One of Virgin's newest planes, an Airbus A320, has been emblazoned with the popular Jobs quote "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish". The quote comes from his 2005 commencement address at Stanford University, and was orignally used in the Whole Earth Catalog in the 1970's. According to Mac Rumors, the name was chosen as part of an internal plane naming competition. [Mac Rumors]

"Stay hungry, stay foolish" ? seems like Jobs is telling all fanbois to continue to foolishly hand over their money for apple products. A simple ad-campaign separating fools and their money is being turned into words of wisdom? Or perhap virgin wants the same ad-campaign.
