The guy has cancer and is probably dying.

Show a little fu*#ing respect.

laomei's picture

when he dies, they'll release a special edition iphone.  it'll cost four times as much, have a fake signature on the front, be completely black and have a cancerous rectum embossed on the back that you can tongue

Don't be an asshole. respect is earned here.

laomei's picture

I have a family member with cancer. He is probably checking out soon, so I can understand one's sorrow over Steve's condition.

However, I wonder how many tears Jobs shed for the workers over at FOXCOMM? Did he do anything to make their suffering any better?

Cdad's picture

On point.  America's top Chinese labor exploiter and US jobs exporter.  I do not understand the love affair with this guy.

laomei's picture

iphiles dont need rational thought getting in the way of their pathetic consumerist lives.

snowball777's picture

Yeah, they should be trolling ZH and attempting to spread their inability to feel compassion for others far and wide.

laomei's picture

back in 2004 my grandpa had cancer and needed a new liver, he had many years left in him.  funny how not being rich doesn't get you a new liver pronto.  he died in pain and agony lingering on for a year.

 

name just one actual "good" thing jobs gave the world... because i can list of tons of fucking horrible shit his corpse is leaving in its wake.

malikai's picture

NeXT, for starters. Too bad it didn't work out.

Nevertheless, I'm with you. Jobs is a billionaire. That's the only reason he got that liver, and the only reason he's alive today.

Fuck you and your "grandpa"

If Grnadpa had made more of himself he would have been on the front of the donor list.

Instead he spawned losers like you with nothing to show for it.

Apple I-phone vs. laomei.  Think Ill take the i phone

Hey, if you can take your head out of Steve Job's ass for a moment, maybe 'ol Grandpa didn't have wealthy parents to forks out the $57,000 a year to go to Reed College - like Steve Job's adopted parents did.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_jobs#Early_years

 

"Made something of himself" - or born with an advantage, it seems that your iodolisation of the capitalist is possibly misleading.

 

Funny how all these 'self made millionaires' usually start with an advantage - do Americans still buy that 'American dream' crap where 'everyone has an equal chance'?

 

It's the most unequal of societies and it's getting worse. People who fan the asses of the wealthy are adding to the problem, and all because they suck up the dream which is over a long time ago.

malikai's picture

Everyone does have an equal chance. Only, some have a more equal chance than others.

:laomei; in the world of 2011AD all computers pretty much suck. Apple computers just suck less than all the rest of them. The reason is KISS. They continually aim to streamline and simplify whereas the dufus at Microsoft seeks to employe every hacker from every country around the world to increase the complexity and thus the confusion factor among the end user. You can tell who the PC users are because they are always angry.

"name just one actual "good" thing jobs gave the world"

The Apple II - Millions of programmers were inspired to learn how to write code

The Mac - Billions of graphic artists were empowered to create awesome works

And...what have you given the world (besides the nausea you inspire)?

laomei's picture

apple II? Woz designed it

mac? engineering and design team led by raskin

 

all jobs has done is rip off ideas from others and go crazy about frivilous patents which inhibit the entire industry while shoving away all those who actually deserve the real credit.  he's an asshole, pure and simple.

Oh regional Indian's picture

lao, while maybe not so expletive laden, I agree with you completely. Strange that so many here are offfended by the celebration of the passing (at least from active duty) of a totally sociopathic (yes, he is sub-human when dealing with his people, ruled with fear) guy whose big break was stealing technology from Xerox to make his stuff sexy. On top of that, he shafted hsi first partner, who was the man behind any of the tech anyways.

On top of that, those white apple ear-buds have driven an entire generation deaf and probably a little in-sane.

And yet, here are a bunch of so called libertarians getting their panties in a twist.

Quick everyone, grab your sacred cow! Now!

Right here, right now, requesting reinstatement of the "flag as junk" button.

Given a long enough timeline.....

fyrebird's picture

What have you done? Anything besides breathe? And when you die, will anyone notice the loss? Even enough to cast gross insults? Probably not.

Enjoy eternity. It's a long fucking way down, from here.

laomei's picture

rich boy becomes richer man... exactly why should anyone give even half a shit about a slavedriving psychopath finally dying.

Zeilschip's picture

I don't give a shit about what you are thinking so just shut up already ok?

Votewithabullet's picture

You think anyone gives a fuck what you think? I vote you...shut the the fuck up ok?

homersimpson's picture

I will show him as much respect as he shows the general person.. none. If he wasn't the head of Apple, he'd just be another a**hole on the street. Somehow techies in the Bay Area equate money with coolness and respect.

VisualCSharp's picture

I think what happens is a lot of folks revere him because he is something they can never be, in their minds, at least. People are envious of Steve Jobs, and therefore how can one hate what one is envious of?

delacroix's picture

steve wozniak, was the one with heart

snowball777's picture

A very cool dude, in his own Woz way.

laomei's picture

most definitely agree with you there.  look at their respective bios.  woz is a fucking machine and the one with all the coolness.

 

jobs? he's a megalomaniac manipulator with zero fucking heart.  take a hint from how he immediately kills all philanthropy when he comes back to apple.  look at his patents and how most of them are for accessorized crap.  woz? he's got the most amazing patents and owes credit to no one else for them... why? because he is fucking awesome.  jobs didn't inspire shit, he hired talent demanded it look pretty and took all the credit (and money) all the while being an elitist prick.  perfect example of what's wrong with america.

Ok, Gates dies when his Jet's OS bluescreens and Elison gets his in a tragic Marlin spearing incident...

snowball777's picture

I was kind of hoping for poetic justice where Ellison would be burned alive by a wildfire over the giant compound for which he stiffed CA on the prop taxes.

Hulk's picture

Most definitely works for me. But the imagery of being speared by a leaping Marlin was irresistable...

laomei's picture

difference being of course... gates and ellison would be missed for actual real reasons.  gates? ellison?  they basically plan to give away all their money to good causes.  jobs? haha, fat fucking chance there.

malikai's picture

I'm sure the US government has some very noble plans for the billions they will make off his estate on his passing.
