Why does philanthropy make a good person? Apple is one of the best if not THE best companies in terms of customer service. He gave to his customers, no?
I'm sick of all of you people judging somebody based on what they gave back. Jobs worked damn hard for that money, he was a friggin' genius. Who cares what he does with it?
Jobs CREATED the markets that he created products in. The iPhone was revolutionary... Way better than any other smartphones at the time. The MacBook Air? Are you friggin' kidding me? I own one, the thing is beautiful. iPod? Same story.
I'm not a fanboy, but I appreciate innovation. The only thing you all can bicker about is how Jobs' ethics were questionable... Are you perfect? No! Christ, get off your high horse and stop acting high and mighty.
Shut up. You're not better than him or the rest of us because of what you've given.
