    Steve Jobs

    apparently it's rumored that he's going to be dead in six weeks from his pancreatic cancer, I don't like the iPhone but that sucks.

    I think that rumor was started by the National Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid that is owned by a competitor of News Corp (the company that released the subscription newspaper on the ipad). I can't say for sure it's false, but it wouldn't surprise me at all.

    There is a cure for cancer. It's called "money." Jobs ain't going nowhere.

    Man I hope that isn't true. Pancreatic is a bad way to die. I lost a good friend and my step-dad to it.

    Really, really wish him the best!!

    I lol over this.

    I hope he's OK too. Only time will tell, without him Microsoft wouldn't be as good as it is today. I mean if you call that good.

    Yeah that sucks......regardless of how people feel about Apple and their ways, you cant deny that Jobs is the reason Apple has EXPLODED as a company. He is a master at what he is doing.

    If this is true it would be terrible but I have not seen any sources outside of the Enquirer reporting on this. In fact from what I have read he is still very much involved in everyday decisions for Apple but doing most of it from behind closed doors. I hope all is well with him though.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    If it's Jobs, then why can't we see his face?

    Oh but don't hold me to that, it's not like I talked to him and know he's fine or anything...

    Nevertheless, what would happen to Apple without Jobs? It'll no doubt go downhill. First, the lack of a Mac-veteran such as Jobs would spur reason to make the Mac OS open source. Then in order to compensate for falling stock, they will have to approve ALL Apps submitted to the App Store to get as much revenue from that as possible. In order to minimize losses from giving away free "bumpers" for the iPhone 4, they'll have no choice but to design a decent antenna for the iPhone. Finally they'll realize Apple will always be in a shadow of its former glory and will have to lower the high prices of all Apple products (iPod, Mac, etc.) in order to make as much money as possible.

    Tragic, truly, truly tragic.

    Trust me Jobs has people trained in case something like this happened. The next person in charge will be someone with identical ideology. And you honestly think Apple suffered losses handing out bumpers that cost them 15 cents to make????
