But it's not enough to just have that, it also has to be that the thing you are persuading people about is technically doable, and that was the difference between her and Jobs.I saw Bad Blood in the bookshop about a week ago and have been waiting to finish my current book before buying it.

Chinese have planted tech stealers in Universities research labs, defense and other high tech corporations,hacking through government sponsored, just every which way you can steal and cripple country like America's future economy.You just don't have be worry about Russians but lot more so of Chinese, way more.
This is guy was probably a Chinese government spy from the beginning. Something very drastic has to be done about this. Stories like this one have been happening for WAY too long. They steal American technology and later they either show up selling it back to us in their products (and they get rich from our own work), or using it against us in military weapons.
Maybe the US should block entry, or severely limit, to any adult person coming from China. Our national security and economic prosperity depends on it.

Why can't Tim just donate his own money and not having to donate Apple's? If he were a real mensch he'd do it anonymously.
