Here is one of my favorite stories exemplifying what kind of person he REALLY was...

Stealing over $2000 from his "friend" who did ALL the work... That's a pretty huge chunk of money for a mid-level engineer in 1976.
People NEVER change when they grow up. Fact.

Just because you read a few anecdotes of him that don't paint him particularly well doesn't mean you know him and whether or not he was a good person. Sorry, but true.

Eat shit, jobs. Or eat yourself, I guess. Wait, you can't eat.
There is a reason you got it for $70 bucks.. When they first came out they were the same price as the similar ipods

You didn't know him personally. I didn't know him personally. He may have been an asshole. He may not have been.

But Woz obviously didn't feel overly wronged by it, as they continued their relationship up until the time Jobs died. So, I'm not exactly why you're angrier about it than the guy who got screwed. We don't know what happened between them since that incident. Maybe Jobs said "Hey, I was a real asshole. Let me make it up to you." I don't know.

That really has no bearing on his amazing tech and business accomplishments, though.

Nor do you know him to be a good person. At least I have a great deal more evidence showing him to have been a prick than you have showing him to be decent.

After resuming control of Apple in 1997, Jobs eliminated all corporate philanthropy programs.

One former manager, for example, recalled that Jobs told an entire team of engineers they would be losing their jobs right after they came back from Christmas vacation.

You don't have to know a person to know what they have done and how those actions make them the kind of person they are...

Why are people making excuses for this guy? Seriously.

I'll give him credit, he may have been the most effective cult leader of all time. He certainly controlled his public image better then anyone I have ever heard of.
