(Newser) – It's not exactly a bombshell revelation, but Mark Zuckerberg tells NBC's Matt Lauer that he doesn't pay much attention to fashion. "I mean, I wear the same thing every day, right?" he says in the Today interview, which airs Thursday. "I mean, it's literally, if you could see my closet." As it turns out, he doesn't use the closet much, leaving it mostly to new wife Priscilla Chan. Zuckerberg says he has one drawer ("like men everywhere") that he keeps filled with "about 20" gray T-shirts of the same design, a la Steve Jobs.

The other snippet released has Zuckerberg talking about the iPhone 5. He calls it a "wonderful device" and a "great platform," but notes that more people use Facebook on Android at this point. He adds that even more people skip the apps and open Facebook through a browser, no matter the phone. "There are more people doing that than the iPhone and all of Android phones combined, right? So it's actually a pretty diverse ecosystem." Zuckerberg is in Russia this week looking to beef up Facebook's presence there, and he left the T-shirt behind to meet Dmitry Medvedev.

The new Howard Hughes has arrived. It won't be long and he'll be saving his piss in milk bottles and letting his fingernails grow super long.

Notice the guy owns 20 tee shirts, not 2000, this is silly, but it still stands to prove that the super rich are not job creators one bit. They do not drive up demand for a product alone. Only the working class can do that. They can only buy products if they can afford to. A business owner will only hire if demand is up. Why would a rich business man want to pay someone to do something if there is no demand? They only way govt. has EVER helped a recession is by adding relief to the poor, by taxing the rich. Cutting taxes only leads to austerity, which is an economy destroyer, always has been.
