This sounds like the rough idea for an article on the Onion...

Paragraph 2: He can keep it, but at least I hope his corporation, which probably focuses on the ideas of Saint Steve, won't pretend money is a side effect of being "awesome". To your question, how many do you want? A hundread? Let's start with these: Bill Gates, Gabe Newell and probably Steve Balmer, can't say he doesn't seem passionate. Also, if you have a couple dozen billions, why can't you try to help the world that made you so powerful? At least, some people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet understood that money isn't actually everything. If I recall correctly, Warren Buffet lives in his parents' home and drives a used Suburban. That's not being all about money, having something to show for. In this case, giving away most of it to others that need it.

What Bill is doing is pretty noble but the dude retired at 52, he's got a boatload of time to do so. Steve decided to just continue his passion of turning Apple around. I don't understand this perception if you have lots of money, you need to be a philanthropist or deemed evil. Anyone can be a philanthropist, you or I and guess what, you don't even need to have billions. I choose not to and I wouldn't think less of anyone if they also chose not to. But the people that argue philanthropy usually are the ones that don't practice it themselves, they leave it to the "RICH", or if the rich don't cough up, they call them greedy, selfish, evil. Yea, that makes sense.

You're not forced to be a philanthropist, I simply have a "Why not?" mentality for people that are that rich. Also, he can keep the money but if Apple (which basically shares Job's beliefs) think money isn't important, why was their founder keeping all of his. I simply believe that in this context, it doesn't make any sense.

Nobody "earns" billions of dollars. That money is stolen by exploiting the sweat and tears of their fellow man.
