[Apple] Steve Jobs has passed away - Page 64  

post #631 of 634
shocking news, not an Apple fan or consumer but the footprint he left behind will be with us for generations to come. even with Atari and Pixar he revolutionized the way we use technology in our day to day lives for business and pleasure. very sad news indeed.

I didn't like Jobs, the corporate figure who turned Apple into a hipster culture selling $5 cables for $50 and hailing him as computer Jesus. As a businessman I also don't respect him that much, especially considering his products were built upon the hands of people basically in slavery,towards the end.

However, on a more human level, he probably was good to his real friends and probably did many of things in private that were commendable. Watching the Woz interview proved he was actually a person alot of people cared about and will miss. I just wish he could have addressed the Foxconn like issues better, doing business with people with higher human rights indexes. Doing that would have secured his legacy alot more highly in the minds of alot of people,including myself.

Especially as someone who had a policy of living like every day is your last...and especially as someone who probably knew he was on his way out of this world in short order for a while now.

If I were Jobs, I'd have put the Foxconn issue in its place before I died. I'm not around for any of the repercussions anyway. Get one more tarnished mark off my permanent record.
