So let's all take off our selective memory goggles and not forget how cutthroat Jobs was. It's difficult to overstate his professional influence, but he left in his wake all of the people he screwed over to get where he did.

Jobs was a raging egomaniac who cheated his partner Wozniak, cut Apple's corporate philanthropy programs, and knowingly lied about being sterile to avoid raising his daughter.

He was an undeniably charismatic self-made man, but he fought dirty to get to the top.
Now I miss him even more!

I really didn't think much of Steve before all this. I was only 3 when Steve made his comeback to Apple in '96. To me, he was simply that head of a company that made some really cool electronics. That's not to say I didn't like the man, but rather I didn't really pay much attention to him. However, after hearing of his death and reading about some of the stuff he did for the computer industry, I'm surprised by how effected I feel by it. Anyhow, R.I.P. Steve. If can become a mere fraction of the man you were, well... I would most definitely consider my life a success.

I'm tired of seeing "Oh I hate Apple but Steve was cool". Why can't you just pay the man respect and move on. Don't add the condition of hating Apple to it. And why do you hate Apple? Unless someone from the board of directors has come to your house and slapped you for using Windows I don't see what the big deal with them is.

I may be wrong, and I'm sure you all will point it out, but this hatred seems so childish to me. The only reason for hating Apple is because it's "cool" and "trendy". If they give people what they want, and obviously they do, why does that piss you off so much?

Now back to what I quoted, and what I'm sure some of you will say. We are a nation fueled by consumerism. You can bash Apple and say them using Foxconn is "wrong" but unless you're Amish you literally have NO room to speak. Who do you think makes your PC components? Clothes? Farms your food? Where do you think your outdated electronics go???

Apple isn't the problem. WE ARE.

As for Steve Jobs, I could care less if he was mean to people or made them cry. He pushed people to be better and to do things they didn't think they could. I don't remember when I got my first Windows PC but I know my first experience with a PC was the Apple IIe and that I used them in elementary school. Sure, without him we'd get PCs eventually but when. And what would they have been like. I'm happy with how he shaped the history of tech. He had a vision and he made sure he got it into the hands of millions.



Btw, Lion sucks. I miss my all windows Expose.

You don't become the best at what you do by respecting other people's feelings. That is why most normal people who respect social norms too much never rise to the top.

As for his other flaws - I am sure most of us have skeletons in our closets that we would never want to talk about.

I have owned only two Apple products in my entire life (a MacBook Pro and an iPod Touch) but have since sold them in favor of a Thinkpad an Zune HD. I can't say that Apple's products have changed my life, but Mr. Jobs, by sheer force of will and personality, upset many conventions and urged others to think differently. His greatest coup was the iPhone, no doubt. With the iPhone, most of us will still be stuck with archaic Blackberry-like devices, not the sleek touch-screen devices we use today.

We shouldn't deify the man, but we can't understate his achievements either. In my eyes, he is almost up there with Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, though not quite.

I heard this morning. Very sad news. I didn't think his illness would get to him this quickly. A good man was lost.

In a somewhat honor of Steve Jobs, I have put away my IBM Model M and plugged my Mac aluminum keyboard back in. I'm also installing Snow Leopard 10.6 server edition onto my VMware virtual machine. Rest in peace Steve Jobs. Although a lot of OCN members are ignorant, thank you for revolutionizing the world of the computer, the cell phone, the tablet, and many other things we take for granted and do not realize what impact you had on the world.
