Apple fans step up in Russia unveiling interactive iPhone 5-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs

0. phoneArena 11 Jan 2013, 11:32 posted on

2013 will go down as the year that Apple did its best to steal coverage from CES (although the company does try to sneak in some rumors every year.) We've already had the saga of the "cheap iPhone", which won't go away, and now the Apple faithful are joining in to help by unveiling an interactive iPhone 5-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs in St. Petersburg, Russia...

Agreed. I guess we should ask his daughter Lisa if he deserves a monument. After denying a paternity test and taking 8 years to meet her for the first time.... This guy was a complete D*Bag to the core and it sickens me to see people worship him this way.

Many great men had a dark sides, that doesn't take away from their accomplishments. MLK was a womanizer, but that doesn't take away what he did for civil rights. Einstein cheated on his wife, and left his son to die in a mental hospital, never seeing him for the last 30 years of his life, but that doesn't change what he did for physics. Jobs was an ass to employees, and a jerk to Lisa for a long time, but he still did amazing things for tech.

How f*cking DARE you compare a sleazy salesman who stole the idea to make an overpriced touchscreen phone to one of the greatest and most inluential men this country has seen. Yeah, a salesman is totally on the same level as the leader of the civil rights movement.

Anyway, that still does not mean he deserves the adolation, idolization, and cult like following that he has. He was a salesman and a businessman, and he's dead now. End of story.

Sorry, i didn't expect anyone to think i was actually comparing the accomplishments of those men. It seemed obvious to me that there was no comparison on that level. I should have remembered that haters will always ignore the obvious in order to focus on whatever feeds into their existing bias. My bad.

So you needed it pointed out to you that comparing a theiving insufferable salesman who pretty much NOBODY who knew him liked to THE civil rights leader, someone who actually changed the country (not just peddled electronic novelties, actual CHANGE) and brought equality to millions of Americans, and one of the most brilliant mathmeticians/scientists ever was bare minimum in extremely poor tast? Really? You really had no idea that would be seen as offensive?
I'll say it again: find a new job.

Actually, all I pointed out what that nobody is perfect. Even the best people have flaws. If all you do is focus on that, you're going to miss a lot.

I understand that I could have been more explicit in what I was saying, but again, I didn't assume that anyone would think I was comparing Jobs' accomplishments to the others, because such a comparison is so absurd.

Obviously, you hate Steve Jobs, which is your right. I think he was more than a "thieving insufferable salesman". He wasn't a good man, but he had a real impact on technology. All I'm saying is that you can hate him if you want, but there was more to him than being an asshole.

I'll say it more clearly: get more perspective. You're clouded by hate.

"He wasn't a good man, but he had a real impact on technology"

Adolph Hitler wasn't a good man, but he had a very positive impact on Germany's economy after WW1.

OK got it, now I see. As long as someone had some kind of positive impact on the world, regardless of what an evil piece of sh*t they were they deserve respect and recognition for what they did.

Making horrible analogies/comparrisons is fun!

One man's food is other man's poison. Good and bad are all relative terms. Nothing is absolute about such terms. There have been bigger holocausts than what hitler caused but people only remeber hitler. So that's where "propaganda" machine like press, historians, editors, writers and bloggers have a responsibility which they unfortunately get swayed away from under the impact of money that calls the shots to shape what is written.

WOW Mike, just...WOW. You compare steve "f*ck you" jobs to MLK Jr (you missed that) and Albert Einstein, two of the greatest men America has ever produced. You uh, you DO realize those two actually made a meaningful impact right? You DO realize they actually changed society for the better right? Jobs invented the ipod and stole the iphone concept, yeah TOTALLY on par with MLK and Einstein.

That sh*t^^^^ right there^^^^ is why you are called out as being an apple fanboy and a biased journalist.

Gotta agree with Billy, how dare you.
