C'mon! The new iMac is shitty and has less features than ever before (iMovie, iDVD etc and no optical drive nor FireWire) and the iPhone 5 is balls... Plastic stretched out iPhone 4... And the new iOS, with a bad working nav, I could go on forever! In the past Apple developed stuff that looked great and worked solid. Nowadays they have updates ever half-a-second, all full of flaws. The iPad 2 was still red and steaming and there came "the NEW iPad". Apple should take again time to develop solid stuff that looks awesome and feels great! And yeah, they'd probably loose half of their hipsters, but hey, than they will last longer!
As he took his second break some month ago, I thought that he did this to prepare Apple for his final departure. He was not everytime a nice but a charismatic man who had visions. He startet Apple twice, first with Steve Wozniak and in the late 90's with NeXT. Now it's time for others to measure his footsteps for the second time with no chance to get a third Steve-kick. It's sad but life.
As Steve said, "No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true." These words truely affected me... Steve Jobs changed the world and he will Never be forgotten.
