Bono and Jobs

One last excerpt from Options, the fictional novel by Fake Steve Jobs poser Dan Lyons.

So Bono is in town, because now in addition to being a rock star he's also got this investment company with a bunch of Silicon Valley private equity scumbags, who are even worse than venture capitalists, if that's actually possible. They've told him they'll double his money in five years, which in Valley speak means they are going to fleece him for every penny he's stupid enough to give him. So far he's forked over twenty million. I don't have the heart to tell him the truth. He's having so much fun.
