Steve Jobs – For whom the geeks cry!

The “legendary” Steve Jobs packed it in, and sent millions mourning his death. Every media outlet ran a non-stop coverage from his bathroom to his grave, and the world contemplated over his greatness with such amplitude that will be hard to top off. I wonder if the world will ever do the same for real great figures like Nelson Mandela. Maybe it’s worth mentioning to all my Mac-loving friends, that their geek-god was less than a generous figure on any ground when it came to helping others. Under direct order of Mr. Job, Apple eliminated all philanthropy programs. To say that Apple is not known for charity giving is pure understatement, but somehow it never made it to their man-in-the-box commercials.

He oozed smug superiority, lacing his public comments with ridicule of Apple’s rivals, which he labeled as mediocre, evil, and – worst of all – lacking taste. What is Steve Jobs’ legacy? Many to count. He was a bright man who invented a lot of “cool” things, but his real legacy is probably his funeral, where he again captured the world, over absolutely nothing, for triple the price. I bet he’s selling an iphone to Saint Peter as we speak.

Somehow the death of one man is a tragedy, but the death of millions is a statistic.

    Change.org recently asked for people to sign a petition and not buy IPads or IPhones . Chinese workers are assembling these devises under 16 hr work days, and toxic materials health conditions. It is unconscionable. .

    I am looking for a SEO soaftwre package that can be used to create reports about websites and what can be done to improve them. We would like to reduce the time it takes to create these reports for clients by hand as we do today. I was looking at WebPosition (which does a decent job creating reports about sites) and just found out about Web CEO (which appears to be a bit better) recently. Is Web CEO good at creating reports about sites? Are there other packages out there that are better?
