Steve Jobs is Dead
Entrepreneurs come, and entrepreneurs go.
But will there be another like the greedy SOB Steve Jobs?
Nah, we don’t think so!
The man’s been on the mountain-top, and he’s been down in the valley.
Hell, our legend has been in India too (no kidding, schmucks) during his teen angst days.
Now the digital media messiah floats in the rarefied, exclusive air of the stratosphere.
Who says an epitaph has to be filled with words.
Can Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs get a better epitaph than the below table?
For the record, we own an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 and remain mostly satisfied.
Digital Media Visionary Steve Jobs is Dead
No doubt, he will remain an inspiration for generations to come. And I knew he was in India, from his famous speech at Stanford. Have you heard it?
Btw, are you aware of this news?
1. Jobs’ Stanford speech? No.
Where’s the link? When you highlight something interesting like Steve Jobs’ Stanford speech with an India connection you must provide a link so others can enjoy reading it as well.
But we read about Steve Jobs’ long India trip in the famous February 1985 Playboy interview.
2.You write: Btw, are you aware of this news [Marans’ problems]?
Yes, we’ve been following the plight and fall from grace of the Morons oops Marans with a great deal of schadenfreude.
How nice it’d be if a pack of rabid dogs were to sink its teeth into the well-pressed suits and over-fed torsos of the Maran brothers.
Ah, the sheer thought, the mere fantasy of these two assh*les dying of rabies is giving us an orgasm. 😉
BTW, Kalanidhi Maran’s hero and role-model Rupert Murdoch is going through considerable pain himself in the UK.
Ha ha ha, Happy Days are back again. Refreshing Cola. Thums Up (an old ad from our India days)! 🙂

And this is the speech in text format
“But will there be another like the greedy SOB Steve Jobs?” –
Perhaps not, but if there is another greedy SOB better than Steve Jobs, it augurs well for the market. You see sometimes a person’s greed ends in Society’s benefit. Remember Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the Electric Bulb and Gramaphone. His company GE is supposed to have hundreds of patents for inventions and innovations. If you analyse closer, you would realize that all these inventions were more or less the brain child of Edison’s employees, who had the unfortunate distinction of not being able to claim credit for their achievements. While Edison’s greed for money did lead him to do numerous foolish things such as condemning AC form of electricity, his greediness has resulted in some really smart technology. Let’s be thankful to these greedy people for once! On the flip side, greedy people must not be tolerated if they try to monopolise their products!
1. At least with Jobs, his products work for the most part as they should.
Bill Gates & several other tech moghuls have caused greater acidity and Blood Pressure with their cheap but crappy offerings.
2. BTW, Edison city is New Jersey (named after Thomas Edison) is the major hub of Indian activity on the East Coast.
yeah thanks to the greedy SOBs we’ll never know what the future might have been if they have let the better technology survive.. They do make it harder for better products to come to the market.
Tesla powered bulbs without wires by induction.. Edison had it banned as dangerous.. now we are back with induction and wireless electricity.. if not for Edison’s greed this would have happened 50 years earlier.
anyway corporations chart our future and the technology we use.. anyway whatever..
Now, the big talk is about wireless charging for the next generation iPhones.
Here’s the speech I think he is referring to:
but it contains no refernce to India..
In Shadowfax’ YouTube link, the reference to India is there (Trek through India) in the introductory address of the Stanford university official John Hennessy who spoke before Steve Jobs.
The Playboy Interview that we linked to earlier clearly mentions Steve Jobs’ visit to India, his meeting with some Babas in the mountains and more.
Just finished reading: “the secret lives of the dalai lama from prehistory to the present”,loved it.it talks about how the dalai lamas were originally king priests in their past lives who took up the role of pope for the buddhists in tibet in the 14th century. It deals much about the dorje shugden controversy and how he (shugden) saved the dalai lama and planned his escape into exile.must read for anyone interested in Tibetan studies
In the face of the Han might, the Dalai Lama has not been able to do much except to raise awareness of the plight of Tibetans and the colonization of their ancient land by the majority Hans.
But does raising awareness count for anything at all when pitted against the indomitable force and ruthlessness of the Chinese government determined to uproot and quell the smallest signs of dissent and protest from the Tibetans.
as malcom x would say”WAKE UP CLEAN UP AND STAND UP”!
