A good friend of mine, Brian Van Stralen, wrote this about Steve Jobs, I thought it was really interesting, so I thought I’d post it here. For the record, nothing in this is made up or false. All of this you can look up.
Steve Jobs was a cocksucker. Fuck anybody who calls him a hero. He was a narcissistic, egotistical, self-righteous, uncaring, shameless, short-tempered, fucknut and I could not be happier that he is dead. I don’t give one single fuck what anybody here has to say. Steve Jobs has openly admitted on several occasions that he directly steals ideas and engineering and makes them ‘better’. ‘Better’, in his mind was no more than adding useless features and making it more appealing to the eye. When criticized about this; he used special pleading in order to sound justified. Often, he would berate his employees and he would fire them without notices or warnings. He once fired one of his employees on stage as part of a presentation. When he returned to Apple in the 90s, he eliminated all philanthropy in the company and never brought it back. In 2006, he was confronted by the media about child labor that Apple was extorting. He claimed he had no idea that the issues were so severe and promised to change them as soon as he could. In 2009, reports had shown that not only had the conditions been ignored, but it had gotten much worse. One of the manufacturers was interrogated and beaten senseless by his superiors when he lost a prototype iPhone, and promptly committed suicide. Steve Jobs paid as much attention to this as the media wanted, and quickly forgot after the controversy died down. Steve Jobs revolutionized jack shit. He used his position in the mainstream to take Apple versions of already existing devices and make it appear that he had made it popular himself. I reiterate; I could not be happier that he is dead. The world is a little better now. You guys want to worship another computer engineering CEO? Research Bill Gates. He is a stand-up guy. He is the genius, and he is the hero. Bill Gates has donated over $10,000,000,000 dollars to charity and has put thousands of unemployed people to work. Enjoy him while he’s still around. Hopefully it’ll be longer than Steve.
