Yes, I've noticed that some people will actively choose to be wrong even when they're told of their error.
So… Steve Jobs WOULDN'T have done any of the things you've said he'd do, given that you're not accurate.
I don't think you understand what 'reality' is, and that's frightening.
This is just precious.
Your lack of insight on this just makes me shake my head. I wasn't joking.
Let me give you an example. Before I started working for IBM I worked for GE Captial which is the financial division of General Electric. At the time GE stock was around 90.00 a share and Jack Welch was CEO of General Electric. After he retired Jeffery Immelt took over and was hand picked by Welch. From that day on the downfall of GE has been put directly inline with the retirement of Welch.
I sold my stock when I left GE and I believe I sold it at 92.00 a share. It wasn't that long ago that GE stock dropped to around 5.00 a share and it was rumored that Immelt had to wear a bulletproof jacket Will this happen with Apple, well we don't know but if does everyone will be saying "what if Steve Jobs was alive". It's a very valid remark even if you don't believe it's valid.
Also another problem with the members of this forum they have a short memory. I believe Apple was founded on April 1, 1976. The first iPhone was released June 29th 2007. I can remember being on this forum in 2006 and the only thing these members could hold onto was the iPod numbers when they were released. For the vast majority of his years Steve Jobs was considered a failure. Apple almost when out of business and was seen as a grain of sand compared to Microsoft.
So lets not act like Apple has ruled the world forever and there is no chance they will ever fall from grace. General Motors, Microsoft, Dell, AIG, BOA, GE, and many others at one point were all seen as giants. Well we all know that is no longer true. History has proven time and time again when you are on top there is only one place to go.
So back on top with regards to this thread. If Apple maps didn't suck the members of this forum wouldn't be trying to take it as far off topic as possible pulling the typical Quadra move of posting links that have nothing to do with the topic. Well thats about it for now, sorry have to get back to work which appears to be a problem you don't have, which might explain your lack of insight.
