Mix: Mercedes-Benz, Steve Jobs, Medion, Apple-AOL

Tony Whitney of Canadian Driver looks at the integrated iPod interface in the 2006 Mercedes-Benz B-Class and says it came out “looking very good indeed.”

Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who topped the Los Angeles Times’ executive pay survey last year, is No. 99 on the new list after his compensation dropped from $74.8 million to $1. However, Jobs still owns 10 million Apple shares worth about $406 million.

Apple is considering to take legal action against Medion AG to prevent the sale of an iPod look-alike MP3 player, Spiegel magazine reported, citing unnamed sources.

AOL and Apple are reportedly in talks to resolve problems with download tracking, which has led to payment issues between the two companies.

Hold on.  Hasn’t Jobs’ salary been $1 since he came back to the company?

Not only has his salary only been $1 since his return but you would think if they started only counting the $1, he would drop off the list completely, not to 99.

That Medion is so ugly. I would be surprized if it sells ten of them.

tombowes: aethetics are not protected.  However, the Click Wheel operation is, as is the specific menu system design that Apple created and employs in their various iPods.

Regarding Jobs: His token annual “salary” may be a buck, but there’s other ways of skinning a cat (or paying, er, um…I mean, “compensating” a CEO).  He may be the head of Apple and Pixar, but he’s still part and parcel with the rest of corporate America, saavy to the ways of the board room.
