    Which dad?



    But, anyway, you should be so lucky to use an Android phone: you would finally be able to e.g. watch Youtube Flash files on your Android phone or tablet. And you would be able to dictate instead of type your input (emailing, texting, Googling, word processing, navigating, etc.). With your precious iPhone you're not.

    'Funny', that, because otherwise Apple's walled garden iPhones are for the simpler smartphone users of course. 'Funny', because they, especially, would benefit from voice input features (and we would be reading much more normal grammar instead of jive; it wouldn't solve the absence of interpunction or capital letters though; yet).



    However, if Steve's biological father's 'Syrian pride' prevents him from picking up the phone he knows full well what he can do: ditch the fucking 'Syrian pride'! But he doesn't. OK, that's his conscious choice. He's a grown man. Without any sense, to be sure, but still a grown man with his rights to his choices. He'll have to live, and die, with the consequences. It is clear his 'Syrian pride' is more important to him than meeting his son. So he should quit whining. Unless that is also part of his 'Syrian pride' of course.

    Steve certainly does not need him. Who needs a dead-beat hypocrite dad who still chooses his fig leaf 'Syrian pride' over his son?



    If I were Steve I'd avoid this asshole like the plague.

    The Oprah Special of this would be the highest-rating in her history. Luckily that's not how Steve rolls.



    Steve, wishing you blessings for you and your family, whatever your paths may be.

    I giggled. Thank you for that



    I can't remember the last time I landed on a web site or video that required flash. It might have been for a movie trailer. I think I just hopped on over to Apple Trailers after that. I must not be very lucky.

    If Steve hadn't been raised by Mr. & Mrs. Jobs, Steve Jandali would have ended up being a cab driver for a living, or working for a 7-11

    Yes, it does.

    I also think that people who adopt their babies away are only one step above people who throw their babies in the trash can and they have zero right to ever meet their offspring which they abandoned.



    Most of the time, adoption is the answer to give the child a better life because the parent understands they will not be able to provide for them properly. They do it for the child's own good, and Steve Jobs is a perfect example of the child turning out for the better.



    Perhaps someone should have thrown you into a trash can as an infant, you hateful waste.

    Yeah, and he waits till his 80 and managing a casino to attempt to cash in. Good one.



    Whyndo Apple users become so defensive of Steve. I find it rather odd.

    The ASSumptions put forth are amazingly ignorant.

    I am not sure how much of what he's saying is sincere, but my take is that he was more or less forced to give Steve up for adoption. And he fully acknowledges he is not his "dad" (beyond biological), not after his money, and just wants to have a cup of coffee.

    Next time read the article before posting. You won't be considered a complete fool that way.

    he seems to have left.



    maybe he realized how much of a *censored* (repeated many times over) he is.



    That is not an appropriate response, but it is the only one i can think of right now.



    All i have to say is that all the people who commented besides Apple ][, because the large majority rejected his views, that as someone who was adopted and know knows a "birth parent" and has understood what it took to get the adoption done.

To me that's a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, and *selfless* decision.



    Well said.

    The possessive form of Steve's last name is "Jobs's" not "Jobs'" ? and true for any singular noun ending is "s".



    Think it doesn't matter? Say "nuclear" for me.

    I am so angry at this birth father. I was adopted 67 years ago and if I wanted to find my father I'd find him - especially if I had the money of Steve Job.

    For the biological father to bring this out into the public sphere and try to put pressure on Steve is beyond reasonable it is self serving and self centered - not someone Steve needs in his life at this time - or any time! What a jerk.

    If I were Steve I'd not acknowledge this man. Steve's real parents (his adopted parents) gave him the space to grow into himself. What a gift! We are all grateful to them.
