He'd probably wait until it was fixed by someone else then add a rounded edge and claim he did it.

One thing that contributed to Job's demise was him being a hard head delaying therapy recommended by his doctors and instead opting for Diet, meditation, Eastern Herbal treatments, acupuncture and spiritualism and delaying traditional treatment until the cancer got a foothold in his body.

Was it his pancreas?  I thought it was his liver.  Either way, if Apple had been involved, sure it would work but cost twice as much as competitors.  They should have gotten Amazon to do this farker.

Lionel Mandrake: Was Steve Jobs a health care expert or something?

/way to conflate the website problems with the ACA, "liberal media"

The exact opposite.

He had the one kind of pancreatic cancer that can be cured.

But for nine months, he shunned doctors and instead persued a vegan diet, acupuncture, herbal remedies, psychics, juice fasts, and bowel cleansings.

Many experts who have commented on his situation believe his foolishness cost him his life.

Actually, maybe that DOES make him the perfect health care mentor for the GOP.

Jobs would state that there's no problem with the website, and it's not their fault if you're logging in the wrong way.

A low-cost multi-tiered product with safeguards to protect the consumer is anathema to Steve Jobs. Apple's vision of health care is an empty hospital where patients spend thousands of dollars to stand in line and be told by a 'Medi-Wizard' that broken legs can't be mended but they'll sell you a wheelchair.

Steve Jobs would make you wait 5 months while seeing if the herbal diet cured your cancer while refusing chemotherapy, and then use his fortune to knock himself up a few knotches on the transplant list after he lets his cancer get to the point where chemo is ineffective.

A Dark Evil Omen: It galls me that Steve Jobs is such a farking icon of my industry. It makes me want to move to the moon, where there are no computers.

I prefer to think of Steve Jobs as the guy who helped to bring Steve Wozniak's work to the market.

way south: ...Government is way too corrupt and easily manipulated to take direct control over 20% of the economy ...

In what way does the implementation of the ACA mean that the government has 'direct control' over anything? How is this talking point still a thing? Obamacare is not government-run health care in the same way that State Farm or Progressive giving you auto insurance is not government-run insurance just because they've placed rules on what constitutes minimum coverage and who should have it.

/I mean for fark's sake, it's been over three years...

I know exactly how he would fix it.....

He would create a website with a single button. Press the button and your computer takes your photo and you are instantly signed up for iSurance, which would be the same coverage plan at the same price for everyone, because Jobs knows better than you what is right for you, you flaming idiot.

/I am firmly of the opinion he thought everyone who was not him was too stupid to live and he only suffered the rest of us because we were just smart enough to do menial jobs that were below him, in order to make his life more comfortable.

Marcus Aurelius: FnkyTwn: I love good 'dead steve jobs' jokes.

Have you heard any?

Q: What's the difference between cancer and a black man? (clearly racist)
A: Cancer gets Jobs

Q:Who makes jokes about Steve Jobs being dead?!
A: iDon't.

They say your life flashes before your eyes just before you die.Unfortunately for Steve Jobs, he hadn't got a Flash player installed.

10 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs.Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.

Co-Creator of Apple getting killed by something with the initials 'PC', that's iRonic

On the moon we do not use your primitive computers. We have thinking slaves, and when we require calculations we beat them with tire irons until they produce the correct result.

He would have offered better marketing with less functionality. This is the dumbest non-wingnut headline I've ever seen, people who buy into the Jobs cult of personality are some of the dumbest in the country.

The headline made me think of organ transplant teams digging up Steve Jobs and putting a new pancreas in him, which is sort of a funny mental image until you realize there's probably a portion of his estate that is dedicated to that very activity.
