    Hey gang

    I thought this was "unusually" motivating and
    wasn't sure if my mac buds had seen this or not.

    What does everyone think about Steve's
    view on death?

    i've only watched the first 5 mins so far. It really is amazing how Steve turned from sleeping in his mate's dorms to running the most recognisable company on earth. The day Jobs retires from Apple will be a sad one; he is responsible for everything the Mac is, has ever been, and will ever be.
    I remember hearing about a computer some workers made for him. When they showed it to him, he threw the concept out, simply because the insides didn't look good. Because of that vision, the insides the G5 PowerMacs and the new Mac Pros is beautifully clean, simple, and very easy to use.

    Certainly Apple was reinvigorated when Jobs returned to the company, but over the years other people have played a rather sizeable contribution.... Jef Raskin springs to mind...

    I wouldn't call his view of death shocking. Pragmatic maybe but not shocking, at least not to me.

    No idea whats so shocking. Hes right.

    Death provides meaning for life. What good would it be if we lived EDIT:forever? (instead of together)
