    I'm not sure about much in life, but of this I'm certain: Steve Jobs would not have been impressed with this sort of behaviour.



    There are people who feel compelled to express their judgment of others, whether about Steve Jobs or other forum members. That's always going to exist on Internet forums; you just have to accept that these people are out there and that forums are a convenient way for them to express their opinions. It usually says more about them than it does the subject they are posting about.

    You guys have to run to buy the next Apple product because they already said it was the "last Steve product"... and then they will say Steve made more calls about the next products after the next products...

    I was saying "piss off" to those judging how he spent his last days. Steve was entitled to both work and spend time with family. And he did. How in the heck can you not applaud that? He lived his life to the end. I assume you misunderstood the intent of what I was writing. In which case, my bad for not being clearer. Otherwise, well, don't get me started.

    You make it sound like Apple was not his family.

    Apple was his baby. If a loving parent is dying and they have a child who loves them the parent will be there for the child till their last breath. Steve was there not only for apple but for us till his last moments. Or should I say the day before he died. True dedication. See you at the mother ship Steve.

    Steve/Apple didn't let much slip about his critical condition until after the fact. Maybe this was just another part of that. Not to pooh pooh on this, but IMO its better to think he spent all day with his family anyways.

    I think what people fail to recognise is the fact that Steve would have invited Tim to his home that day, Tim would have been wearing a shirt and jeans while sitting down in Steve's bedroom. It's not like Steve was driving off to Apple HQ to meet Tim.



    I mean, if I had an Insanely Great® idea on my deathbed for a product that would affect millions of people, I'd desperately want to call the CEO and tell him what I wanted to say.



    True dedication.

    I'm quite sure it's been widely reported that he had been at home most of the previous few weeks prior to his passing. But don't let that stop you from taking a swipe.

    No, too creepy. It would remind me of the Dixie Flatline (McCoy Pauley) with his "machine-gun laughter".

    Not that it really matters, but I think it is highly unlikely that Tim Cook went to talk to Steve Jobs about a project. The call was almost certainly to inform TIm Cook that the end was now very, very near. Having seen patients die of cancer, including pancreatic cancer, I highly doubt he was in that good a shape 24 hours before he passed.



    Nonetheless, Steve Jobs worked closer up to his death productively than most people would likely ever be capable of. Incredible discipline! Even at his last appearance, I think it was before the Cupertino city presenting the new building, he was likely already incredibly sick, and just held it together phenomenally.



    Lastly, I thought it was curious that during the 4S announcement, all of the executives wore a black T-shirt under their usual garb, when previously they have not. This seemed me to be already an expression of mourning, or subtle tribute to SJ and his black turtleneck.



    What a sad month, it almost feels like a close friend or family member died, even though I never met Steve.

Maybe I'm cynical but I think Cook just gave Son the easy answer to get off the phone to deal with a personal matter.



    you're an idiot

    Posting a perfectly logical hypothesis about the true state of affairs when the publicly stated result sounds atypical of the last 25 years of the way that Apple Computer Inc. does business?



    Yep. He's certainly that word that will likely get you timed out.

    If was aware that his time left was very short, spending time on the iPhone 4S instead of with his family is absolutely inexcusable.



    yet another fk'n idiot who just doesn't get it... he was with his family you moron... you self-righteous dick...
