Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

Malaria affects 225 million people each year and kills 800,000 (mostly children) every year.

The first ever effective malaria vaccine has just been announced. The vaccine research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation because virtually every other medical research team has considered this an impossible acheivement.

Eliminating malaria will rate as an achievement on par with the development as the printing press.

JD Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie are still immensely influential long after they died because of their charitable contributions. Bill Gates will be too.

Jobs will (at best) be remembered a a self-centred arsehole who sold overpriced consumer junk to the gullible. Steve Jobs - the PT Barnum of the early 21st century.
