    I had imagined he died more like David Carradine.

    You're fucked up. Stop mocking people here.

I'm fine now but even unconscious I was having recurring nightmares. That stuff should remain private.



    There is discretion to consider, but you seem to be against her releasing any last words, with or without his consent, not something intimate or unreasonably personal, like passwords.



    For all we know his last words were part of his last marketing tactic or maybe it was an inappropriate "Control-Alt-Delete" or maybe he was staying crazy stuff like you were with his last words being not being ""OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW." but an embarrassing "JWoww. JWoww. JWoww." I'd hope my family would do a slight rewrite in my favour if that last one were to happen.

    "Oh wow" sounds exactly the same as "Oh, ow!" . How could she tell the difference?

    Maybe because she heard it and you didn't?

    They don't place the AdSense ads.

    As Tim Cook said "Steve, we will miss you forever."

    It's why I hate it when sites like PC Mag, eWeek, ZDNET, CNET and their likes write about this. Their commenters are full of cold, heartless, immature people who can't for once in their life, leave the hate and immaturity and pay respects to an amazing person.

    This post has been reported and hopefully will be removed. It mocks Steve and diminishes his true nature. Steve would have not liked this and no I am not thinking what would Steve do. Lets say Tim Cook would see this as vulgar as with the rest of us.

    I don't get those people at all. They have this expectation that for any accomplish to be valued it has to be backed by no flaws or failures in character or judgment. I say that accomplishments should be valued because of the ever present risk of failure. We still, despite not being perfect, have the ability to make choices that make others happy, that make lives better.

    See you on the other side.

    That was so moving. Thanks Mona for sharing your eulogy with us. I really hope that you write a book reminiscing about your time with your beloved brother and his family. I am sure millions of his fans will be extremely grateful.

    My God, it's full of stars! Steve, you will be taken care of in the next evolution of your consciousness. Hope to see you again in person, if that be the will of the universe. The closest I got to you was one auditorium away in Moscone centre.

    Perhaps the most successful business leaders in the modern age was driven by love and beauty.



    We have a highly dysfunctional global economy driven by short sighted selfishness and money grubbing greed. The byproducts of this dysfunction are deep and wide. We should be moving rapidly into the Space Age, but we are stuck with things like perpetual war, mass starvation and extinction, irreparable toxicity contaminating the deepest caves and the highest clouds, entrenched servitude to the working class lifestyle, and slowly building climate change.



    But the conventional wisdom is that the profit motive, selfishness, greed, are the things that will drive the best economic outcome.



    How ironic, and profound.



    Hopefully over time Steve Jobs will be studied not as a technologist, but as a business leader who saw that the bigger picture is not a dream for hippies, but is integral to achieving true positive outcomes.



    sigh

    Wow some of you are just nucking futs over this guy. I just read the book. Sure he was smart, and he was a master of salemanship if there ever was one. In the field of computers he stood out easily amongst the Woz's and Gate's type nerds, which was not hard.



    However, (if you read the book) he is not someone I would have been friends with. He shit all over lots of people and did it in a horrible way all the time. People die everyday and its sad, epecially if they were a good person. While I feel sorry for his family and bummed he wont be around to do more things, I am not sad because we lost a wonderful, nice guy.
