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 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.

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.
