Yes, another useless Steve Jobs speculation thread. Go ahead and say it and get it off your chest. I was thinking of Bill Gates, who has transformed himself from the ruthless dictator of the Evil Empire etc, in to an impressive humanitarian. Although one never really thinks of Gates as a philosopher like Jobs, it is Gates who has transcended the obsession with small potatoes gadget consumerism and aimed his intelligence at far bigger, more interesting and important issues. The guy Jobs often accused of having no taste or style seems to have found his true purpose. Sadly, Jobs died quite young, a blazing meteor soon extinguished. What might his future have been if he'd been given more time? Where might his great intelligence have led him?
