The essential guide to IT transformation

It's come as quite a surprise to Vulture Central, but we've just found out that El Reg Strategy Boutique operative Philip Mitchell has been planning the assassination of Steve Jobs.

The proof comes in the form of this teaser pic of Jobs we use to illustrate our insights into the wonderful world of Apple.

According to one irate Yank, it's clear evidence of Phil's aim to have the Cupertino main man taken out:

I don't know what kind of message your pathetic grab bag of bitchin is trying to send to people --- but that pic of Steve Jobs with the big red X through it looks suspiciously to me like you're trying to incite somebody to kill Steve Jobs.

I may be wrong, maybe you're just trying to incite somebody to hurt him a little, but in this country (US), that kind of photo is an indication you want someone injured. You are not doing yourselves -- or Steve Jobs any good by running that photo.

How would you feel, Mr. Mitchell, if your face was posted on the internet with a big red X through it? Please be so kind as to remove it -- just to make me happy.

Thanks,

John

Crikey, that's very cross hairs, and no messing. ®
