    here's one.

    In spite of pleas from family and friends, he tried to cure himself through acupuncture sessions, drinking special fruit juices, visiting "spiritualists" and using other treatments he found on the internet.

    Stern related because he still brings up Dr Sarno and is photographed hunched over.

    You know what I was just thinking? They haven't made enough retrospectives, documentaries, and movies about Steve Jobs.

    Seriously, nobody likes smelling their own farts more than Silicon Valley.

    That tv movie about him 15 years ago already showed he was a major douche.

    What was so bad about him? Apple was almost kaput until he returned to the company.

    He was a major greedy asshole pretending money didn't mean anything to him. Watch the show. Steve Jobs The Man in the Machine.

    I read the biography. Learned he was a dick bag from that. Had a daughter, abandoned her. Shit head to his family.

    They can make all the movies about his life - buy I won't see any.

    I totally agree with this. He was loved, feared and hated by the people closest to him. A total egomaniac and brilliant visionary who used other people's technical talents to advance his agenda. It's amazing how the liberals love this guy like a tech God.

    I know nothing about Balmer but I assume he was the "Jobs" role at Microsoft.

    After learning that he showered once a week and washed up in the toilet at work, they probably wanted him to stay away.
