The latter is true but the former unlikely. You don't get to that level in business but being anything but a 24-karat gold pr*ck.
Nice to his friends and family is more what I was referring.

I still hold out hope that some of these guys are good.

Re: Apple Founder Steve Jobs Passed away age 56

Sad times around the house tonight as my husband and I are swapping stories about Jobs and such. He'll be missed, even by the non-nerdy types mocking our sorrow. Those of us old enough to remember the internet before the web and remember Jobs for the things he should be remembered for (i.e. not the iPod or iPad) understand the loss. A few glasses of wine will help ease the pain but, truly, tomorrow is a brave new day.

I'd laugh if it wasn't so incredibly tasteless and sad.

Re: Apple Founder Steve Jobs Passed away age 56


Now Westboro is really the posterboy for extreme 'christian religious' insanity, and always in poor taste with their protests, I can't help but kinda agree with some of their statements on some non-secular level.

In theme (ignoring all the bible references) this falls very close along the lines of the Occupy Wallstreet protests. But the timing is just inexcusable, and yeah that Phelps is a way over the quack side.

Re: Apple Founder Steve Jobs Passed away age 56

I passed the Apple store on Bahnhofstrasse yesterday and saw the floral tributes that had been left for Steve Jobs (I admit to being half moved/ half puzzled by them). It made me wonder if the the Apple stores in China had fake flowers left outside them.

Re: Apple Founder Steve Jobs Passed away age 56

Sad, yes, devastatingly so for his family and friends, but this sums it up for me nicely.

Oops, sorry Chemmie. In my defence, it is EF, so I am therefore proscribed from reading the entire thread (or even the current page ).

Can I just ask how much did Jobs donate in the global fight against malaria?
