A bunch of Apple fans were going to get together for a memorial. A site was chosen, they all set out with iPhones in hand for directions, and you know the rest.

Maybe next year.

Died around the same time.

More or less invented the modern operating system and computer programming languages.

You heard nothing about him.

gweilo8888: Xcott: That's going to become the bogus myth about Steve Jobs, like the tripe that "Bill Gates was just a really good businessman."

Apple computer didn't just make take existing products and make them prettier. They invented some of the first personal computers (back when we called them "home computers,") and one of the first PCs with a WIMP GUI as the primary means of using it.

Wow, somebody finished ALL their Kool-Aid!

Steve Jobs and Apple invented neither the personal computer, nor the WIMP GUI. They were among the early manufacturers of personal computers, and they were among the first to use a WIMP GUI, but crediting them with "inventing" either is complete and utter rubbish. Talk about bogus myths, you fanboys really believe this drivel, don't you?


It would have saved you a lot of energy if you just responded, "I can't or didn't read."

The Apple I was one of the first personal computers, and Apple invented it. The Mac was one of the first PCs with a WIMP GUI, and they invented it. Which of these statements is rubbish?

Also, can you name a personal computer predating the Mac---not a workstation, not a lab experiment---that had a WIMP GUI as the primary means of using it? You have the Amiga that was not shipping, but demoed at CES in 1984. What else?

Xcott: Like Bill Gates, he was a computer engineer and computer programmer.


You don't have the slightest clue about the guy do you?

"According to Apple cofounder, Steve Wozniak, "Steve didn't ever code. He wasn't an engineer and he didn't do any original design..." Daniel Kottke, one of Apple's earliest employees and a college friend of Jobs', stated that "Between Woz and Jobs, Woz was the innovator, the inventor. Steve Jobs was the marketing person."

So his company made BILLIONS of dollars in PROFIT each and every quarter, yet not once did Obama mention Steve Jobs as someone who has "made enough money".

The job conditions were so bad at his factories in China, that workers were committing suicide, yet he was praised, deified even, by his cultish fanboys and girls.

He easy could have chose to manufacture the product in the USA and perhaps made only 1 BILLION in PROFIT per quarter and paid some American workers who aren't coders decent wages, but didn't.

His treatment of his US employees, wasn't much better. The rumor was that it wasn't a good career move to ride the elevator with him.

Not a businessman to emulate and not much of a human being to emulate, unless you only really want to be remembered as a super douche to the people who knew you.

Maybe they should dig him up every year and repackage him in a slightly better coffin.
