    Now it places the lotion in the basket. John Heilemann, who writes mostly about politics but likes to drop a turd into the tech punchbowl every now and again, wrote a fairly interesting profile of the man we call “Jobs.” We all know the story — nerd makes computer, nerd sells computer, jocks steal computer, nerd steals computer back.
