I wonder what his reaction was to the fact that SO MANY Chinese people in his iPhone factories jump out the window SO frequently that they installed suicide nets. THAT is insane.
"Apple profits up 124% year-on-year after record iPhone sales"..........

"Apple sold 20.34 million iPhones last quarter, a 142% growth from just a year ago"..........

"Apple posts record quarter on sales of 20 million iPhones, 9 million iPads"..........

"The Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn is the single largest exporter from China. It manufactures high-end equipment for Apple, Dell, HP, Nintendo, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola"..........

His reaction is the same as most electronic consumers in the world.
Just don't care.

We have all helped these guys get rich by buying their products and getting addicted to them. What would u do without your computer or other electronics that you use today? Sometimes it pays to be a geek and their inventions paid off for them. I don't know anything personally about Steve Jobs, but he's dead now, that's enough reason for me to NOT put him down. You shouldn't talk about the dead, it could come back to bite you in the ass.
The only thing I know about Bill Gates is, if it weren't for him, I wouldn't be on my computer right now. We wouldn't have a Windows program or any of the other products he has invented. You want to complain about how 'rich' and 'powerful' these men have become, but WE are the ones that made them this way. WE are the ones that cannot live without the 'newest' technology that's out there.
I'm not a genius, a computer geek, or uppity rich person. I'm just a country girl from a small town in Ohio that believes in common sense. I don't put rich people down, I sit back and think to myself "Damn I wish I had thought of that."
Just because he was smart doesn't mean he wasn't also a dihkhead. How a man treats his children and his women says a lot about him as a person. His presence isn't one that I'll be missing.

You can thank Carl Steinmetz, Mathamatican for inventing electricity and transmitting from Niagra Falls. He suffered the humilization of republicans walking by his house with lights on and considering him crazy. Sence his was the only house with lights at the time. GE bought the salvage he worked at meanial wages to run the company.

Incredible! Steve Jobs looked very much like my late father who also passed away in his mid-50s. The only difference is that Dad had a full head of hair.

I am a PC. I do not own one product from apple. However, I will say that Steve Jobs was a visionary. He revolutionized the way we work. You can say all you want about apple but that man was a genius. May his legacy live on.

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address


Who can deny that Steve Jobs changed our world? Yet, his biological mother chose to give him up for adoption rather than have an abortion. His life was short and he died younger than the average American, yet his life impacted each and every one of us. Imagine how different our world would be if Steve Jobs mother has exercised her legal “choice” to have an abortion.

Too many women are lied to and taken advantage of by abortion mills whose only goal is expanding their profit margin. Abortion mills hire useful idiots to counsel/ convince vulnerable, frightened women that destroying the baby in their wombs will solve all their problems. The organizations who defend abortion are generally the very same ones who rake in huge profits. Live and learn.

Yup.
I chuckle when someone complains about the abuse of Chinese labor for the iPhone and don't even know that their own phone/tablet was made at the same place.

Don't forget BPA causing the majority of breast cancer. There have been cancer cures for years and people are still running for breast cancer awareness, how about you run to force the FDA to allow you to be cured? And then run to create awareness as to WHY breast cancer has increased so much. Going to be a lot of running.=/
I wouldn't be surpised if all the drugs the 60s/70s generation pumped into their bodies doesn't have a lot to do with it. You know that stuff was loaded with pesticides and toxins.
