    Sad News
    You should have made this an RIP thread. Maybe a mod can fix it.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    "Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Stay hungry. Stay foolish." -Steve Jobs 1955-2011

    Words to live by. RIP.

    jobs' death means just as much as his life: nothing. In a nutshell, his life was all image, no substance

    TO anyone who actually knows about computers and what's always been available in the market, jobs was never an innovator. He was just exceptionally good at creating the impression that he was by copying existing working technologies and putting the "Apple" or "i" prefix before it and then popularizing his version of it to the point where the dumbed down public believed he founded the technology.

    Apple did not invent the GUI desktop environment, or the mouse, did not invent the portable digital music player or even create the best one on the market at the time of the iPod, and did not invent the touch pad cell phone or PC.

    And, FYI (to those iCult members here), Apple did not invent death.

    What jobs did do was create a cult of technically unsophisticated users who worshiped jobs solely because they were convinced something was better simply because it has the Apple name on it.

    I have never owned an Apple product and am damn proud of it ! In fact, I owned several products years before Apple "invented" them. To the iCult, this makes no sense, obviously. But to technically adept users like me, who actually know stuff, it provided another joyous reason to laugh at everyone else who wasted their money buying an "i."

    To top it off, jobs was a total jerk to everyone who worked with him. He intimidated his employees for no reason, made all his technology closed and proprietary (i. e. ALAC, AppleTalk) solely to monopolize market share. He also exploited several children in overseas factories to assemble his junk so he could maximize profits.

    In conclusion, jobs was one of those who simply deserved to die. Good riddance. I won't be attending the iFuneral .

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You do know that AAC is not proprietary, right? That's like Codec 101.
