OT: The Dowd article, and some other excerpts from the bio, do paint a sort of sad picture. It's like the person in the world whom he most wanted to impress, and from whom he most wanted affection, was someone he had never met...who wanted to buy an ipod.
When did he do that? Job's never put a PC in my hand. Bill Gates had a far greater impact on making that happen.

Imagine a world where Mac had beaten PC? This entire forum would not exist because no one would be able to build their own computers or we would all be running linux.

Why is this still in the news.

Why does everyone refer to him as the king of computing. That man DID die recently, but his name certainly wasn't Steve Jobs. Steve was a king of marketing.

I rather enjoy all of the people stating Jobs "put a PC in your hands." Something these people are forgetting about Palm, RIM, and most notably Motorola. Motorola brought us the mobile phone, Palm brought us the PDA and RIM mashed them together in a beautiful symphony, the first good smartphone that revolutionized business and jump started the Smartphone industry.

All that hack Jobs did was sugar coat it with gloss paint, throw a touch screen on it and call it a day.
Awesome

Eh all people ever do is pick apart the bad. I get laid and I have that attitude sometimes. Even if I was a billionaire I'd still carry my self the same way and act the same way.

Yes. It's called "how many hits can we get today without doing any work?"
