Random Picture of the Day Also

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is a complicated guy. On one hand, he's suing Apple, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, eBay, Staples, Yahoo, AOL, and YouTube for copyright infringement in an arcane suit that Silicon Valley folks have labeled 'Patent Trolling'.

But on the other hand, he announced recently he's giving away "more than half of his estimated $13.5 billion fortune to philanthropy".

So I'm not sure what to make of Paul Allen. Either way, he's the 37th richest guy on Earth, so what gives with the hillbilly teeth?

  1. It's not that complicated. Paul Allen is a dip shit geek who, like Bill Gates, never had an original idea in his life. They ripped other people off for their ideas (as is the case for their back end operating system "DOS."), or blatantly stole them (as is the case with their "Windows" operating system front end).
    Nothing, from applications to operating systems, to web browsers is original.
    It is proof that in America, the best products doesn't always win the market and the nice guys often finish last with the dip shits winning.

    Can you imagine having that kind of money and looking like that?
