Judge bars dead Steve Jobs from appearing on TV news FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE


Re: Nothing So Rare As Common Sense

The guy is dead, of a particularly nasty condition. You might not have agreed with his (highly successful) business practices, you might not have liked his personality and dress sense.

^^^^ This.

I have an old iPod Nano that Apple replaced years after I stopped using it due to short battery life, for a little iPod Shuffle. That's all I have ever bought from Apple, so it's not like I'm a fanboi.

Jobs may or may not have been an asshat to work for: It's a free country so anyone not liking working for him could simply leave and join someone elses company, or start their own. He was certainly a very talented and driven individual, and I think any impartial weighing of his life would have to indicate that his contribution to the world was significantly positive.

Those wishing to malign the dead should perhaps first consider their own legacy?
