Easy role, rip everyone off as much as possible while forcing them into a sheep pen, have your company sue every other competitor who have a superior product and don't donate a dime in charity while the workers producing the items sold commit suicide due to the working conditions. Shame i cant sink so low or the role would been easy to get into!

Steve Jobs invented nothing. He was a good observer and refined the products that failed into succesful products.
I hope he MUST use Android, where ever he is now :_)

[citation][nom]__-_-_-__[/nom]I would like if they interview some of the ex foxcon workers that suicide from the poor working conditions that apple supported.[/citation]
Steve is currently stood in the middle of a queue of people waiting to get into hell's equivalent of the pearly gates, there is a line of Foxconn suicide victims in front of him and it's taking a loooooong time to get in.

Who cares, the guy is an ahole for the reasons below:

1. Scammed Wocz and lied to him for his ideas. Best BFF ever.

2. Gave two-#$*& about his employees. Terrible manager from others perspectives online.

3. Californian. **Yeah Herbal meds really helped you in the end huh?**

4. Didn't believe in families.

5. Started to believe in God in the end? He thought he was God himself until oops.

[citation][nom]jl0329[/nom]Good or bad, the man is dead. Respect the dead, even he is bad.[/citation]
Hitler, Bin Laden, Stalin and Jeffrey Dahmer are all dead too
Should I respect them?
...
Simply being not alive anymore does not confer an instant respect status on someone, I feel sorry for Steve Jobs family and friends, but he was still an a-hole.

Retaliating a general statement with such extreme cases does not warrant a higher moral point. Ok, wtf am I talking about? NM, all I want to say is, you may feel like he is a-hole, but he is dead and you are not. You win :) and just leave the dead along. Personally, I and my family actually enjoy Apple's product a lot, I hold no grudge for him.

While I haven't agreed with a lot of Apple over the years, Jobs had directly/indirectly pushed technology where it is today, and for that I thank you Jobs. Only Apple product I have actually owned is an iPod and hope to keep it that way.

But one thing that always sticks with me about Jobs (in a bad way) and how he views his employees and work ethic is:

"90 hours a week and loving it"

You will be missed Steve, even though I haven't agreed with most of your practices over the past 25 years. You did have a vision Steve, but I wouldn't call it revolutionary.

In general, people that bring up Hitler and Stalin in a comparison cannot be taken seriously.

I do not agree with Jobs, but it's important to calm down. As we say, "dead men have no mouths".
