What a beautiful mind we have lost, he was so ahead of his time. You have to wonder just what more innovative hi tech ideas he would have come up with had not his life been cut so short. May he rest in peace and God keep his soul.

I completely agree "Idy." If I pause for a moment I can recall that Mr. Jobs came up with the idea for the personal computer and the mouse. I and my children (now in college) take his inventions for granted because they have become the fabric of our day-to-day lives. Not to worry, I have heard that Apple has inventions in the pipeline that will not be ready to come to market for another 2 or 3 years. Nevertheless, that "beautiful mind" will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.

But wasn't he a "capitalist"? Why all the eulogies? Particularly in this socialist valley, it's hard to understand why anyone thought he was so bright and came up with some stuff that helps communication around the world.

Unless he was a politically correct capitalist?

Jobs created plenty of negatives to go with his idealistic positives.

He was able to resurrect Apple from the ashes twice. As a business leader he did well, better than most of these so called CEO's.

Recent success and all the i-Devices are manufactured most notably in China. That means lower costs for Apple and more profits. It means fewer jobs for US workers.

Apple has created plenty of landfill and environmental issues with their products.

Apple's rise in popularity of i-Devices has demolished many competing companies and eliminated those jobs in the process.

Apple historically has made a better product, but it came at an enormous cost and was intended purely for the end user toying around and not the tinkerers or next startup person to revolutionize computing.

As far as politics, Jobs was a very liberal Democrat - self described. He gave to campaigns:

Jobs however, did not give to non profits and similar tax-exempt entities. He spoke out about doing such. That's odd considering his very left leanings are what many non profits are and who creates/operates such.
