[Apple] Steve Jobs has passed away - Page 58  

post #571 of 634
I fully appreciate that Steve Jobs was a clever man, who stole other people's idea's and incorporated them into his own and then claimed he had come up with something revolutionary. Apple was, is and always will be one of the best advertising companies in the history of the world, nothing more, nothing less, and I am old enough to remember and know.

As for the man, mortality finally crept up to him and made its mark. Far greater men and women have walked this earth than $teve Job$, people who make the likes of Steve pale to nothingness. The only reason why he's mourned is due to the worship of wealth and money. If he were an ordinary man nobody would care, but this isn't a world in which contribution to mankind is revered, only personal gain matters, thus people weep tears for the rich they idolise.
The girlfriend.

I am not glad hes dead. I dont wish this kind of fate on anyone. I did not know Steve personally, so i cant judge him based on his day to day actions. All i know is his business model was not one i agreed with, but asking a serious question about how average people who arent CEO of Who Cares Inc may feel about this is not breaking rules. Congrats sir, you lost the internet

Its a shame that it had to be a painful disease that did it though. Nothing worse than slow, painful deaths.
No, im referring to your condescending statements about a man that died. if you dont understand that you need some help. If you cant be civil, why not leave this thread instead of posting derogatory comments about a man who died.

Could not agree more.

R.I.P. He must have been really stressed... knowing when he will die... not knowing what to do... :'(

While I feel for his family and all that, things like this irk me though..

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said “I really think Steve Jobs was one of the greatest people to live in our time. A child born today onward will grow up in a world full of iPhones and iPads and will see Steve Jobs as my generation saw Winston Churchill or Albert Einstein.â€
Yeah, he was a great man, but just because he's dead doesn't mean you have to exaggerate.

Anyway, I think Liranan said it better than me ;x

I wrote this elsewhere...figured I'd put it here too:

I've never owned an Apple product. But way back in the day, me and my friends used to use the Apple II, II+ and IIe. I remember we'd go between programming BASIC on my C-64 and IBASIC on the Apple.

I had a lot of respect for Jobs, because he did one thing that a lot of tech leaders don't: he made sure to make products that people would have the same passion for that he did. He wasn't all about business. He had a real love for the technology, how it would help people, inspire people, and take people places and help them do things better. His creativity drove Apple back to greatness after almost dying after he was fired.

The man is an inspiration to me. I see a man of great genius who understood things in a scope greater than most of those around him. His kind of leadership and intellect is incredibly rare, and is more of what this world needs.

He will be missed...even by a non-Apple techie like me.

Steve Jobs didn't inherit his wealth; he earned it. There is a big difference.
People like Steve Jobs are the ones that truly demonstrate why capitalism works; the man worked hard, spent his entire life devoted to the tech industry; and as a reward he received $8 billion dollars, and deservedly so.

He took a garage-based company which he founded to the most valuable company on earth through his own leadership and innovations. There are very few individuals as productive as him.

We celebrate his life, not because of his wealth but because of his hard work, vision and success. His wealth is just a bi-product.

I have the same opinion, shared it on page 1. Again, respects to Jobs, but Albert Einstein? Are you kidding me?
