OK, one - make that two - final tributes to the Applemeister, and then let the world move on to the next iconic genius. Here are clips from Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on the night after news of Steve Jobs' death (succumbed to pancreatic cancer). As you might expect, there was a mix of humor and serious gratitude. Both hosts have done numerous skits over the years where they make fun of Apple products, their users, and Jobs, while also begging on-air for early samples of the next big thing. I'm a firm believer in the notion that nobody is irreplaceable, at least on an all-of-humankind scale. Isaac Newton, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Galileo Galilei contributed mightily, but each was followed by another. It's time to let the venerable Mr. Jobs rest in peace. Every person leaves his mark on the people around him, and the rare few leave a mark on the world.|
Who will be the next tech wonder? It isn't likely to be this outstanding example of an OWS Fleabagger, already leaving his personal mark on a NYPD police car. Not surprisingly, the Occupy Wall Street hippies, most of whom cannot tell reporters why they're there, specifically excuse Steve Jobs from the evils of Big Business, even though Apple has been cited numerous times for poor worker conditions in overseas factories. It proves another old notion about ignorance being bliss.
