    I wonder why God takes all the good ones like Steve Jobs...and still leaves us with Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, and Sarah Palin.

    You have someone visionary, bringing tangible positive change, someone who is brilliant in their vision and really gets it like Steve Jobs. This is someone who inspires and leads others to become better people.

    He was correct in pointing out Bachman and Palin, who seem to do more destruction than construction, and are contributing very little to society overall as people compared to Jobs.

    Nope, sorry, I don't care if someone disagrees with their politics, it's still a shitty thing to say. Sarah Palin is a wife, a mother of 5 children, a grandmother, out there fighting for what she believes in whether you agree with her or not. Michelle Bachman the same, not to mention having helped raise 22 Foster kids. I don't know much about Rick Perry, but he is several times elected to one of the biggest states in the USA as Governor, so he must be doing something right.

    OK, that is a good point. I think I was getting more at the impact that I see from the individuals, but you are correct.

    I didn't say anything bad about Perry incidentally icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm going to spam this in a couple of threads because its real important concerning Steve Jobs. We all knew this was coming and coming for years and there is so much to remember him by. This is one of the more important.

    Are you really surprised?



    No, but it still disappoints me to read things that are just nasty, mean-spirited, and unfair.

    Something I just found out about him is that we share a birthday. I thought that was pretty cool..anyways,while it's upsetting news we knew it would only be a matter of time before he passed because of his cancer. I really admired his business personality (some same he was demanding, but damn if he didn't get the job done) His contributions to technology will never be forgotten. Rest in peace...

    What are you going to do? It's pointless arguing with people who have differing opinions than your own regardless of the information you put forward.



    I'm not so much arguing as I am calling someone out on being mean-spirited and just plain nasty.

    a lot of people consider him a controversial (including me) figure but he was someone who did things his own way and you gotta appreciate things he's done

    Ironically his death is the same day as Dusshera, The celebration of the triumph of good over evil, but also a reminder that someone learned and benevolent could just as well be evil by virtue of the actions they perform. The Fire in Lanka got Raavan, The cancer got Jobs.... but just as well

    Thanks for the iPods and all the fun
    R.I.P. Steve Jobs

    P.S. Thanks for Finding Nemo icon_smile.gif

    Unfortunate, but not surprising, that some have to carry their bitter political attitudes by making or condoning comments in a thread remembering someone who had a huge impact. If RJ had a Wall of Shame, a couple would have earned their spots on it for a few weeks. Not having that feature, we just need to remember and not pay attention to those who don't warrant it.

    southbeach1500 saidIn the Technology forum, someone mentioned that he was an "evil industrialist."

    He does meet the criteria. He embodies what "the 99%" are protesting against, and he had it in spades, as Apple is one of the largest corporations on the planet.

    He also was responsible for offshoring much of the manufacturing of Apple products, at the loss of hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs.

    One of the main factories that produces Apple products in China, Foxconn, has had dozens of employees commit suicide due to the poor working conditions.

    His products are just as loaded with toxic plastics and poisonous metals as many other products produced on the planet.

    Yet, somehow, he managed to get the lefties to overlook all that and embrace Apple as some kind of "moral" corporation.

    Apple is no more or less moral than the vast majority of other corporations - including banks and oil companies.


    Apple is and will likely remain one of the most destructive corporations on the planet, but the Apple consumers and fanboys are responsible for creating this monster, not Steve Jobs. The guy died. Now isn't the time to be a d i c k about it, in my opinion.
