ok, so a 9 million euro boat? holy crap! That boat better have a mall, movie theater, spa, gym, guest housing, galley, nuclear power, solar power, desalination, garden, ...just basically self sufficient all around for that price. That's more than most mansions...

As mentioned in these articles, Jobs was a very private person and he was the same in anonymously donating to charities.

And personally I think charity is a very personal and private matter. It doesn't need to boasted around the world to gain acclaim. Gates is not wrong if he is being acclaimed for giving billions to charity because he also raises awareness to causes that his foundation supports. This was the difference between Gates and Jobs. Both did donate to charities, but only Gates really stood up to raise awareness to the causes/charities that he was supporting.

NOTE: Earlier post - The prices were supposedly in "€" and not "$."

Thank you for the sources :)

Just want to point out that butts are not ugly. At least not on a female. ;)

Did you read the article?

I wouldn't pay the bill. Just do what any sensible person would do and wait for next year when the Yacht Nano comes out for less money.
