Re: RIP Steve Jobs

Apple is the kind of company I hate. All form over function... and at a hell of a price. Jobs was a clever guy who latched onto the 'me must have' generation. Cant take away his marketing prowess and the fact that he has kept some semblance of electronics production in the West, if only the design element. Sorry to see anyone go before their time, but he was Guchi rather than Isambard (Kingdom Brunel).

Colorful speech but isn't it kind of speaking ill of the dead?

Very strange thing to say, just because someone has died dosnt change what they did while alive, he was speaking the truth.

Re: RIP Steve Jobs

My reference was the comment "me must have". Is that truly the case, or opinion? What's this got to do with religion? How about respect?

Re: RIP Steve Jobs

I don't see JD's post as speaking ill of the dead - he said he was a clever guy.

I agree with the sentiment, the greed of the majority living beyond their means is what got us all in to this global economic mess IMO. Apple jumped on the bandwagon, and did very well out of it - on some people's credit cards. Not Steve Jobs' fault or Apples though.

Apple was a very powerful tool that I used in product engineering in the 80s for data characterization on analog products. It saved me weeks of compiling data. These were primarily used in the shuttle program 25 miles north of where I still live. It was the most powerful and affordable computer you could buy when IBM was still $2500 and had all kinds of limitations.

Who pissed in your cheerios? Man, you just want to find a fight.
It's ok to voice your opinion when you're sincere about it. No matter if the subject is dead or alive. Or just pissed off.

Since you have nothing to say on the subject, go play with your stupid dog.
WOW! It's like someone's Mac got a sideways screw in it!

Re: RIP Steve Jobs

Ah yes, a post 2 weeks ago. It's such a warm feeling to have a shadow. Thankfully, the ex has truly disappeared from the face of the earth. Probably in CA where she fits in best.
