Steve Jobs

Hologram??

Tim Cook Doesn't Exactly Deny It

First Tupac ... then Eazy-E ... now there's talk Steve Jobs could be the very next HOLOGRAM to appear at a major public event -- and Apple CEO Tim Cook ain't exactly putting the rumors to bed.

Cook was in D.C. yesterday ... where the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations grilled him like a cheeseburger over allegations Apple's ducking billions of dollars in taxes.

FYI -- Cook told the politicians, "We pay all the taxes we owe — every single dollar."

But AFTER the hearing, we asked Tim the question that really matters -- ARE WE GETTING A VIRTUAL STEVE JOBS AT THE NEXT BIG APPLE EVENT??

I imagine at some point in the future holograms will be common. In fact, it might be cool if you could push a button on a gravestone and a hologram appeared of the person who had passed away and he or she said a few last words. Might be very comforting to the people who cared about that person. Question is, what name will they give it?

When will people at Apple and Apple fans go on with their lives? If they keep thinking that Jobs was some kind of God or something they will never get live in the present. Jobs died like millions of others have over the years. It was a loss like any other. But move on people.

You could have asked him why Apple allows virtual slave labor in their China factories. You could have asked them about making young women work 10 - 12 hours a day, six days a week for months at a time, while living twelve women to a "dorm room". You could have asked about factory complexes with razor wire fences around them. You could have asked him so many real questions.
.
Instead you asked him about holograms . . . do you think he even has any idea what you're talking about? Tim Cook was given 378 MILLION DOLLARS worth of Apple stock in 201, stock that is now worth over A HALF BILLION DOLLARS - do you think he actually bothers himself with the fact a couple of dead rappers are going to be made into holograms and shown at some rap festival? The man had no idea what you were talking about and said the first thing to come into his mind to just answer a meaningless question.
.
And does Harvey know his people at TMZ are deleting messages that they don't like now? Really, if you are going to publish meaningless stories and throw the word EXCLUSIVE on the photo, you should be prepared to get dissed.

Talk about desperation. Innovation died at Apple when Jobs did and I hate to tell them, but holograms can't come up with new ideas.

Everyone just needs to relax...    

Does TMZ think they're being funny or remotely entertaining with crap like this? The guy asking the questions just sounds like a jackass.

"Doesn't exactly deny it", you say?? LOL! I think he was just being kind to the TMZ troll, where I'm sure he'd prefer to say, "Don't waste my time, you bloody moron".

Steve Jobs already has a "real life" hologram. It's called Tim Cook. Look at how much they look alike. That's why they chose him, coz it sure wasn't for his brains. Did you hear this moron yesterday before the Senate Subcommittee? Cook said: "I'm personally an honest person." Ha ha ha. Like that makes up for the billions of dollars Apple has hiding in Ireland. Cook is telling the truth like Al Michaels. Michaels tried to flee the DUI check point, even though he knew he'd get caught and charged with DUI and trying to flee. It was to let his boyfriend jump out of the car and hide in the ditch.
