I think it has more to do with the fact that the average reporter has no idea who Bill Atkinson is.
They very well may have been there but it was not reported.

While I think having respect for Steve is important I think it's also important to remember that memorial services are for the living. Particularly his family. The departed either don't care anymore or have gained a heavenly understanding, depending on your point of view. Some of the names on the list raised an eyebrow for me but oh well. My thoughts are with his family. When a person close to you passes away it's common to see things all around us that remind us of them. Steve's face is everywhere right now and you can't turn on the tv surf the web or listen to the radio without either hearing about him or seeing one of his creations. Got to be tough.

"Elitist scum"? Really? Care to elaborate?

On second thought, don't bother.

Jonny Ive wasn't invited?????

What a slap in the face.

The guy was close to Steve and brought his visions to life in hardware form. The one man who was seen personally around Steve was Jonny and he is largely responsible for the "curb appeal" of apple's products, which are universally seen as the best deisgns in the industry - even when they are five years old. Then the new ones come out and set the timeless bar again.

He should have been invited more than any of the people on that list.

The reality of things are, I think, a little simpler: in life there are people who do something and people who do not. People who do nothing perceive the abilities and contribuitions of those who do as both a threat and as a form of control, and in a sense that's true: when all you do is live in a world entirely constructed by the work and contributions of others, you really are controlled by them. That doesn't mean controlling your destiny is what they set out to do, however; your lack of control is a symptom of your inaction.

Tell that trash to the Jews at Holocaust. Or the original slaves of Africa.

It isn't inaction that is always the culprit. Sometimes there are just more of them then there are of you. And they have bigger guns.

Sommon sense man. don't get all bent out of shape because some people have a difference of opinion with you over the moral decline of our leaders. It is what it is.

There are many of us who take action and sacrifice to do so. That doesn't guarantee a win.

Difference between "all" and "all the".

How exactly does that not make sense? (Which seems to be what you're implying)

That wasn't the complete guest list. We will probably never know exactly who attended. Perhaps Jonny was invited and decided not to attend. Perhaps he attended the family's private service on Friday the 7th and thought that was enough. Perhaps he was there but the reporter didn't recognize him. After all, Jonny Ive maintains a low profile.

It was a private memorial, we're not entitled to know the details of the event.

Oh, and you're not entitled to judge who should or shouldn't have been invited. It wasn't your event.

Update: Unsurprisingly, Jonny Ive was at the Sunday memorial service.

I think you confuse HP with Dell regarding the iPod, HP really did sell the iPod (under Carly Fiorina). I cannot remember Dell doing the same, I think Dell only tried their own HD-based music player.

I get the feeling people are jealous THEY didn't get invited to the memorial service...with their years of extolling the virtues of Apple, the cash spent on stock and helping the profit line of Apple, the fighting the good fight of Apple! They should of been invited before Michael Dell...or that Samsung guy!


Who cares who the family invited. Let's mourn the loss of one of the greatest tech innovators /motivators (if not greatest) of our time in peace.

Of our time? Most definitely the greatest. Hell probably of the last 100 years at least.

going by the info available at the time, it seemed that if tim cook was mentioned, obviously Ive would be too. and he wasn't then. I later read that Ive was there. and that is right.

Did I overreact? Possibly. But if he wasn't invited, it would be a travesty. Glad to know he was.

And speaking of entitlement, you are not entitled to judge me or to tell me what I am or am not entitled to. by the way, I felt entitled to tell you so...
