A Tale of Three Steves
Opinion: Wozniak looks south; Jobs loses his bid; Ballmer slams the iPhone."Live from New York, its Saturday Night," howled the Don Pardo-like Puss, assuming the buzz that Apple legend Steve Wozniak and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin are planning to drive a hydrogen-powered Hummer to the South Pole had to be a late-night TV skit. Alas, the Baron of Babble was bemused to find that truth is stranger than fiction and that the duo are indeed seeking permission to use the Trans-Antarctic Highway, a road usually reserved for researchers, for a road trip to promote the use of alternative fuels. More information on whats being called the Zero South expedition, planned for December, can be found at drivearoundtheworld.org.

Jobs has been battling a historic preservation society, Uphold Our Heritage, for years for the right to tear down the Jackling House, a Spanish Colonial Revival-style home built in 1926, which he bought in 1984. Jobs has wanted to build a new home on the property but has been consistently blocked by the group. The pal told the Furry One to check out friendsofthejacklinghouse.org for more details.
