Comments on: Jobs was a manufacturer, and salesman, of love http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/10/06/jobs-was-a-manufacturer-and-salesman-of-love/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Jeffrey7112 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/10/06/jobs-was-a-manufacturer-and-salesman-of-love/#comment-390563 Mon, 10 Oct 2011 12:54:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=30047#comment-390563 Steve Jobs was an @ss. A brilliant one no doubt, but an @ss just the same. The writter of this column met him and recognized him for who and what he was, then went to his constructs for a different opinion. Guess that’s why he’s such a darling of the left. Because it’s stupid. He was a hateful, bullying, manipulative miser. Qualities I’ve never been attracted to. You guys like that sort of thing, eh?

Manufacturers of love have been around for a lot longer than Apple. “Love” and a variety of other themes have been the stuff of advertising since the industry began. Baby powder was a big “love” product and probably still is. And I know one can “heart” NYC.

Come on – the man manufactured a device and the writer is getting a little carried away.

Nobody ever accused Henry Ford or Thomas Edison, or even AG Bell of manufacturing “Love”. Maybe everyone had more sense back then?

There’s no denying that he had a unique intuition and talent that few men can aspire, or even relate to. I, myself, being 59 yrs old, are not among the high-tech, ‘must-haves’, who benefit so much from these new technologies every day. Of course, I understand the value of such advancements, but my usage is limited by choice. Nonetheless, it’s very obvious to me that Steve Jobs blazed an incredible trail during his professional life, and he will always be remembered for changing the way the world communicates. How can you not respect his man for his amazing accomplishments?!

There’s a fundamental difference.

How do you treat any addiction? You have to achieve a balanced perspective, because addiction warps one’s perspective of life. The addict can’t imagine his life being happy and rewarding absent the object of his addiction. Addicts don’t like it when someone challenges their warped perspective on life. Get over YOURself, Nullcorp. The fact you’re upset at my comments reveals a lot about you.

Ha. Get over yourself.

He’s your Reverend Tilton – your T.V. preacher that fascinates and that feeds and facilitates your desire to substitute things of real consequence, like real relationships with people, for things of pretend-substance, like pseudo-relationships with all your gadgets.

Jobs is the Pied Piper of today’s tech-addicted generation.

I don’t associate with such types – they’re generally completely devoid of social skills, enormously self-centered and self-absorbed, and have no real appreciation for the finer things in life and the things you can’t put a price tag on. They’re barely human.
