Have some respect for the dead.
Oops... Looks like I hit a sensitive nerve.

Fact:
The massive increase in APPL stock value vs the price I paid to buy more year after year from 1991 forward, has already made me a staggering amount.

Fact:
I've done more philanthropy work that that man ever though of.

Fact:
Stating my views on the prior CEO's greed doesn't mean I don't respect his obvious accomplishments. There's a big difference.


Lookup the word "assumption" and you'll understand where you went wrong.

A yacht? Weak.

I was looking forward to a starship (in the Star Trek sense) named after Departed Dear Leader.

I expect this is a "fair weather" ship.
Excellent points.

Steve Jobs goes down in history as an exemplary example of a greedy man.

But hey... he concealed it well. Just like this canoe
Oh ****, if you work hard to make yourself a lot of money you're not automatically under an obligation to give it away.

Additionally, Steve Jobs was said to have given a lot of money to charity anonymously because he hated publicity, and Apple raised a lot of money for Product (RED).

Ha ha, was that built in Kiel and runs out of Lorient? Looks like a snubby Type VII U Boat. I think he was having a bit of laugh with that one.

It's simplistic, I like it. Although I hope they still need to put a bow on it.

It's a fantastic design, done in collaboration with a man who is widely recognized as the "J Ive" of Ultra Luxury Yacht designers.

I don't like the way the iMacs look. Does not look oceanworthy.

No because the new iMacs are too light.

Seriously? That's a drop in the bucket for Steve Jobs. He might not have been trying to be wealthy like Larry Ellison, Bill Gates, etc...but he was no slouch and deserves to enjoy the fruits of his labor. I hope the Jobs family thoroughly enjoys this yacht!

apple store

When the family is done with it, it would make a really cool gigantic floating apple store. It could attract hundreds of thousands of people at every port it stopped at in countries that have no apple stores.
