    Celebs love to bask in whatever hot in the news.. besides, the man flooded the market with cheaply made, overpriced products that are designed to self destruct. If he was honest with his products, he would not be a billionaire.

      Please get over it. He was human just like us. Smart and drive is what got him to where he was. Meanwhile, we have career welfare recipients just living off the of us that get up daily at 0440 and put in eight plus hours.

      The problem with people is, you cannot speak your mind without being labeled as jealous, mad, upset, hater.. etc etc.. did I sound mad at all?? All I said was the facts. If it cost you to $1 to make a product, and sell it for $100, this is legal, as long as you pay the taxes. But is it honest?? Is that straight?

    Steve Jobs was a visionary, he was creative and imaginative. I have many of Apple products none of which have given me any problems. I’v gone through several PC’s in the last 10 years and none can out shine Apple .
