What? No Ferrari's?!

Steve Jobs was his photographer at his last wedding to Melanie in 2003 (since divorced)

Goes to show you, if he'd had a Ferrari, he'd still be married...

Can't quite find the logic, but I like the theory nonetheless. Buying a Ferrari saves marriage.

When you buy a new car in CA it takes a few weeks to get the plates. Until the plates arrive you can drive around with a piece of paper in the windshield.

Steve Ballmer needs to step down as well. Can't believe the board at Microsoft hasn't forced it.

As a web guy IE makes me sick. They had their moment in 96 - 2001 then got really really lazy. Even IE9 sucks.

I hope he does some good things with the funds collected from us. Mr. Jobs, to my knowledge and research, didn't help humanity, work with causes, appreciate his end-clientele, appreciate the support we freely gave him when we live in an era of choices. He chose, please correct me if you know more (especially as an Apple employee), if he was a humanitarium or helped our planet in any way.

I've experienced so much joy from his products, all of these Apple products changed my way of life. In my experience, the Apple service is currently crap. I hope Balmer corrects this. I also hope Balmer, or whomever steps in, follows his future roadmap with a microscope.

Steve Jobs is a true visionary and capitalist. I'm glad he got to reap the rewards of the intense work he focused so heavily. I'm glad Apple reinvented the technological world. I just wish his company treated his clients with respect and thought of the people purchasing the products rather than only the money, unless he used some of the insane gouging to benefit others in humanitarian efforts, in global change, awareness, to help others. He didn't, they didn't. It was all upsale and arrogance during this recent 5 years.

Rest in Peace Steve Jobs. I truly hope you rest in peace.

I appreciate giving as much as anyone. My goals for giving are met year in and year out and I feel very fortunate to do so.

So I feel comfortable posting to it's regard - the highest form of giving is anonymous - 100%.

I have sat on boards and been given checks from 1,000 to 10M.

Take some time and read a donor list - a significant portion is under the name anonymous.

I agree Steve Jobs should rest in peace - which is exactly why one never speaks ill of the dead.

No offense but I felt it was necessary to share this thought.

As a landlord who leases to a school in the inner city - Apple donated every computer and a systems engineer team which was well over 100K.

That's one school and just one experience.

In retrospect, I agree. Apologies. It was as if he were still alive and I did speak ill and that's unfortunate of me to do so.

RIP:
He had a full life and I listened to his address at Stan. couple times and the three stories he told were just great. Worth a listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc


I remember him and Woz starting in the 'trade' just before the Apple's start, when they were programming black boxes to dial the IIRC 2600hz sounds one put to dial phones after dialing the 800#s to fool the accounting computer to keep on on the 800[no-charge]system, then quick hook into the regular system to dial free anywhere [better known as the "Capt'n Crunch" as that ceral had a whistle that made the same frequency http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2600_hertz ]. Hackers, but inventors. Some DO shake up the world.

Didn't use their first Apple, seen at the late 1970's fairs, but went into the more kit types we used to build ourselves.

His type will be sorely missed....actual product mfgr types, not these software types.

BEST Thing? People like he, woz, gates and balmer are responsible for TRILLIONS of money, MILLIONS of jobs, and a most likely future that seems to actually produce something.


Wonder how PIXAR is taking this?

Here's one example

And where do you get the idea that Apple doesn't care about their customers? Do you think this happens by accident?

Headed up to Denver next weekend - straight to the mountains.

If we get back early or plans change I will get a hold of you.

Sorry about Steve Jobs ... tough loss my friend!
