On the plus side, one more handicapped parking space available for someone who actually needs it.

I'd talk about the article but Fark has filtered the word baitclick because too much backlash against Gawker and fartbuzz

Lately it seems like half the shiat that gets greenlit here was made by one of those so called my favorite website generators.

Same goes for folks that defend a sociopathic jackass that parked in a handicapped spot, never bothered with license plates, yelled at random clerks, stormed out of hotels, disowned his daughter for years, was never grateful for anything (even his own parents), screwed over his own business partner woz on an early bonus.

Here's a hint, fanboy: Jobs didn't build your computer. Jobs didn't design your computer. What jobs did was fill the charismatic frontman role for a national company. He was the sales man. And, a Type A sociopath. Do you really want to put someone like that up on a pedestal?

//and before you resort to "oh, so you must be microsoft". No. I actually respect that apple makes a product that will reliably work, even at the expense of customization. But jobs himself? Honestly, nothing of value was lost. I only feel sorry for his family for their loss, but he did not deserve success in the slightest.

In a rare move for fark - Sorry, that came off unnecessarily harshly. I just wish the world would pick better people to be the successes.

I'm really surprised nobody ever threw Jobs a beating when he was alive.

In other news, it`s so obvious that Apple is going down the pan with no Jobs that even bots can write the story...
 
2014-08-04 04:37:59 AM  
This...could be a sign that people are writing too many columns about Apple.

The latest thing is that you should buy their stock because they are 're-inventing the watch.

Go ahead, buy their stock. I'll keep working on my time machine to 2005.

The bot repeats certain standard anti-Apple phrases without any self-awareness or logical thinking. So it's basically the same as many other tech writers.

The world doesn't pick people to be successful, they pick themselves. That's why they're sociopathic sometimes.

I don't know about all that and personally don't really care. What I do know is that now it is a total pain in the ass to add music or movies to my iPod. Before it was just drag and drop. Didn't even have to actually have the file in iTunes. Now you gotta add the file to a playlist, go to the iPod tab, then go to the tab for music (or movies or audiobooks), and then scroll down to check an artist (which will put ALL their stuff on your iPod), album or individual song. But if you are like me and have THOUSANDS of songs it takes a while to scroll down that list. Plus if you need to adjust the playback volume (because the volume is too low on the iPod) you need to do that before hand as you cannot adjust or edit anything on the iPod now. I would really like to meet the jerk that thought this was a better solution, challenge him to see which one works better, and then punch him in the cock.

Are you denying that Jobs was an asshole? Because he is well known for being an ass

Well, if you believe that there is a god, maybe somebody did.

machoprogrammer: Are you denying that Jobs was an asshole? Because he is well known for being an ass


If anybody denies that you can pretty much dismiss anything else they say.  Jobs was a terrible, terrible human being...who happened to be very successful.  I'm not a believer in Karma, but if I did Jobs would be a perfect example.  Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Assholes win. If they were nice guys they would get edged out of the company and the assholes would take over.

One way I tell if someone is a psychopath is `do they earn more than £500,000 per year` through whatever way they earn money. Jobs did it with his shares which made him very very rich to the point he could make a little gesture like taking no wages.

abdulfattah john jandali  must have been proud.


No, wait, he was an asshole too.

Somaticasual: makes a product that will reliably work,


I actually am the front line support for the branch I work for - there's about 40-50 people.  Head office just switch to an them and  I see crashes (one even happened while someone was trying to present) and at least one or two hardlocks (requiring force reset combination keypress), and random eternal "loading" screens on the app developed for the thing.

To me, they (un)reliable that any other device I've used.  As a matter of fact, http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomiogeron/2012/02/02/does-ios-crash-more- than-android-a-data-dive/  says Android is more stable.

I waver on how I feel about people who park in the handicapable spots.  George Herbert passed that law and I think it sometimes goes a bit overboard.  For example, Home Depot and your local dive shop should be able to choose to reduce the number of spots by 50%.  Both types of stores just don't seem to have a ton of customers with special needs.  In their case, the market will work to fill that need.  Given the general excessive number of parking spots the law arbitrarily mandates, it isn't so bad if some people feel the need to be jerks and park in them anyway.   Places with 2 parking spots shouldn't be required to make one handicapped.  (that is the rule BTW.  1 to 25 spaces means one has to be handicapped.  My facility was designed for about 500 employees.  We only have about 80 people at this location.  We have one employee who is "handicapped".  He doesn't use a handicapped spot most days.  Nobody does. But there those empty parking spots are.  Who can't use the exercise anyway...)
