    apple fan detected… :P
    he was nothing more than a common good businessman, its just apple fans who made him GOD.
    just compare him with his buddy and old colleague bill gates and he’ll start fading…

  • Abdul Basit

    so what do u think what bill gates is ?

    • Atif

      a better businessman :)

      • ImranG

        Bill gates is also a programmer and one the greatest humanitarian ever.

        • Taha Najam

          Yup. Bill was one of the best coders of his time. Steve didn’t know a thing about computer programming.

        • Atif

          True, that’s why i said just compare him and steve will just fade away.

  • But we are not here treating him as GOD, author is just sharing some great quotes by him.

  • The Blessed Guy

    Bhaiyya jan chor Steve Bob ki… Univ college, jidher dekho, log isi ko qoute kr rahy hoty q k it is a fashion now to set ur watsapp status as ” Stay hungry, stay foolish”…. Guys he was just another businessman who successfully trolled Americans & then rest of the world eventually..

    • He was an inspiring person and I don’t understand how he trolled people. In fact modern computers, tablet, music and tablets would be far backward if not for him

      • Atif

        app kee liyee slomotion clapps

        • Aap kar bhi bas yehi saktay ;) btw Read up about him instead of getting on the hate bandwagon just because it’s trendy to do so

          • Taha Najam

            Ha, have you? Guy was a jealous hipster crook who built his empire on stealing ideas from others. Guess the writer conveniently forgot one of his quotes: “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.” Plus he never did any of the work himself, just bossed people around and was extremely rude to his employees. No wonder they kicked him out of his own company. He was scrictly against charity too.

            • Atif

              Absolutely and Apple just buy technology and lable as their innovation.

          • Atif

            I’m not hating, and trendy is to praise him.
            I hate fake praising .

  • Adeel

    Lord of the entrepreneurs.
    Hats off to the Steve Jobs
    May his soul rest in peace

  • faaria

    His achievement is creating a fanbase who made him who took him to that level. Technical achievements are one thing and fan following achievement is another. So I don’t think its fair to compare Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, They both have their own strenghts
