I strongly disagree. Today is no different from yesterday. While those close to him probably don't want to hear anny negatives, they are also not obliged to (or likely to) troll comments on stories like this... at least not today. Proximity to death does not change facts or opinions. If he was an asshole while alive he's still an asshole.

Yes, indeed. And while I didn't like Jobs, this was regarding him as Apple's CEO because I din't like many things Apple as a company has done under his command. This however doesn't mean that the person, the human being Steve Jobs was an asshole. He might have been or he might have not.
