If it wasn't for Steve Jobs there wouldn't be a fierce cut throat smartphone and tablet market. What Sony did for the Walkman is what Steve Jobs did for the iPod.
Steve Jobs is America's icon for innovation and renovation, if it wasn't for Steve Jobs we'd all be using Japanese technologies and Korean copies of those technologies.

Jobs didn't gave enough money to charities? Who are you to decide what he should do with what he earned? Stop trying to strip down the rich, try to be just as rich to be able to give all that money to whatever population you want to help instead. Much more useful than QQing here.
Just get off your high horse!
Android didn't copy iOS at all? You guys are incredible. Really. Your hatred for Apple distorts reality. Oh and yeah before anyone answers: I do think iOS copied from its predecessors.
Apple creates markets. Sure they didn't create the first tablet but they created the first mainstream one, and it's definetely thanks to Apple Samsung and others sell tablets today for example. Like I often say, Apple bakes a new cake, takes all the risks and once its successful everyone else tries to get a part without taking any risk.
How Android being in work before iOS prevents it from copying iOS once it's released (before Android as we know it, at that)?

So many ignorant replies and misinformation in this thread it's unbelievable. This is a good example of the rampant hatred Android users keep bottled in just waiting to explode in thread like this.
With regards to philanthropy, Jobs did donate to charities via his wife. He worked with Bono. He set up a now defunct charitable organization. He simply spent his every breath on Apple and his family. He didn't have time for charity, so he had others do it for him. He kept it private, so whatever he donated you'll never hear about.
Just because he's not like Bill Gates doesn't mean the man didn't give a damn. You people need to start reading more news and less headlines.
Every Apple thread I come across there's always delusional, disconnected and disoriented lunatics waiting to unleash their anti-Apple wonderland fantasies. Keep dreaming folks your Android masters need more mindless dumbed down irrational people like you.
Without people like you where else will Android's market come from? Keep up the good work suckers.
