When I was young I kicked my sister.
my mum gave me such a smack, then asked "do you want another one"?
"Jeez" mum I said "I have enough trouble with one sister without you having another"
Have they tried turning him off and on again?
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
Symbols must be crushed.
This is news; he was famous, known, and respected for good and real reasons. RIP.
I just wish I'd have bought some stock.
Rich prick dies. Boo-fucking-hoo. Still, I'm sure the workers at the Foxconn plant are wearing their black armbands.
i reckon it was the lacklustre unveiling of the new ifone that did him in. there was no mention but it really looked like the apple balloon was losing air all of a sudden.
There are obviously worse but that doesn't mean he wasn't bad. The whole purpose of Apple is to produce shiny, throw-away baubles which are, in essence, fucking useless. That's not a good thing. And the fact the we're now going to be subject to Bhumiphon-esque levels of hagiography about what a visionary he was makes my stomach turn. How much air time are the workers in Shenzen going to get, reminiscing about the wonders of the iPhone? How about the victims of the war in the Congo? Well, fuck them. They didn't pay for my holiday and they weren't on the cover of Time. If you want a symbol for the stupidity and corruption at the heart of capitalism, that black fucking polo-neck's got a lot going for it.
