I do agree with all of you that the press should not jump on it and make " a guess " at a persons life.

However this is the time we live in, scum journalists will be out there day and night in hope of snapping that one picture , the one that will be sold to the highest bidder.

Makes me sick that people can live with themselves like that..
All this from the high ground of someone who's just done the same thing here...

However i posted this not out of "voyeuristic" behaviour but more with the question in how do you approve/disapprove the way some newspapers work.
I have re-read your original post and just don't see that being the focus. Sorry.

Just because he is well known doesn' t mean he shouldn't have a personal life, or be entitled to some privacy. Give him a break and some respect, especially at this time. Imagine how it is for him and his family. My feeling is the last thing they would want is endless paparazzi and speculation.

To me, out of support for him and not to further the low down gutter press gossip, the best place for this whole thread is the bin.

Just my feelings. If you happen to agree I'm sure a mod would oblige...

Re: Steve Jobs, 6 weeks to live..

May be it is just a rumor.
Anyways. he was treated at University Hospital, Basel a few years ago with investigational radiolabeled peptide for treatment of neuroendocrine tumors.

Re: Steve Jobs, 6 weeks to live..

Funny how the National Enquirer has a doctor to look at such a vague picture taken outside a hospital to comment on how many days Mr. Jobs has to live and how much he may weigh. Even the most experienced doctor wouldn't slip any information unless he has all the reliable reports in front of him.

I bet he will be chuffed that you thought you had the right to publish that in the public domain ...

Hi,

though Apple is a very difficult company to like with Steve Jobs at it's helm, I wish a good recovery and for whatever time he has left to live the best quality life as possible.

However, irrelevant of how serious his condition is now it is clear that time that Apple looks for a successor. Without him there, it will be possible for Apple to undo a lot of the damage it his done to it's reputation with this walled garden approach/Steve knows better than you approach. The next few years will be challenge for Apple as Android looks like it will win the majority of the smartphone and probably slate market. Apple has been very good at building very strong marketing around devices that are evolutionary extensions of ideas from other companies but are pitched in such a way to look "revolutionary".

Martin
I have no idea what damage to Apple's reputation you could be referring to. Whatever it might be, Steve ought to keep damaging it as it does wonders for the brand, product development and share prices.

When Apple has tried to go without Steve in the past, it floundered. Product development came out with bombs, and manufacturing could not produce enough or produced too much. Its shares went down to about $15. Others CEOs tried to run Apple like Pepsi, or Disney, and it just did not work.

It is said that Steve has a reality vortex. He comes into processes with incredible demands and ideas, irritating the more process oriented thinkers, and somehow always manages to pull through what he insists on. To me, that means results. Without someone with that level of drive, strength and authority at Apple, we will likely see Apple turn into yet another dinosaur corporation.

Arent you the eager beaver here.. i have simply put something online that was in the news, if i had not done it, someone else would.

The thread does get responds and its good to see what other people think about this situation but surely you can't ask me to close a thread because of it?

I posted the headline and off go the discussions, some good ,some bad.. its a forum..its what we do..

However my doubts were from the beginning onwards " is this steve jobs ", regardless of how you read it ( see tag "Fake Picture " )

If it bugs you that much, ignore the thread.

Thanks for contributing

Joey aka scum of the earth toilet journalist wanna be..
