Good Riddance Steve Jobs
,----[ Quote ]
| But no, it wasn't Gandhi, nor indeed anyone of even the slightest nobility. It
| was a patent extortionist with an apparent objection to altruism, called Steve
| Jobs. Even El Presidente fawned over this selfish racketeer, like he was the
| new messiah, or something...
| According to the CIA World Factbook, 160,521 people die every day. Steve Jobs
| was just one of them.
| I bet very few of the other 160,520 people who died that day ever made
| sinister threats to âgo afterâ an altruistic software project like Theora, or
| ran around suing everyone for making ârounded rectanglesâ and âgreen phone
| iconsâ. I bet they also donated a helluva lot more to charity than Jobs too,
| given that he apparently had some kind of objection to it, which is sort of
| like having an objection to love and compassion. Or how about the time Jobs
| bribed the police to act like they were his private security agency, to kick
| down the front door to a journalist's home, seize his property and interrogate
| him like a criminal, just because of some crap iGadget accidentally lost by an
| Apple employee, after that journalist had already voluntarily contacted Apple
| and returned it to them?
| So given the sort of monster Steve Jobs was, witnessing the spectacle of
| everyone from Joe Blogs to El Presidente gushing over him, like a bunch of
| schoolgirls at a rock concert, is absolutely sickening.
| As for being a âvisionaryâ ... the only âvisionâ Jobs ever had was the one he
| nicked from Xerox PARC. From that point forward he made a career out of
| shamelessly stealing others' ideas, shoehorning them into shiny but otherwise
| dysfunctional and DRM-infested toys, then branding an Apple logo on them
| (ironically also nicked, from the Beatles). And then to add insult to
| plagiarism, Jobs fraudulently stamped his âIPâ seal on those âshamelessly
| stolenâ ideas, then embarked on a hypocritical and vicious rampage of
| litigation. How's that for gratitude? Add that to the litany of virtues Jobs
| didn't subscribe to.
