Sculpture of Steve Jobs allegedly contains his trash
If you're, uh, dying to own this piece of art entitled "Think Different," it will be reproduced as a limited edition for sale in "Apple Black" as a way to remember the mass suicides at Foxconn. Obviously, this is not necessarily a tribute to Jobs or to Apple. "Either waiting in line or in an assembly line, Apple is to die for. Unfortunately, Apple thinks it's all the same," said XVALA. "Think Different" will debut at AIS Editions on October 13.

Buddy its not a Crap
He was a pioneer of computer industry
Ipod - changed d world hw v listen 2 music
I phone - revolution in mobile world we need to agree that...if it didn't cm into picture, m sure we will b still using a stylus for a touch screen
the only thing which I personally don't like about apple is its pricing..we need to respect this guy for what he has done
M not a fanboy of apple...i love Nokia but this single phone has changed fate of Nokia which introduces more than 10 phones a year :(

Buddy your info is a bit short-handed!
All steve can be credited for is that he was a relentless salesman who had the potential to oversell.
I don't know how close you follow tech but technology has a natural evolution and the stylus was going to go, it was just a matter of time. Integrated wireless communications has been around since the 60s therefore Apple is not the maker of stylus-free touch screens.
Companies like IBM, Siemens, Motorola (not mobility division), Huawei, ericsson, alcatel define tech infrastructure on the basis of which max telecom tech is based therefore I stated that neither steve nor apple is responsible for inventing stuff. Apple at the end of the day is just another consumer manufacturer!
Therefore my case still stands!
"The truth will set you free!"

You know the truth? Ignorance is a bliss for me then! People like you who can't accept others for contributing to society.
A society where everyone has technology already to improve for the better.
Oh yeah its all about the other companies in the past!
WRONG, just like you said "natural evolution", there is something called "natural selection", of what a human prefers.
They are not responsible for inventing stuff? They invented their "own product" is there anything else that is EXACTLY the same Same design?
Lmao smart remarks though, any salesman can be relentless, a fool for not knowing that. It sickens me, at the end of the day, you are a person with their own opinion, who obviously wouldn't care what anyone says.
Maybe if you open your ego, it will set you free..

Hey fanboy I've got news for you!
you my friend are truly ignorant. I dont wanna sound like a smart-ass but you make me look real smart cuz you're that dumb! Nw my case....
You say Steve contributed to society??/ How?
There are tons of humanitarian people who actually contribute to society but steve my firend was not one of them. He was a good salesperson...period!
Second those companies like IBM, Moto,ericsson,etc you call in the past aren't in the past. They are alive and behind-the-scenes for whatever turn telecom technology takes. Get your head out of your a$$! Companies like samsung (which i like :) and apple are just consumer goods manufacturer not innovators!
Third. Natural selection? WTF? we aren't in biology class. i used natural evolution in context buddy. I didnt just spurt some random stuff like you just for arguement sake! And I agree with your 'what humans prefer' ideal therefore my previous comment was my opinion based on what i prefer!
Why do you have to be a fanboy and bash it??
Fourth there is no stuff like apple's as you said. Nobody wants a piece of iCrap...so why will they make stuff like that??? and even if someone did Rotten Apple will be just anti-competitive and sue them! So its not worth the effort to make stuff like thiers or steve's!
Fifth. I am neither egotistical nor narcisstic. As you said I am a person of my own opinion. Arent we all? Only a fool like you, the apple sheep dont have own opinions because they are too freakin' dumb and they dont have a mind of their own!
Since they dont have their own opinion they also dont have any self-respect or self-esteem! Develop an opinion like me and be your own man!
Man up for once!
CONCLUSION: The phenomenon you just experienced while reading my comment is called "You a$$ just got owned by ME!"

lol...what a strange person..!!!
K mate let me make it very simple for you....
Just name single samsung TOUCH screen phone that was there before iphone..!!! ????? not just samsung give me some phone that was as smooth as iphone before 2007 ????
If you cant name any..then u need to shut and agree (UR) so called icrap did some thing rev...
Nobody's gonna save your a$$ except for you
45. PhenomFaz (Posts: 1064; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
Maddy buddy my a$$ don't need saving :)
oh yeah before iPhone HTC was already making toch screen phones and before that around 15 years ago there were touch tablets existing from IBM!!!
I am not bashing Apple...I am just saying it as it is. Consumer manufacturers like Apple or any other consumer manufacturer company are not innovators. Get your heads out of your a$$e$ fanboys!
I did the naming part for you...as for the smooth part that's just natural evolution of tech.If you make something today like a biometric scanner then its pretty obvious companies are going to produce better scanners in future...so if someone made touchscreens first hten it was only a matter of time before someone made a smooth touchscreen!
I have been kind to you in this comment...appreciate it while it lasts or your candy-a$$ will get owned :)
48. PhenomFaz (Posts: 1064; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
WTF? You are a fanboy, a troll and a nazi??!!!

Agreed. These people area joke. If it wasn't for Steve Jobs there precious little android wouldn't exist.

Because Steve invented it? Spearheaded it? Created the idea of it? Go take a bath with your electronics.

From the article: "Obviously, this is not necessarily a tribute to Jobs or to Apple. "Either waiting in line or in an assembly line, Apple is to die for. Unfortunately, Apple thinks it's all the same," said XVALA.

Nice, he collected trash to make more trash and wound up with iTrash.
12. Slammer (Posts: 975; Member since: 03 Jun 2010)
Obviously a hater's artwork. They gave Steve a big head for is ego and small iPhone due to offering only a 4" screen.

Even though apple is not worth anything ,i think its better at the time of jobs.

It's pretty obvious the statue contains his trash. It's right there in his hand, pretty obvious.

Not to get into an iOS vs. Android pissing match, I just wanted to say I'm always amazed by the talent people exhibit in sculpting and painting. If I were to try and sculpt that, it'd look like a lump of rock with a vaguely anthropomorphic shape.

Its really sad how much is being said about a man that is no longer here. The level of hate being set lose is mind boggling. And the fact that the iphone and ipad are not the only devices mads there is always left out. So i guess that sammy and htc and even moto are just as evil in that respect. Plus a couple of other top android device makers. Jobs wasnt a prince in any respect but when he was there he and his one phone and one tablet held its own against an onslaught of android and other devices so it wasnt truly icrap probably just out of a few of your price range and. And my mother sends attachments in her emails all the time from her iphone so lets not get it twisted and aside from me having LTE on my high end android her iphone is equal and some respects better featured. Say some ignorant crazy s* about my mother and I WILL MEET YOU ON YOUR GROUND AND you all ready know so dont go there. Keep your hate in your place.

Apple is still one of the largest and most profitable companies on Earth. :)
Disagree all you want or anything else.
It's a fact :) RIP STEVE.
