Cool story, bro. Now care to explain why you're standing up for a guy who lies straight faced so he can fill his already full coffer? I don't care if you like Apple products or not. The fact is Steve Jobs is a terrible man. It's been shown in news story after news story, and no one seems to give a damn.

So, forgive me if I don't care if he dies. Or don't. I'm pretty dismissive of overly emotional people. Your sobbing bothers me not.

Not to defend Job at all, I just want to say how CNN is hardly credible.

While you are partially right the fact of the matter is almost every essential iphone application has a android counterpart. Granted android is still playing catch up but claiming superiority simply because they have been around longer is ridiculous. (Not saying you are saying its superior for that reason, referring to the people that will say iphones are inherently better because they have a larger application selection.)

This is absolutely true, he is a greedy and selfish man. Granted I don't hope he dies but he is not a good person. Gotta love him coming back, cutting apples philanthropy division because it was harming their profits and still not reinstating it despite having some of the largest profit margins in the industry nowadays.

True, but apparently Mr. Jobs believes in self fulfilling prophecies (and he's usually right).

I'll just be glad when all the virus & malware makers move over to Apple..

At least they can feel justified in hating that company, Microsoft at least gave you your money's worth.

Tablets are a gimmick IMO. Just big phones. Good for surfing the web occasionally, playing arcade games, downloading useless apps ect. I bet you'd be missing a keyboard and touchpad real quick if you wanted to write e-mails or actually be productive.

The key part of that is volume. I guess since what is considered "volume" is subjective, there will be differing opinions.

I think what Jobs meant by volume is how many units are actually going to sell. I doubt any other tablet has sold anything remotely close to the numbers the iPad 2 are about to put up.

I'm not an Apple fanboy.. just saying.
