Wow. This came as a shock. 65. I think that struck a chord. Same age as me but eight-months older.

Never met him and really never knew too much about him. Knew he was the real brains behind Microsoft and that he was a genuine philanthropist. Did NOT realize he never married or had any kids.

He always came across as a decent bloke. Nicer than Bill, I think.

Shame. All that wealth and it couldn’t save him from cancer. Eerily similar to Steve Jobs. What is it with this? Have you given it any thought?

It is the END of an era. PCs, Windows and Microsoft are no longer new or ‘recent’. They have all reached old age..

Paul Gardner Allen (1953 – 2018), RIP

Still seems hard to believe that he is not here!

I think Steve would have had lot to say (and do) IF he was around today — given that the iPhone, that he wrought, has been key to so much of today’s social climate. The iPhone has changed the trajectory of human civilization — and I, for one, am not sure whether it was for the better.

Notwithstanding, we all owe a huge debt to Mr. Steve Jobs. He was an exceptional man in so many dimensions.

I miss Steve.

Just 6-years ago. Time flies.

Apple, Tim Cook — Charlottesville & Neo-Nazis/White Supremacists: What Would Steve Jobs Have Done?

by Anura Guruge


Click here for ‘Market Watch’ original
bar my added graphics.

Origina from ‘Market Watch’. See above. I added two graphics. Click to ENLARGE and read here.


Following the frightening spectre of Charlottesville and Donald Trump’s, hard to fathom, reaction I wondered how Tim Cook would react. I was HOPING he would use his PLATFORM to repudiate the President.

I kept on thinking: ‘what would Steve Jobs have done?

I would like to think that Steve Jobs would have been more demonstrative and vocal.

To be fair to Tim Cook these donations are a GOOD START but still wholly inadequate. Apple can afford BILLIONS not millions. Mobilize the platform, exploit the popularity. I am sure Steve Jobs would have done more. Trump would have offended Steve’s finely cultivated sensibilities.

Please Tim Cook — DO MORE.

We need folks like you to stand up.

Amazing!


Amazing in every way.

That he would still only be 62 today is amazing. He is younger than I.

That he has been dead for 5.5 years is amazing. That long? Feels like it was just yesterday.

He was just 56 years old. Amazing.

Take a second to reflect.

Everything about Steve Jobs is amazing.
