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 didn’t 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 ?
