Anyone else sick of people bitching that Steve Jobs got attention and fame? He was the face of the company. Ronald McDonald didn't do **** and he's the face of McDonalds.

Ronald McDonald isn't hailed as a genius by thousands of people.

I find it comforting that CIV 5 includes Steve Jobs not as a 'Great Engineer' but as a 'Great Merchant'

And that cunt has a movie about his life.

Sorry but I really hate this guy.

Because he's the hero that Computing deserves, but not the one it needs right now... and so we'll ignore him... because he can take it... because he's not a hero... he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a Dark Knight...

I remember when this was first posted a few days after Jobs died.

As much as I hate Steve Jobs there's one thing that he did very well and that was marketing.
Ritchie may have been a computing god but he wasn't advertising himself so of course no one knew about him.

Alrighty someone better explain the whole C thing because I refuse to believe he invented a damn letter.

Not true, Xerox beat apple to the punch with the Xerox Star and Alto both of which had a GUI and a Mouse, beating the Lisa (The precursor to the Mac) by around 2 years.

Dennis ritchie didnt want to be famous so he was infamous
Steve jobs was the face of the company
Thats it.

Ok, while its popular to hate on apple right now, this isn't completely true.
Without Steve Jobs and his recognizing and then perfecting good things few things would have happened much later and entire computer revolution would be much delayed.
He was first person to recognize that people want a personal computer. At the time when big companies were thinking "No ordinary person would ever want a comptuer" Jobs was designing easy to use Apple II and Macintosh.
While it was XEROX Parc research lab who developed graphic user interface, mouse operated GUI, bitmap graphics and object oriented programming, XEROX never intended to use it. Those technologies were literally left to sit and abandoned untill Jobs and Apple made a deal with XEROX and used them to develop their own systems.
Steve Jobs was brilliant at recognizing what people want and need before people themselves knew they wanted or needed it, and then selling it to them at inflated price before others caught up.
If not for him there is a good chance that right now our computers would still barely be mainstream, and we would be using something equivalent of windows 95 to use them.
