to Misrata, the city whose siege and suffering at the hands of Gaddafi’s forces made it a symbol of the rebel cause.

“It’s time to start a new Libya, a united Libya,” Jibril added. “One people, one future.”

A formal declaration of liberation, that will set the clock ticking on a timeline to elections, would be made by Friday.

Video: Eric Schmidt blabs about Ballmer, Jobs

I was on the board until I couldn’t stand the board anymore.

Ex-Apple man and current Google CEO, Eric Schmidt came down clean on why he left Apple, though that’s the only thing he said on the issue, without elaborating on it.

Eric was on stage at Salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2011 conference with CEO Marc Benioff at San Francisco’s Moscone West center, Apple’s preferred venue for product launches. Apart from speaking of his Apple exit, he went on to appreciate Steve Jobs’ contribution to the field of technology, attracting applauds from the crowd.

What Steve has done at Apple is certainly the best performance of a CEO for over fifty years, maybe a hundred years. But not only did he do it once, he did it twice. We’ve all benefited from the tremendous innovation at Apple. And I say this as a very proud former board member at Apple.

The Life and Career of Steve Jobs (video)

Its been an emotional 36 hours or so since iconic ex-Apple CEO Steve Jobs resigned from the post, handing over the reigns to well-groomed and expected successor, ex-COO Tim Cook. While the change was rather expected owing to the continued health problems Jobs had, and that the new CEO Tim Cook said there won’t be any drastic changes in Apple and they’ll continue to work as they used to, the mere designation of Jobs as CEO of Apple was assuring enough of Apple’s hunger to succeed even further. Of course, we do trust Tim and know that Apple is still the biggest tech firm in the world, but Jobs was the one to start it all and it will be difficult to imagine him not in the thick of things any more. On this note we’d like to share with you “The life and career of Steve Jobs” in an amusing Taiwanese CGI video.

The video depicts how Steve Jobs’ life would have been like in an alternate universe, one filled with the former CEO dancing with Toy Story characters. Probably trying to see the lighter side of this emotional moment.

Steve Jobs will continue with Apple as Chairman of the board now and will also remain active with Disney.
