And citizens of Planet Earth:

No matter what your political views, those who serve in the military put themselves in harms way for sake of others - a very brave, selfless and noble act. Xerox sponsors a site at which you can very easily and at no cost send a personal encouragement to an unspecified member of the US military serving in the Middle East. To do so seems to me an act of support and comfort for those engaged in this hazardous endeavor.

Bravo Xerox. Let's say thanks. [Applause]

FWIW

GG__________________________I can not think of any company that has caused the demise of so many trees, as Xerox and now they go and redeam themselves, go figure. Yes it is a well thought out and planned goodwill gesture. Bravo, Xerox, Bravo.

They did a lot of good, though. Remember PARC?

The birthplace of the Mac after Jobs' visit and subsequent piracy, if there be any truth in those tales.

GG_________________________Well it depends (not the underwear) on whos story you believe, Woz claims Apple paid a bunch of stock options to Xerox some others claim that Steve & Steve out right stole it. However one story I heard was that it was outlined on a napkin and Steve and Steve walked out with that.
