    Macs aside, I just hate Apple for all the money they had me waste on their shitty iPods back in the days that I ended up throwing away after a year or so because they would stop working. Their earphones were worse than those I would find in a 99 cent store. And iTunes is one piece of garbage I will never use again.

    I bought a Zune HD in 2009, and by no means I am a Microsoft fan (I hate them for other reasons too), but holy crap the Zune software >>>>>>>>>>> iTunes any day of the year. It's getting old now though, and it's sad that microsoft discontinued them.

    I have the exact opposite opinion of you. I found the Zune software to be utterly garbage. To each their own I suppose tho.

    It was to happening when jobs was still with them in in 1984/5, he failed in NeXT Computer until it went software based.

    He made a few good moves after , pixar being the best but the success of apple was jobs "seeing" something in Steve Wozniak (who he used) and Jonathan Ive.

    I only really know of his successes I would love to find out how much he squandered in bad investments.

    To be honest, Apple is such a ridiculous company overall, that almost anyone willing to buy their products deserves to be ridiculed. And no, Jackass is lame, Dudesons own Jackass. ;)

    Yes, I'd like to know too. Love him or hate him, he was pretty clever and a very shrewed businessman, but everyone makes blunders. However, due to his popularity and image, I'll bet those mistakes get airbrushed out of history...

    Couldn't have said it better myself, if I had £100 and made 100 investments with 90 of those losing my money and 10 of those making me £100 each that would count as success.
    When in reality I was only 10% right.

    That's a great example. It helps explain why people can make one mistake after another in business and still come out on top.

    Oh really? A guy walked out of the store having spent $3K on a Mac Pro and an iPad...
