cool story bro.
maybe I'm ignorant, so why don't you explain it to me: whats cool about working non stop all your life then up and die and have all your efforts go to others?
I understand you want your family/kids to be set up and all that, but after you're "set" then what? you're telling me that doing work (no matter how cool it is) going to meetings, putting together presentations, lots of thinking/planning/decisions/projects brings PERSONAL satisfaction to people? So instead of doing awesome things, relaxing, vacationing, spending time w/ family/loved ones seeing the world, ETC ETC ETC you'd rather be working? no matter how cool your job is?

You live in Sacramento and like penises in your butt. That doesn't mean everyone else likes those things.

Steve Jobs will be remembered as the person who pulled the biggest vendor lock-in schemes in IT history.

You want a Mac? It can only run Mac OS X
You want Mac OS X? It will only run on a Mac
You want an iPod? It will only work with iTunes
You want to listen songs you bought from the iTunes store? Only on the iPod and on iTunes
You want to download apps for your iPhone? Only from the iTunes app store

And the list goes on.

Actually, I think what's interesting about him is that he did those things and, for the most part, nobody cared.

Sony tried the same proprietary crap and it didn't sell because the end product wasn't that great.

Apple did it, at a higher price than its competitors, and couldn't meet demand because people were happy to be locked into the Apple world.

I understand that some, like yourself, might like the penises in their mouth too, which makes us completely different people with different tastes, but...

I was being serious.
If his answer to my question is: "yes, some people really do prefer those things and want nothing more in life but to work their *** off til they croak" then my mind will be blown.
That's just sad.

Please explain whats sad about that.

My dad is 70 and still works pouring concrete 6 days a week like a ******* champ. Why? Because he ******* WANTS to. I'll bet he could outwork your sorry *** any day of the week. Yet you have the nerve to say its sad?

Some people like to work. Some people take PRIDE in what they do. Others just live week to week, waiting for that pension so they can sit around on their *** and "retire". To me, that's sad.

lmao umad bro?
calm down
This aint about your dad or his pension. You said yourself that if he wanted to stop he has absolutely nothing to fall back on. Therefore he has no choice. Might as well like what you're doing if you have no choice right?

Jobs had a shitton of money. That's the kind of people I'm talking about. The ones that are "set" and don't need anything at all, but choose to work their *** off til their last day.........Opinions are like ********, I happen to have a different one from you and y8s

I'm not mad at all bub.

My father doesn't have a pension btw.

You need to work to make money, but just because you have a "shitton" doesn't mean you shouldn't keep working. Just like opinions and ********, ways of life are different as well.
