    He sold you grossly overpriced hardware made by borderline slaves in China. Good marketing and product design skills does not qualify one for sainthood.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Re: Steve Jobs just died

    I do not like to speak ill of the dead but he was not some damn Guru or something. He was a moneymaker. Did he change the world we live in with the products he created? Sure. But other than that? What did he really do? Give me somethings meaningful this man (keyword here is MAN) did for the world. I am not talking about tech stuff. I am talking what he did to make this world a better place. Sure I know that his products can be used to help folks but on a personal level what did he do? I know he had said in the past that he did not have time to help with charity as he just needed to work to do stuff and yes folks in hospitals and blah, blah, blah use his stuff. But did this man on a personal level ever do anything out of his heart that did not involvle his products? I am just curious.

    I do not want to defame the man in death...but there are articles out there surfacing since his death that he was not a sweetheart off camera behind the scenes and a not so well liked guy by apple employees....thats personal however and does not diminish his many accomplishments
    Heres one of the articles ive seen about him behind the scenes...

    Not everyone who contributes to the world, does so in the manner of someone such as Mother Theresa.

    I don't know that you or I are qualified to judge what, if anything that Jobs did, came “out of his heart”.

    But I do not think that anyone can rationally deny that—whatever his motives may have been, whatever rewards he may have sought or received in return notwithstanding—he was a man who contributed greatly to the world, and who did a great deal to make the world a better place.

    You seek to minimize his contribution by questioning whether it came “out of his heart”, and only involved technological products.

    I doubt if there is or has been any other man who has had such a profound effect on the way that we use modern computer-based technology to improve our lives. Even if you don't own or use any products made by Apple, you surely do own or use many products that involve technology that was pioneered by Apple, and you own and use many products whose development was driven by a need to compete with Apple.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Ah Question, now given the fact that I am a iPhone and iPad owner... I really don't see how getting to watch porn on my iPhone made the world a better place

    Made my pants a better place though.
