'Remembering That You Are Going To Die Is The Best Way I Know To Avoid The Trap Of Thinking You Have Something To Lose'
i'm down wit dat vibe stever, though complicity with rare earth hogs and exploitation of labour forces do suggest that something has been lost.
Yes, that's right. The only conceivable reason one could fail to be moved by the death of a corporate boss is envy. How very insightful of you.
As for the severely ignorant like DanR, try to find any other CEO who made a dollar a year. He could have asked for more, but decided in the best interest of the company, not himself.
I wish I could afford to make just a dollar a year.

It's moments like this I really appreciate living in the jungle.
Until this thread I honestly didn't know who he was.
And now I don't need to.

I'm sorry. I realise the death of a religious leader is a difficult time. The Grand Polo-Neck, peace be upon him, was truly a Michelangelo for our age and the world is an incomparably better place now that it's littered with his hi-tech Christmas tree decorations. Truly, we have witnessed the passing of a giant, nay a demi-god.
Well I for one think dan has a point...I'm not about to lecture him on presentation as we all know I suffer from unsharpened knife syndrome myself...but if you really think about it...how different would the world be without apple products?
Really, mourn the loss of an Einstein, Galileo, Ghandi...and the like, and sing their praises for their contribution to humanity...but a man like Jobs really only created an almost religious like following of braindead consumers...not really anything to write home about...
it's understandable in a culture of consumers that a man responsible for production of consumables might be missed...but that in itself is disturbing isn't it?
The guy created(to some) really cool products....hardly qualifies him as a visionary now does it...
The passing of any human being is a time for mourning...but I think Dans issue and mine as well is the blowing out of proportion this particular guys achievements...
