I read a News.com article yesterday that made me green with envy… money green, that is: “Apple again pays Jobs $1 salary.” According to the article, “Jobs has taken a $1 salary for the past several years, although in March 2003, he was awarded 10 million restricted shares of Apple stock that will be fully vested this month.”

I would happily accept $1 per year for 10 million shares of CNET stock. How exactly do you work that kind of deal?
