Steve Jobs is missed by Silicon Valley

28 posts in this topic

Another nice little article by BBC News about Steve Jobs and Apple...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19834594

Silicon Valley still hasn't recovered from this loss.

Yeah, it's trying. Larry Page and Sergey Brin over at Google are building self-driving cars and fantastic new wearable computers, but I'm left wondering how Jobs would look at those efforts and find a way to improve them.

Yes, I do wonder if Apple would have released its maps feature in such an early state.

wow.. Robert Scoble, an Apple suckup missing Jobs. What a shocker /s.

He's all sad that Apple is getting worse and worse. Scoble doesn't represent Silicon Valley nor does anyone really miss Steve Jobs.

We have a lot of innovation and things are moving faster than ever and the only ones who are trying to slow that progress are, are Apple and it's current people who are going by Jobsian emotional outbursts and pettiness legacy. Aside from BS keynotes, not sure what we are really missing.

I sure don't miss him at all.

Hmm ... I hope people say the same about you when you're dead :D LOL!

Seriously, you're narrow minded. But too narrow minded for me to waste time trying to explain to you why you're wrong :)

I sincerely hope that people I never met don't have any opinion on me when I'm gone!

Non-argument and a cop-out in one sentence!

Classy, as ever. I'm not sure it is quite as black and white as that. People have good and bad attributes - and you do too. So what was good was lost, it is as simple as that.

Lets get a bit more honesty and a little less iNostalgia in here. The guy was an arrogant, lying sack of crap. He WAS an innovator in his earlier years, but in the last 5 or so years he became a despot who drove the company direction based upon paranoia, greed and ego.

Does Silicon Valley miss him? I'd argue that they lament his passing, but he stood firmly in the way of innovation that he didn't control. I VERY much doubt he is missed by the valley as a general rule!

So after writing this:

I assume you wrote this because you knew the man?

Based upon news, biography and so on yes. HE was a public figure, I am not.

Mature comment as ever from Androids front man of Neowin.

Aside from Apple Steve Jobs contributed to other projects and industries. Pixar ring any bells? Toy story, that was rubbish was it?

From what do know (which isn't much because I never met him and I bet neither did you) the guy was a legend and an arse at the same time. But such tunneled vision of always thinking you are right does create masterpieces at times.

It also encourages the likes of Samsung or Google to make their OS / Hardware better just to beat the man that was so easy to hate! Hate inspires innovation in competitors, so that part of him whether you realise it or not will be missed.

No wonder he's missed in Silicon Valley. He really was irreplaceable. It'd be hard to find as good a village idiot with so many smart people around.

I don't think Steve Jobs affected my life in such a way that I hated the guy.

But then again he DID indirectly give us Finding Nemo. ... Grrrr. :rofl:

I'd class this news the same as an article mourning the loss of L. Ron Hubbard written by Tom Cruise.

It's true that Apple clearly needed his input. Without him, they're just playing catch up to the trend rather than setting it.

Ok, every post about apple, everyone rags on Boz for his opinions which he is entitled to state. He us staying on topic, his posts put states his opinions and just because people don't agree with them doesn't mean he is being immature or trolling. Some need to look up the definitions of both and look at their own comments

Job is missed because he knew how to make things happen and make sure products are tested and ready for market with little to no issues. This started failing with the 4s and his health. He hasn't been an innovator for some time.

When jobs was healthy, things just worked and there were few problems. That is what people must, Imo.. Products that just worked

I think SJ would turn over in his grave if he knew how horrible the map service was on the iPhone 4 and it doesn't look like it got any better on the 5. I don't think he would of allowed for the release of the iPhone 5 with such bad terrain mapping.

Apple might miss him but I'd be surprised if anyone else in the tech industry does.

Besides his friends, family and possibly co-workers...I doubt anyone sincerely misses Steve Jobs. We might all miss his ability to deliver keynote speeches where he can tell the audience complete nonsense and lies with a straight face but that's not really a good reason.

If he'd cured some disease or something like that then fine. But missing a hard nosed businessman selling overpriced goods? I'll pass.

I miss Steve Jobs. Apple ain't Apple without him. Love him or hate him, the guy was a perfectionist and had a great sense of drama and mystique.

You know, I figured myself to be the last guy who'd ever miss Steve Jobs if anything happened to him.

Now, here I am, a few years later, a little more wiser, and seeing the state of things... I gotta say, I do kind of miss him being around. Don't think Apple is Apple without them. Maybe it was good that he went out on a high note though.

Perfectionist? He'd blame everyone else including the users/consumers if something went wrong. He was just an asshat.
