    My heart goes out to the family. I lost my mother to cancer and it the most painful way for a family to lose someone. To watch them wither away until there’s nothing left. The family truly knows that he is in a better place. I have felt their pain. I am truly soory that they had to watch him pass that way.

    Millions of people better than Steve Jobs have died and nobody cared.

    Apple is a fashion brand like Prada. Apple did not “innovate”, they simply made their own versions of technology already invented by other people, and people bought the Apple branded stuff because of the Apple name. What was Apple first at? What about the Commodore PET, Xerox PARC and Alto, GEOS graphical user interface, Amiga, Atari ST, Diamond Rio MP3 player, Palm Pilot, Blackberry, HP iPaq, Microsoft Tablet PC, etc., etc., etc.?

    Steve Jobs was not an engineer and did not even know how to write a computer program. Where was his genius? Apple fired him in 1985 because he was such a jerk and a bad businessman. Even Apple products were not created by Steve Jobs, but by actual engineers such as Steve Wozniak, who Steve Jobs stabbed in the back.
