RIP Steve Jobs. My uncle worked for Apple when it first started. I met Jobs when I was a little kid and he wasn't the nicest guy for sure; he nodded at me. It was obviously he was not one for games. Aloof, hard ass and demanding. Even strange at times. Wozniak was wild and full of energy. With Wozniaks engineering talent, and Jobs vision and marketing skills, they changed history. I'm not an apple guy but game recognizes game and he was up there with the likes of Disney and Ford.

There is a book about Jobs' death.

It is called "Steve Jobs Death Motivation Secrets".

It is in the Amazon.com Kindle Store. Creepy.
