by CogX (Send e-mail to Editor)

We haven't heard from our source CogX for a while, but he has sent us some startling information. It seems that he has uncovered Steve Jobs' Top 10 (mostly rejected) feature requests for his new Gulfstream V. Without further ado:

Steve Jobs's Top 10 (Mostly Rejected) Feature Requests For His New Gulfstream V:

10) A translucent fuselage.

9) Mac OS X Server Rack

8) Fans replaced with natural convection ventilation (e.g. "lots of little holes") to reduce noise.

7) MacOS 9, your airliner Co-Pilot.

6) Replacement of the flight stick with a round mouse.

5) No floppy drive (DONE!)

4) A handle

3) Under 6 pounds and a 6 hour battery life.

2) Fully AppleScriptable!

and the #1 rejected feature request...

1) Absolutely no Windows!

You can find more information on Steve Jobs' compensation package in our coverage.

The Mac Observer Spin: This is too rich. Thanks to CogX for the great Top 10 List!
