Steve Jobs morphs into Darth Vader

Lightsabre resolves Judas Phone antenna issue

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Vid Those of you who are thoroughly hacked off with the Judas Phone saga and could use some light relief are directed towards the following vid by Taiwanese wags NMA News. There's no English version, but it doesn't really matter:

Lovely. That Steve Jobs has morphed into Darth Vader will come as a relief to Star Wars aficionados, since David Prowse has been banned from attending official fan conventions

Prowse is apparently guilty of “annoying” George Lucas, and will not be darkening the doors of future events. He said: "The only thing I've been told is I've burnt too many bridges between Lucasfilm and myself. Sincere apologies to all my fans who were hoping to meet with me - I shall miss you too."

Well, we can only hope Jobs finds time to wow Star Wars shindigs with his reality distortion field and nifty lightsabre skills. ®
