Apple CEO Steve Jobs met with US President Barak Obama alongside other tech leaders such as Google's Eric Schmidt and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg last night, as scheduled. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said:

“The president specifically discussed his proposals to invest in research and development and expand incentives for companies to grow and hire.”

Any guesses what the cheers was for?

So much money at that table. I hope they tipped well.

Limegrntaln says:

They didn't need too. That's at one of those guys house. It was on the news here.

sting7k says:

At least Steve put a jacket on to meet the president. I hope he didn't have his 20 year old jeans on with it.

ricb says:

So i missed the memo that foxconn moved to the states and are providing jobs?

Jonathan Seals says:

The cheers probably happened after Barack said: "Gentlemen, let's take over the world."

busted says:

"thank God for the Chinese"

pcdsim says:

pause...
Everyone looks around, confused
Somebody: "Wait, I thought we were doing that already."

AmiPro says:

Can somebody name who is sitting on the table from left to right.

Jonathan Modisett says:

I'll try.
Left to Right starting with Barack, Steve Jobs, Ceo of Cisco (John Chambers maybe), No Face Lady (Sorry), Eric Schmidt, SunnyVale Internet (Peter Blackmore), Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (not sure but John Doerr), Ceo of Oracle (Lawrence Ellison), Netflix (Reed Hastings), CEO of Intel (Paul Otellini he's supposed to be there not sure if this is him), CEO of Yahoo (Carol Bartz, New Twitter CEO (Dick Costolo), Can't see, CEO of Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg).

Jon says:

Note the Schmidt - Jobs buffer! Love it!
In all seriousness this is pretty smart of Obama. The tech sector is one of a few sectors where the United States is still a leader, and these guys are some of the smartest and most innovative people in the world. Very smart move, indeed.

Intoxicateme says:

Loony cool aide drinker I see

slalomskie says:

Im third from the left facing the president. I don't know those other poor renegade b**tards.

mrNotiq says:

They're discussing how to integrate RFID chips with information from Facebook..it's up to Apple to integrate the chips with nueral technology to create computers that literally are in our heads..and it's gonna be up to Google to present it nicely to the public as the New Age of Aquarius approaches.
...at least that's what I think ;)
CHEERS! ;D

KMPhotographer says:

"Here's to a beautiful Ballmer-less night!"

Kei says:

Ballmer's under the table and his head will poke up under the salad bowl occasionally.

Chip Chipperson says:

I dislike Obama's policies, but I'm glad to see this meeting.

Jonathan Modisett says:

So Many Questions:
1)Why isn't Larry Page here?(unless he is next to Zuckerberg)
2)But Eric Schmidt, why, did he get ousted (sorta)?
3)And Carol Bartz? Obama does know Yahoo is in serious trouble?
Well I guess it is the Government who expects them to be up-to-date.

Intoxicateme says:

The Not Caption:
As Obama sits around the table with leaders of tech industry he asks, "Can a person with an Associate Degree get one of those high paying jobs? Your margins are high enough to afford it." Before Carol Bartz could respond with a "F#%k You" Steve Jobs interrupts asking Zuckerberg to "pass the liver".

d munch says:

the toast went like this... "Hail Ceasar"

James says:

So. Steve Jobs has only 7 weeks of life? Or this is a speculation?

Andrew Flores says:

He looks virtually the same as always! Those reports on 6 weeks to live are wack!

TX Mike says:

"...so help me kick off my 2012 re-election campaign by donating a good chunk of that tax cut for the wealthy that I renewed for you."

Redshirt says:

Yes, Steve looks pretty much the same in that picture (maybe a little more filled out in the face actually).

Dante says:

Odd... They already had coffee, and mist glasses are empty, some have water in it.
Would it be the cheap credo of "yes we can" or "God bless Emerica"

Kei says:

Well, it IS Obama - he would defiantly refuse to compliment AMERICA - Emerica sounds about right.
