    He won't rest in peace. You could see it in his eyes the last few months he was alive, after he left Apple--there was sadness in his eyes that reflected deep regrets in life. He knew he made huge mistakes in his personal life and couldn't swallow it.

    How? I never owned his products and my life was better for it

    The asses he kicked were all the poor schmucks who got stuck in his closed, proprietary reality distortion field.

    jobs = edison?! the reality distortion field hath no sympathy for historical accuracy .

    Edison invented things. jobs invented nothing.

    I challenge anyone to name a single original useful device or technology jobs invented.

    Really? Because I have had my Macbook Pro for five years and only twice did I have a problem with it. Apple fixed it without charging me. My windows laptop on the other hand has crashed twice since I have owned it in July, and my parents have gone through 3 windows computers in the time they got their Apple desktop six months before I got my laptop. I would say our lives were made easier and better with them.

    I have a Lenovo running Fedora Linux (kernel 2.6.34) w/Chrome and it's never crashed, and it cost much less than your Macbook Pro, and has all the same functionality (minus the bloat).

    Now please tell me again why your life is easier than mine .

    As capitalists go, Jobs outranks Edison by a mile. Sure, Edison could invent the mousetrap. But Jobs could make it better, and better, and better
