  • It's thin, really thin!

    And it needs to take a REST and put it's own health ahead of Apples.

    Seriously Jobs, chill out, take a proper rest not a pretend rest.

      @guihombre Dude, seriously. The guy is sucking every last drop out of life. Let him be.

      • However, Jobs is really fanatic about the job, and medical history may ...

        @ronphlf@... actually reveal in the future that he has abused himself in the terms of health for the sake of dragging/delaying stepping down for medial leave -- both this time, and previous time he has waited for January to care about himself, working to the very last moment before it was beyond impossible not to work. Last time Jobs was like couple of months before death with his liver problem.

        So maybe he indeed should better heal himself well instead of trying to work.

      @guihombre
      That's the difference with Jobs... he's passionate about what he does. That's what sets leaders apart from you.

        @Hasam1991

        What's the point of having all that passion if you aren't alive to use it?

        I admire him as much as the next guy, but right now I'm finding myself worrying about his health much more than I find myself admiring his accomplishments.

    Love Steve yet he like everyone else continues to produce just enough to entice the buyers. It`s a programmed move to give (just) the right amount so as to suck more money out time and time again. Sick of all advancements built on the little step program and could produce an opposing tablet in a year or two that would blow all this crap right out of its collective waters. WHY NOT? Here is my point; our brains and social structures are incapable of keeping up with the "jones" method of rapid advancements. Done with junk. Laptop, simple phone and GPS for the auto. This process of evolution through newest product dispersion will kill the values of humans and make us into something uncaring. Yuck and yuck. Live through eyes, nose, ears, and mouth and the taste of the world in the quiet of the moment.. This race may be creating a space between that which was and the inner mind. Space that destroys. Instinct without electricity. The subconscious will allow more advancement in ways beyond the wildest imaginings, The route to take. My journey.Evolution.
