Surprised nobody has talked about Steve's last words. Gives me chills thinking about it.
Recounting the manner in which Jobs approached death, Simpson said "what he was, was how he died." According to her, "death didnít happen to Steve, he achieved it," adding that, as his breathing slowed, "he seemed to be climbing."
To conclude, Simpson shared how Jobs' final words as he looked at his sister Patty, his children and his wife, then over their shoulders, were "OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW."
I'm only listening to it in the truck, so I am at the orange grove commune. BTW.. his description of LSD mirrors my thoughts exactly. AND.. in the very early 80's I was exposed to some buddhism and the book Be Here Now. While the book meanders quite a bit.. it does have a good message about living in "the now".
An interesting side note.. I always felt bad for Woz since he left Apple before it became the juggernaut it is today. I always thought that he left before the money started flowing. I looked up his net worth. Apparently he left Apple with 45 million and today is worth about 100 million. Not too bad.
Thats a good point, makes me wonder if we will see more Woz at Apple ? ? He has been going to Apple stores for product debuts, more as a customer. I can see him as a spokesman sorta thingy maybe even keynotes ?
Well I dunno, I recently seen Woz do some TV interviews and he sounded like a good speaker to me. But TV is different from standing on a live stage, so that I dunno ?
He's a horrible speaker, and is somewhat out of touch with reality.
Well Steve had that Reality Distortion Field working Woz certainly is not a visionary but I can see him as promotional, maybe a few TV commercials, maybe as a keynote host ?
I hate to say it but to me , Tim Cook sucks at public speaking - Don't get me wrong he is a good speaker , just he is very monotone , no emotion , lacks the ability to really kick punch lines like Steve did. I think this is where the Woz could be beneficial as a keynote host , introducing the other Apple VP's demos. Really anyone would be better than Cook when it comes to Facilitating.
That is the Pentecostal way all Christians will be saved which is line of crap. People are good and bad in life no matter what religion you are. I was brainwashed for 2 years with this thinking .No more I saw the light.
Great... I think more and more "intelligent" people are seeing it this way.
It does reflect some higher intelligence I think...the more "fixed minded", "DO or DIE" followers tend to be those with low education.... i.e. redneck like. . . . little capability for critical or analytical thinking.
Sigh. This was a thread about his final words/thoughts.
His feelings on religion had nothing to do with what you and Jerry posted. You two can turn any thread into some kind of political or social diatribe.
Yeah... well none of that matters because Steve was a heartless, cold man who cared about nothing but his computers because he had them made in sweat shops in an impoverished country. He didn't actually say that... but we can infer this.
