I'm sure everybody know by know, but yesterday, after struggling with cancer for years, at the age of 56(!) Steve Jobs passed away.

He was the person that made the iPods ubiquitous, and with them, the AAC format.

I would surely miss him.

RIP/QEPD.

Apple could have kept much of their production in the US and continued to make a profit.

Steve Jobs has been a lot of things to a lot of people but he was no patriot to his country. While this wasn't his duty, nor was striving to at least appear to give a shit about basic human rights, I'd like to think he could have been a bit more idealistic in this regard. These are qualities I would like to see in those to whom homage is paid as heroes. To me he was a successful capitalistic businessman; he was an icon, no question. I'll go farther and say he was probably a good guy, seeing that I have no reason to think he ever did anything personally wrong to his friends or family. I just feel that people should not wear blinders when looking back on these things, not when there may be a bigger lesson to be learned. I will not be one of the ones masturbating about how awesome he was.

Perhaps my standards are too high, but just as well. I am clearly no saint nor am I particularly religious, but having absolutely no qualms throwing stones at glass houses, please allow me to leave my post with a quote from the book of Matthew, as well as a question to ponder.

"...Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Would the man those attribute lord and savior approve of the work of Steve Jobs?

Out of respect for those who would hold these things sacred, I do not assume to know the answer with any certainty.
