Steve Jobs as a man is dead.

Steve Jobs as an icon lives on.

Like Batman.

I do. I don't purchase Apple products, and I'm not the biggest fan of their approach, but I can't deny the impact Steve Jobs has had on the industry. He wasn't a technical genius (that was Steve Wozniak in Apple's early days), but he had the marketing and management skills to make things happen. We have traces of that in our everyday lives, now.

You know, I still don't know that much about him. I guess I should look him up. When someone's death means so much to so many people, they're usually worth at least 5 minutes on google or wikipedia. Usually.

I was going to go to his funeral, but I heard the reception was terrible.

As long as Apple can continue to prevent a Microsoft Monopoly, I don't really care...

Dude was awful, I don't care, and I think the people who do haven't read up on his misdeeds.

Or maybe they just care about the product over the person, which is fine too.

You're either referring to his DRM-policies or his track record as a parent, yes?

I agree that he could have done a much better job as a father. I did think the story about his biological father was pretty tragic. Basically, his biological father desired a relationship with him but refused to make the first move because he didn't want Jobs to think that he was after the money.

Pride can be a bitch.

And the stock fuckery, and what he did to his supposed best friend.

...Or it's the third option, that you're referring to something I didn't know about.

Yeah, wasn't familiar with those ones.

Oh oh, and the fact he rigged the organ donation system so he could get a liver. I forgot that part.

He was just very...evil villain type.

The only way it affected me, or that I even knew, was that apple.com is my homepage, and his picture was on it for like a good month.

I dunno. During his death time a lot of people gave me shit for owning an apple laptop, maybe because more conversation sparked on them because of the news. They told I bought his shitty products (funny when they say that and they have iPods)

Don't really know anything about him, but I run Windows 7 and Mac OSX 7, and I've never had trouble with it.
I've heard he's a bad guy. I don't know, but I like his products.
