I respect the man's vision, energy, and creativity. I was not a fan of his egomania or style. He wanted to be remembered as Thomas Edison, more likely to be remembered as P.T. Barnum.

Woz had his place, before the accident and when Apple was a niche micro company he was needed. He had the ability to make Jobs dreams come to fruition. Don't be confused on the designs for the Apple I or II. Jobs had the design portion not in an EE way but in a form and function way. Woz was wildly needed at this point they couldn't afford to pay someone to do it. Once they had a group of EE's he never contributed anything again. Not sure if its because the accident or what. He is a good guy, he contributed a spark that helped ignite Apple. Thats his legacy.

Your well known hate for all things Apple blinds you seeing Jobs for what he was. He was Edison in his own way. Edison was an absolute dick and stepped on peoples faces to get ahead. It really doesn't matter, society owes both Jobs and Edison a heartfelt thank you. If Apple never existed the world loses at least 5 years of computer evolution.

The man had more influence that I was aware. Apparently unemployment claims rose slightly ahead of the Jobs report.

Steve Jobs' Estranged Father Never Got Phone Call He Waited For

By COLLEEN CURRY | ABC News

Steve Jobs' estranged father, who had given up his infant son for adoption, had been hoping that his grown son would call him. That hope died today.

Abdulfattah John Jandali had emailed his son a few times in a tentative effort to make contact. The father never called the son because he feared Jobs would think the dad who had given him up was now after his fortune. And Jobs never responded to his father's emails.

"I really don't have anything to say," Jandali, vice president at Boomtown Hotel Casino in Reno, Nev., told the International Business Times.

Jandali, a Syrian immigrant, had been quoted by the New York Post recently saying he didn't know until just a few years ago that the baby he and his ex-wife, Joanne Simpson, gave up grew to be Apple's CEO.

Jandali told the Post that had it been his choice, he would have kept the baby. But Simpson's father did not approve of her marrying a Syrian, so she moved to San Francisco to have the baby alone and give him up for adoption.

Steve Jobs Secretive Private Life

Jandali, who is 80, said at the time that he would have been happy to just have a cup of coffee with the son he never knew before it was too late. Stories of Jobs' battle with a form of pancreatic cancer and his liver transplant were public and Jobs' health had deteriorated to the point where he was forced to resign as CEO of Apple.

He was quoted as saying, "This might sound strange, though, but I am not prepared, even if either of us was on our deathbeds, to pick up the phone to call him."

Though he was one of the world's most famous CEOs, Steve Jobs has remained stubbornly private about his personal life, ignoring the media and the public's thirst for knowledge about him ever since he co-founded Apple Computer in 1976.

He was so successful at keeping the details of his life out of the celebrity pages that a Pew poll in June 2010 found that only 41 percent of Americans correctly identified Jobs as head of Apple. A CBS poll that year concluded that 69 percent of Americans didn't know enough about Jobs to have an opinion about him.

Jobs personal life was a story of extremes. Given up for adoption, he created a worldwide giant of a company in his garage, dated movie stars, and had a child out of wedlock who he denied for many years.

Many fans know that Jobs and his wife, Laurene Powell, have been married for more than 20 years; the two were married in a small ceremony in Yosemite National Park in 1991, live in Woodside, Calif., and have three children: Reed Paul, Erin Sienna, and Eve.

Less well-known are the other members of his family. He has a daughter, Lisa Brennan Jobs, born in 1978 with his high school girlfriend, Chris Ann Brennan.
His sister is Mona Simpson, the acclaimed writer of books like "Anywhere But Here." Jobs did not meet Simpson until they were adults, when he was seeking information on his birth parents. Simpson later wrote a book based on their relationship. In the book, "A Regular Guy," Simpson shed light on Jobs's relationship with Brennan and his daughter, Lisa.

Fortune magazine reported that Jobs denied paternity of Lisa for years, at one point swearing in a court document that he was infertile and could not have children. According to the report, Chris Ann Brennan collected welfare for a time to support the child, until Jobs later acknowledged Lisa as his daughter.
The college dropout was a millionaire by the age of 25 and on the cover of Time by 26. By 30, he was starting a second company, NeXT.

During those years, though, Jobs also lived an exciting personal life. He also began a relationship with singer Joan Baez, according to Elizabeth Holmes, a friend and classmate. In "The Second Coming of Steve Jobs," Holmes tells biographer Alan Deutschman that Jobs broke up with his serious girlfriend to "begin an affair with the charismatic singer-activist." Holmes confirmed these details to ABC News.

Deutschman's book also says Jobs went on a blind date with Diane Keaton; went out with Lisa Birnbach, author of "The Preppy Handbook;" and hand delivered computers to celebrities he admired.

Whatever their relationship, Woz is worth at least a hundred mill. So maybe he and steve werent best mates, but the partnership was clearly beneficial to both of them.

And frankly, I don't understand why you're just coming to shit on the guy when he's down. I know you 'don't like to speak ill of the dead' but you went and did it anyway.

Who gives a damn if he wasn't a nice guy? Especially in the last ten years, he's been the most influential man in the world of technology. He re-built a dying company by learning from his mistakes, and turned it into the biggest company in the world.

Take a day off; what are the odds your precious Android ever gets developed if Apple never bothers to get into the phone game?
