Oh wow...what a shame a brilliant guy...
Not a big fan of apple, but RIP Steve.
"He made the world a better place, we'll miss him."
He sold you grossly overpriced hardware made by borderline slaves in China. Good marketing and product design skills does not qualify one for sainthood.
One of you will end up here next!
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 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.
