OK, so it wasn't just a casual slur. It was an attempt at a clinical diagnosis. Again, do you have a source for this?bipedalhumanoid wrote:No, anyone whose sense of entitlement and empathy hasn't matured beyond what can be reasonably expected from a 5 year old is a narcissist. In extreme cases it can be described as a personality disorder (NPD), a god complex or even sociopathy. These are not virtues.
What do you imagine is the correct way to pluralise "s"? Ss, ses, esses, "s"s, or something else? Using an apostrophe for plurals of individual letters is generally deemed acceptable.Ok, but what do the 3 S letters own? Why the apostrophe?
Which of the cases in your link is about the behaviour of Steve Jobs?It's always interesting to see how people try to justify bullying. Usually the next step is to blame the victims. Bullying destroys lives. There is NO excuse. Anyway, 100% my arse. You don't get 100% out of people who work 90 hours/week. Actively seeking to turn sections of your staff against each other also doesn't achieve anything particularly productive. He viewed his staff as his minions and himself as their messiah. He manipulated them like pawns on a chessboard for his personal enjoyment.
Read some of these stories about the impact that bullying in the workplace has on people and then come back and tell me again that it's ok because Jobs was a "perfectionist".
Did you read that link apart from the title? Apple lead the industry in trying to stamp out child labour and other dangerous and illegal practices. I've no doubt that they're not as blameless as they should be, but it seems odd to try to paint Steve Jobs as someone who chooses to employ children.How nice of them. They also use child labour.
A successful IT company needs more than expert programmers and engineer, as you yourself seem to understand. Steve Jobs' record speaks for itself. If he was just stealing ideas, he wouldn't have been so successful so often.It's a fairly typical scenario in IT. A technical person or team conceptualises, designs and develops something innovative. Someone else comes along and steals it or otherwise takes credit for it.
IMO this is what lead to the .com bubble. Developers who were tired of seeing this happen, started forming companies without bringing on board people with business expertise. It didn't work out well, but as someone who took the other route, I can fully understand why they did it.
I haven't seen it, but the summaries I've found don't seem to paint him too badly. Jobs himself didn't seem too upset about it.Anyone who thinks it's appropriate to worship this man should watch the movie "The Pirates of Silicon Valley". Steve Wozniac has confirmed that the movie is an accurate depiction of events.
I still don't understand your hatred of this man, especially its intensity. Is there something you've left out?
