You have no idea what you are talking about.

Steve gave generously to certain groups, but very discreetly. The Woodside school district received a lot of contributions from Steve before the town started dicking him around over the preservation/demolition plans of the Jackling House. Finally, he said "enough is enough" and turned off the money spigot to the schools.

His wife Laureen was even more private than Steve, so it is likely that individually and as a couple, they were involved in other charitable gifting, although it was done very, very quietly.

She will get a pass because she isn't whining about lowering her taxes even though her tax rate is the lowest it has ever been in our Countries history.

What's the point? The world is already 67% overpopulated and all these charity crap just screws up population control.

Was that personally Windows or just the high IQ scientist who forgot to backup?

Maybe she wants to keep it because there's a high chance that we can see Reed Paul Jobs in the future.

Why not do what Bill Gates and others did?

Let's be real here ... Bill Gates isn't exactly living a paupers life ... just look at his 40,000+ sq floating house in Washington.

Look at what happens in countries where tax avoidance is a national pastime - and I'm not referring to the U.S. \

Ms. Powell will be nobody's fool.

Make no mistake... Steve Jobs' salary might have been $1 per year, but his yearly income was most certainly not. When you own significant amounts of capital, there are lots of ways to generate income that are totally outside the traditional system of wages or salary from employment.
