Kinda almost funny mustang.

Weird thing is I understand Jobs last phone call was from Gates who in effect offered all the money in the world to save his rivals life only to be told there was NOTHING he could do.

Why should he care about heirs, he's dead.
He lived an amazing life.

That money he earned needs to be returned to the collective.

My DNA shows that I have a distant relation from cave dwellers in Europe. The money is mine.

All of that money should go tax free, directly to heirs that did nothing to earn it.

Can't we just reboot him?

If not, he finally reaches The Blue Screen of Death.

Its nothing short of astonishing how much money is made by a few people off of technology developed with taxpayer money.

For those who are wondering why I brought up his lack of spouse and kids he seems to have thought soon as he had enough money he'd find someone.

Instead the money made it harder to find someone.

Clear into his 60's he was still looking for love.

Not a big fan of Windows OS myself BUT I know he and his brother put computers in the hands of the masses.

Thanks and RIP

What they did was world changing... ergo it was returned to the collective... Like Thomas Edison... Henry Ford .. wanting to make something affordable to the everyday person.

Your loyalties are with the frat boy leeches Boaz-o. Those who want to line their coffers with borrowed money simply for the sake of having money.

A friend of mine was a friend of his. They went to college together. When the Seahawks went to the playoffs a few years ago Mr. Allen invited his college buddies to go along on his private jet. They were in a sky booth on the 50 yard line. Afterwards he threw a party and a bunch of rock stars showed up. Mr. Allen got up on stage and played guitar with them - my friend said he was a good player. He didn't forget his friends. A nice guy apparently.

Inbreds like boazwest cannot differentiate between the self-made and the inherited.
