But what is totally UNFORGIVABLE, in my opinion, was the careless way it was produced. TIME took my all-time favorite photo of a young Steve Jobs and enlarged it to cover a 2-page spread. But TIME didn't even bother to account for the binding of the pages at the spine where the two pages meet, and a substantial portion of Steve's face is completely missing! Book binding is not rocket science, but this mess didn't even bother with typical STANDARD PUBLISHING PROCEDURES, WHICH SHOULD ALWAYS INCLUDE PROOFING & ACCOUNT FOR THE GUTTER AREA ON SPREADS!!
How utterly disrespectful to Steve Jobs to cut off his face like that. I hope TIME doesn't make a dime off of this shoddy, ill-conceived, greed-motivated, poorly produced mess!
Shame on TIME Magazine.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!
Time makes another attempt to explain Jobs in this memorial issue. Readers learn he was a difficult child (not hard to imagine) and fortunate to have supportive adoptive parents, that he learned very little in college - even in the months that he attended Reed College informally, that he was sometimes inconsistent - denying paternity of daughter Lisa, despite resenting being 'abandoned' by his birth father, that he made the bulk of his fortune from the sale of Pixar to Disney for $7.4 billion in 2006 (Disney had the opportunity to buy it for $10 million, but Katzenbach nixed the deal - maybe this was why Disney paid Katzenbach 'only' $250 million after being forced out of the company). He was also always learning from others - eg. original Apple investor Mike Markula and John Scully, even though they later became opponents, those on Apple's board (especially Jerry York, former CFO of Chrysler and IBM, and Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO), and others (eg. Andrew Grove, former Intel CEO). Jobs also had a knack for attracting and usually retaining 'A' players.Read more ›

Who could not be touched by this beautiful man, OK, perhaps not Bill Gates, but, Steve did so much for all of us in so many ways. Read morePublished on November 29, 2011 by D C Rose
