People just don't understand...

A neighbor weighs in on Steve Jobs.

Would you believe he's not merely a colossal genius - he's also just "the guy next door?"

Yup...ok. :-\

Read all about it here.

Personally, I think Steve Jobs may be in a lot more serious a medical condition than they're letting on.

Because some of that essay smacks of pre-eulogization8)


From the 40hz Dictionary:

Quote
Pre-eulogization: (vt) The act of writing a eulogy in advance of a controversial person's immanent demise,; done with the intention of furnishing an apology or positive spin on said person's behavior before the journalists and biographers have a field day showing just how much of a dyed-in-the-wool bastard said person truly was.


Either way, I genuinely do wish him all the best with regards to his illness. Because as much as some of his actions have annoyed me over the years, I still can't find any justification in wishing him pain or suffering.
 :)

Is THAT what that is?! Pretty sure my mother wrote one for me when I was about eight years old!  (Ha! Wishful thinking on her part!)
