Big ups to Mr Jobs. My sympathy too goes out to his loved ones. It is too young! A quick remark though re: 'no progress on cancer' - I've lost some very dear relatives to cancer including some really nasty ones, mesothelioma and pancreatic cancer too, so understand the shear frustration many suffer. I've also worked in cancer research and can assure you an awful lot of very dedicated people have worked long hard hours to understand the (wide wide) variety of cancers and possible therapies - and this may dishearten some, but the truth is, there will rarely be any 'cures' for any cancer types, just better therapies.. ..though there will be those! It's not a 'disease', ..it's when the very very complicated machines that our bodies are aren't quite working perfectly ..it's just part of life ..and death I'm afraid. sorry to get sciencey there. RIP!
