Apple "My neighbor, Steve Jobs, has been in the news lately. The talk of the town is the recent announcement he will be stepping aside to let other seeds grow at Apple. The business press, the general press, the blogosphere, and just about everybody else has waxed poetic about the 'greatest CEO of all time' saying that this 'boy wonder' has shaped the very nature of our lives with his genius. It's all true, but here in Palo Alto, Steve Jobs isn't just an icon, he's also the guy who lives down the street." I like stories that put a human being behind a public figure. As much as I dislike Apple's recent policies, Jobs is still just a regular person, like all of us. It's easy to forget that when you're sitting behind a glass desk 4000 kilometres away.

Liver theft

He gamed the organ transplant system to get his liver transplant... in Tennessee. He doesn't live in Tennessee.

Nobody but the ultra-rich can afford to put their names on 14 liver transplant waiting lists around the country.

I think about the poor soul who died because Steve Jobs got the liver intended for that pour soul.

Shame on you, Steve Jobs.

Steve also thinks about the people who died while he lived. He actually did something about it too.
