Gotta say somethin'

If the world truly mourns the man, the stock of MSFT wouldn't have risen and the stock of APPL wouldn't have gone down.

This is a truly hypocritical world.

Then again, APPL != Steve Jobs.

Certainly. Love for Steve doesn't need to lead to love for APPLE, and vice verca.

How do you feel about all the overwhelming news or coverage about him? Lots of superlatives used on him.

Btw, as you could imagine, Facebook is full of stuff about Steve. Everyone is telling everyone else 2 or 3 things about Steve that everyone already knows. Such display of uniformity is so at odds of the "Think Different" principle that their idol championed.

I like your observation. "Think Different" and everybody gets a fucking iPhone. It's more "peer pressure" than "think different".

Steve Jobs did usher us into the era of touchscreen phones and tablets. That's definitely better than Mark Zuckerberg who ushered us into the era of trivial-redefining status updates.
