Yeah, I'm not sure how somebody would know enough about Apple to know about Wozniak but not know that he was the nicest person in the world while Jobs was a horrible person, both professionally and personally, who died because he tried to treat his cancer with fruit smoothies

You know, its kind of funny how Rene got a new costume but it doesn't seem to be all that better at protecting him seeing as the first time we see him in it he gets shot in the chest and sent to the hospital.

Wouldn't Rene make a more convincing fakearrow? Dig is, well, bigger than Oliver. Significant amounts of bigger. Rene seems a closer physical match

For maximum lols it should be Quentin.

Have you seen Rene standing next to Oliver and Quentin? He's like a foot shorter.

I just checked, he is apparently 5 foot 8 to Ollie's 6 foot 1. You are right, not a great idea.
Clearly they need to bring back Ras Al Ghul. Archer and also tall according to IMDb.

To be fair usually getting shot in the chest lands you in the cemetery.

it's more then that .

Woz invented modern computing , at least in part.

Jobs was essentially a hippy that backed the right horse and marketed the crap out of it.

That's underselling Jobs by quite a lot. He had an uncanny ability for knowing what was next, and an uncompromising eye for detail. Woz was happy making the Apple III, Jobs was responsible for the creation of the Mac.

The man was also an utter tyrant and probably quite unpleasant to be around most of the time, but he had a great eye.

I didn't think it was THAT bad, I've heard worse on TV shows.
Still heaps better than the technobabble on The Big Bang Theory, anyway.

Nahhh, obviously he was only good at marketing. Itís not like he had a huge impact on multiple industries or anything.

If you guys want technobabble you should have seen this week's ep of The Flash. I think Speed Force would actually have been a better explanation than the technobabble they did this week.

For a second I thought "they invented the biological XOR" but realized that I was also wrong.
