A small error, but one with such horrendous consequences.

Yeah, my first thought was how am I meant to recycle a Rice Krispies box with a plastic screen attached. No wonder Kyoto never stood a chance.

OTOH looking forward to a cheap ebook reader that will run a month on a single charge.

if (!strcmp(directorName,"Uwe Boll"))

It says these things run off batteries...so when the battery dies...i dont think your going to sell that product anymore.
I think what's more worrying is the enormous amount of tiny batteries that will be thrown into landfills if/when this stuff ever takes off.

I can imagine looking down the aisle of the grocery store and seeing hundreds of advertisements flashing and changing...oh god the horror.

if (strcmp(directorName,"Uwe Boll"))
return BOX_OFFICE_POISON;

So everyone BUT Uwe Boll is box office poison?

"When kids see flashing pictures on cereal boxes we don't expect them to just ask for the product, but to say, 'I want it,'"
Excellent. Expect that to do a lot of good for the obesity problems - when little Johnny's Big Mac comes with an episode of Spongebob Shitpants to enjoy while he eats.

Also expect it to be heavily regulated at first, especially in Europe. Expect Sweden to ban it outright - they're really strong on their advertising to kids there...

But e-paper should kick ass 10-15 years after it takes off.

Yeah, but an apple fansite saying Steve Jobs should of won because of this or that isn't any surprise.

It's politics gone to computers!

1. CEO Dec 15, 2005, 11:25 Zathrus
 
The survey was not for "Most Admired CEO", but "Most Admired CEO/Chairman". Bill Gates is still Chairman of the Board, so he's still eligible for the title.

My pick would've been Buffett.
