If true about Steve Jobs ...

Hi all,

It's been some time since my last post, much has happened professionally and personally, almost all great news. Still, this blog is important to me, and I need to resume.

Nothing link the following excerpt from a New Yorker story about Steve Jobs:

Jobs, we learn, was a bully. “He had the uncanny capacity to know exactly what your weak point is, know what will make you feel small, to make you cringe,” a friend of his tells Isaacson. Jobs gets his girlfriend pregnant, and then denies that the child is his. He parks in handicapped spaces.

I had heard stories of Jobs' confrontational, ranting management style indirectly from a few employees. Since his death, the tributes and "non-tributes" have emerged. Love most of the products, save the heavy-handed closeness of the software, and the constraint for iTunes and the App store.

Still, if the above quote is true, then my opinion of the Apple founder has diminished. I think you can be an innovator, a CEO, and a visionary without impeding the vulnerable.

And to think of how much we talk about accessibility and interface when discussing Apple ;-) -- all opinions are mine -- JD

Hi JD,

Yup, this is true. While he was alive and mobile, I saw pictures of his car parked in handicap spaces.

While he made a lot of great products, I get the impression that ethics were not his forte.

You are only able to lose fat whenever you use up more calories than you consume. Foods rich in water content are among probably the most filling and satisfying, making low-calorie broth-based soup a popular choice for dieters buy phen375 in the pan, add the organic olive oil, minced garlic and chopped onions, saute for around 3 minutes you can add the fresh spinach and sauteuntil wilted. And you are able to find proof of overweight people everywhere you're going. Your exercise should seem like something you're doing for you, not an ordeal or punishment you need to cope with http://www.phen375factsheet.com diets with a lack of nutrients can have a negative effect on your own body and exactly how it functions. The science - glycogen is often a substance held in bodily tissue being a store of carbohydrates [url=http://www.phen375factsheet.com]phen375[/url] cancer in the esophagus or stomach cancer is yet another reason for weight reduction.
