I’m curious as to what the reaction would have been had it been Bill Gates instead of Steve Jobs?
Both were giants, regardless of which side you were on in the PC vs. Mac debate, certainly Bill Gates would have deserved all of the kudos that Steve Jobs received.
But somehow I don’t think that would have been the case.
To those hanging out in front of Apple stores:
Get. A. Life.
Well, considering all the scumbags people seem to adore in this country, they can do worse than mourning someone who epitomized American individualism, ingenuity, and entrepeneurism. He did what he did as a private citizen, not as some government wanker.
These people are commuting back and forth from the the Infest Wall Street protest!
And Jobs was not a god but a brilliant albeit ruthless business man.
“Both were giants, regardless of which side you were on in the PC vs. Mac debate, certainly Bill Gates would have deserved all of the kudos that Steve Jobs received.

Good point. I suppose it’s in part because the gadgets Gates invented didn’t become objects of idolatry by millions of shallow worshippers.
"He was a man, take him for all in all, we shall not look upon his like again."
But I agree, the crying and the competition for most grieving fan is typical baby boomer angst and emotionalism..
And to put it mildly, which one of the two would have scored more with the chicks?
I tend to agree with you.
Given the adoration for all the idiot celebrities and sports figures we find these days in the USA, it’s almost heartwarming to see a relentless capitalist get some love from the youngsters.
At the passing of the Apple Founder, it has been determined it’s just another “Job” lost...
I agree with both of you.
JOBS.... A three letter word...... J-O-B-S
I also need to mention that when people have no God, they will still find someone to worship.
Better Steve Jobs than Lady Gaga, Tiger Woods, or Michael Jackson.
I never heard that, do you have some references?
He did have pancreatic cancer.
In 10 years it will be Steve who?
MP3 players will be in the same junk box with 8 tracks.
iPAD & MacBook will be piled in the same corner with 286 computers.
Pixar may be the only lasting technology as it evolves into
lifelike photoshop animation to totally eliminate actors and sets.
He’s dead, Jim.
Now pick up the pieces of your shattered lives and move along.
