Contest Update!

The entries for Pimp My Apple Executive are flowing in! We already have more than enough to award all the prizes!

A few things I’d like to mention about the contest:

I’ve noticed that Mail is dropping a lot of the email entries into the Junk folder. Perhaps it’s the use of the word “pimp.” At any rate, I’m replying to everyone who sent something so if you haven’t received a reply, please send your file again.

Unless, of course, you’re using Mail and my reply is getting dumped into your Junk folder. In which case we could go around like this for days.


Maybe you shouldn’t mention the name of the contest in the email.

Some people have asked if there’s a limit on how many entries you can make. There is no limit. Please feel free to submit as many entries as you like.

As several people have noted in the comments, Apple’s terms of use for the downloadable images of its executives indicated that you may not modify the image at all. I’m sorry. I didn’t realize you were all a bunch of sissies who were afraid that Apple legal would call your mommies.


We’re not afraid of the man, but if you are, here are some links to help get you started:

Steve Jobs

Phil Schiller

Jon Rubinstein

Avie Tevanian

Ron Johnson

Finally, we’re thrilled to announce our panel of judges!

  • Myself, John Moltz, editor in chief of Crazy Apple Rumors Site
  • An Apple employee who would prefer to remain nameless
  • Noted technology writer Glenn Fleishman
  • Shawn King, host of Your Mac Life

Frankly, that’s far better than you people deserve. It’s certainly more than we deserve.

Remember, you’ve got one week from midnight tonight! Get cracking!
