I strongly disagree. Today is no different from yesterday.

It is to the Jobs family and friends. Or do you have no compassion?

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...

Troll is a very subjective term. Care to define it? I think it cuts both ways - some could argue your mirror holds the image of a classic troll.

Proximity to death does not change facts or opinions.

Being a member of the human race, rather than an animal, pretty much does mean that most people - love or hate Jobs, have at least some decency and respect.

If he was an asshole while alive he's still an asshole.

Exactly. But being cruel for the sake of making yourself feel self important, well that speaks greater volumes. Lacking compassion and moral fibre, well.. maybe we'll laugh like this when you die - oh wait, you'll never have amounted to anything, so no one will know you are dead... shucks, well I'll laugh now just so that I don't accidentally miss your demise, you heartless bastard. Oh, and as the cap fits, I suggest you don't bump you giant asshat on the way out.
