I never liked what he standed for, but I must reckon he was a genious of his own. I already knew the video you posted and it's inspirational at least.

I hope noone takes this the wrong way, but well, british humour is a class of its own so I'll take my chances:

"Steve Jobs reaches Heaven.
His first words: iDied."

Never been a fan of the Apple brand to be honest, as from what i have seen there have always been better and cheaper alternative products that suited my needs more.

but R.I.P to the man anyways.

Steve Jobs vowed to 'destroy' Android
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15400984

my problem with Apple is that they became far too controlling and imho as anti-competitive as Microsoft ever were but get away with it because of the positive view of their brand within the media (big users of Apple products).

they are also trying to kill Flash (a great technology) by not supporting it on any of their devices.

iOS only runs on Apple hardware and their apps can only be sold by Apple who therefore control which apps are allowed to be developed. sod that... give me Android any day.

Hi Superfrank

You may be right.

Jobs probably didn't become a multi-billionaire just by giving the public great products at affordable prices!

And for all the bad press Bill Gates gets, let's not forget that he's probably one of the biggest charity donors in history...

Steve Jobs Appears To Have Protected His Estate With Living Trusts
http://www.forbes.com/sites/trialandhei ... ng-trusts/

His 35% estate tax will raise around $2.6Bn. Given that the US is currently borrowing around $150Bn a month just to pay her bills that money will cover about half a day's overspending... 'puts the financial crisis into some sort of perspective.
:shock:

it's a shame. Flash took the internet experience forward in a big way. I refuse to buy Apple products.

Me too. Apple products are supposed to have unparalleled internet security safety.

I wonder if anyone with Betfair security issues has an Apple laptop etc.
