    Never mind that the Chinese government never intervened or that the families didn't protest and drive such companies out?

    I don't like Apple like a company for their practices but won't bash Steve Jobs now that he's dead.
    If you make a poll for Bill Gates I will gladly give my opinion.

    Somewhere in between. We all like to lionize a guy when he's dead, but Steve Jobs was hardly an angel. Along with what was mentioned in the OP, Apple was responsible for aggravating the ongoing conflict in the Congo due to the demand for coltan. Of course, we as consumers are far from innocent as well.

    Gates may being doing more for the world than Jobs did, but I've never bothered to really know. I am an Apple user and an extremely satisfied one. IMHO Jobs created something more unique than most software/hardware people.

    As for saying things about dead people, that's bull****.

    He was a brilliant visionary. As a society, we should all mourn the loss of someone who has literally changed the world, and perhaps could have changed it again had he been with us longer.

    He was neither, he was human, just like us all.

    No he wasn't, he was an alien of the iAmfromanotherplanet people, who came to Earth to spread joy and technology.

    This is such a troll of a question - like those are the only two choices? How about this: he was human.
