May the Lord have mercy on him.
Why is it shocking? The man was very sick and everyone who watches the news knew it.
Anyway, the real reason for my post is to talk about some of the tributes to him. The tone and choice of words make it sound like they are talking about Jesus Christ himself! The man who changed the world!
Yes, he was good at making products that were neat and had a good design. He didn't invent anything new. He copied, borrowed and repackaged, like Bill Gates, but with better style and taste! I particularly admire his desire to put user experience first.
So why do I feel dirty when read all these articles talking about him like was the Messiah? Are they just fanboys or is this something else? I'd love to hear other peoples comments.
I hope this does not offend anyone. I apologize in advance if so.
PS: For the purpose of full disclosure, I own an iphone 3G, 4, iPod and MacBook so I am NOT a Apple/Jobs hater.
