Steve Jobs
 
Lost his fight to cancer. His company has made some great things, he was truly an innovator. May he rest in peace.

Too young, only 56. Definitely one of the most innovative and influential people of his generation.

The man who basically invented the personal computer has just died, and you complain about your ipod not being able to hold enough of your illegally downloaded music?

All they did was put components in pretty boxes, added a pretty GUI, and sold it. They didn't do all that much.

yea, no

Not only did they bring manufacturing costs down so computers were accessible to the lower and middle class, they also established one of the most successful marketing campaign in history. Creating a GUI is not considered "all that much"? Even though nearly every single operating system now uses one?

I'm not an apple fanboy by any stretch, but I do recognize what he has done to the computer industry... especially out of his garage.

Edit: spelling

Yeah, you don't need to be an Apple fan to acknowledge Jobs and
his company have influenced the high tech industry. Not just personal computers, but digital music and smartphones as well.

I just heard a radio news show report on where and how all Apple products are made...yes you guessed it it the typical huge sweatshop factories
in CHINA of course...According to this report the working conditions are so bad the UPPER FLOORS OF THESE FACTORIES ACTUALLY HAVE PLASTIC
WEBBINGS AROUND THE BUILDINGS FOR EACH FLOOR, to foil the suicide attempts by the wretched workers who are driven mad by what they must endure..I swear I have not made this fact up..
So to conclude while the components cost and total manufacturing costs for thier products are surely about equal of competing pc ect products,
Apple thrives generating much higher profits based on thier unjustly higher markups, which they command thanks to idiot consumers who percieve
Apple stuff to be 'cool" To conclude while IMHO Steve Jobs clearly was a brilliant buisnessman , not a technical genius..certainly NO NICOLA TESLA!
And if Steve Jobs were a AMERICAN PATRIOT he would have kept or brought back the many thousands of manufacturing jobs to the US..
But then in fairness surely one could level the same charge at Bill Gates, as well as the ceo's of the rest of the major US pc compainies,
Dell, HP and so forth..

Radio news show? you wouldn't be talking about Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck would you? Because they were talking some crap this morning. The suicide stuff was going on at Foxconn, who makes components for nearly every other electronic consumer product. These people are not being forced to work in these factories.

American patriot... so utilizing the right to free trade doesn't make someone a patriot? Americans are forgetting the meaning of that word.

you forgot they did a lot to stifle innovation including trying to patent other peoples ideas, and sued anyone that made anything that even remotely might have looked like something they made, or sound like something they think they came up with. Including things that had 4 rounded corners like samsungs tablet, and amazon for using the term appstore(which was used way prior to apple even making an ipod in early 2000)... Or my favorite sueing microsoft back in 94 over windows GUI, apple licensed from xerox and tried claiming they created it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_C...ft_Corporation)...

They also innovated telling you what you can put on what you purchased ;) Try getting an app for the iphone that apple didn't like without jailbreaking(and voiding your waranty) it ;)

Also dunno where "Not only did they bring manufacturing costs down so computers were accessible to the lower and middle class, " there computers were always more expensive than IBM's, or commodor's, and still are way more expensive than other PC's with the same exact specs (outside the apple logo on the cover, and running that POS OS).

The Apple II was cheaper than any IBM at the time, and the commodore was a piece of crap. Yes, the Apple Lisa was $10,000... but the comparable Xerox Alto was $17,000.

I like how everyone completely ignores all the other reasons apple has sued Samsung.

http://www.techdirt.com/blog/wireles...diculous.shtml

The Galaxy tab being shaped by like the ipad was only a very small part of it. Everyone shifts their attention to apple because of this. Never mind Microsoft suing the **** out of Google for patent infringement, and Google buying up tons of patents, then selling them to patent trolls who turned around and attacked apple. You do know that HTC has to pay Microsoft $20 for every phone they sell right? Yeah, Apple has been all over the headlines the past year or so... but that is no reason to completely blow off all they have achieved over the years.
