A job well done, but we need someone to do the job now
With reference to the editorial To keep it in Apple-pie order (Our Take, August 27), Apple Inc's founder and CEO Steve Jobs' hanging up his boots once and for all is bad news for the technology industry. Jobs is a maverick technologist and the world will always remember him for revolutionising our dependence on gadgets. It will be interesting to see how Apple Inc maintains its dominance in the market without Jobs' creative genius.

No face to save in this face-off
Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi's recent speech in Parliament was a case of too little, too late (Rahul's take, August 27). He should have spoken on the day Anna Hazare went on his indefinite fast. A timely intervention by Gandhi may have resolved the imbroglio between the government and Anna Hazare and saved the UPA from the embarrassment it faced over the last several days.

All problems but no solutions
Finance minister Pranab Mukhejee's statement that a single legislation, however strong and empowered it may be - referring to the Lokpal Bill - cannot eradicate corruption, is unfortunate ('One legislation not enough', August 28). If the government and Mukherjee know what is needed to root out corruption, then why aren't they taking the necessary measures?
