Steve Jobs Has Victimization Issues

In the early 80s he created a revolutionary product based on the idea that people should actually listen to Alan Kay.

Then he gets ripped off by Windows. He sues. He loses.

Microsoft proceeds to take over the world by making an inferior copy of the Macintosh into an open platform. More people want the system with the most apps than the system with the most perfect interface. Bill Gates pockets billions.

In 2010, Jobs again creates a revolutionary product based on the idea that people should actually listen to Alan Kay.

Now he's suing HTC, because Google is making an inferior copy of the iPhone into an open platform.



What does he think is going to happen? We've already seen how this story ends. More people want the system with the most apps than the system with the most perfect interface. And Steve Jobs should know this, because we all learned it by seeing what happened to him.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I say this as a fan of the inspired artist that Steve Jobs is: if it really bothers you so much to get fucked in the ass like that, why don't you just stop taking your pants off in public and bending over for no reason?
