Sad event this week, the death of Steve Jobs. He had pancreatic cancer and lasted two years. My mother only lasted two months. Maybe treatment is getting better but maybe the advantage of being a billionaire. Jobs was the type of genius whose failures were as important as his successes. The Apple III – does anyone remember the Apple III. Losing Apple. The first Macintosh. The NEXT computer. All these failures were used to build on his early successes. While other computer age executives are retired or doing charity or buying sports teams, Jobs was making products to the end. We’ll all miss him.
