Steve Jobs death certificate: 'respiratory arrest'
Memorial service set for October 19
Steve Jobs died at home from respiratory arrest and a pancreatic tumor, according to his death certificate, which was obtained by The Wall Street Journal.
In a memo to Apple employees, the WSJ reports, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that Apple will hold an employees-only memorial event at the Apple campus at 10am Pacific time on Wednesday, October 19.
That event, as Cook wrote in a public announcement on October 5, will be "a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life." ®
Is this REALLY necessary?
Didn't really care for the chap...but stuff like this is simply TMI...and in poor taste to report.
How about just leaving the family alone?
To those claiming "we didn't need to know this"...
... what are you? Royalty or something? That's incredibly arrogant. You speak for yourselves, and nobody else. You sure as blazes do not speak for me.
Nobody forces you to read about a topic that so clearly irritates you, and nobody forces you to not only open the article, but to click in the "Post your own message" section and start ranting like a frothing narcissistic imbecile.
Contrary to what your ego believes to be impossible, I _was_ genuinely interested in reading this short article. Given the Westboro Baptist Church's recent hypocritical shrieks, I did wonder whether they actually carried out their threat to picket the funeral, or were merely making an empty threat. It appears not, and the Jobs family got to say their farewells in peace. Which is actually good news, for once.
Oh please... instead of saying "the patent holder has not toed the Pharmaceutical Industry line" would it not have been more accurate to state "no independent trial has produced any evidence that his alleged treatments work". Oh wait, that's part of the immense cover-up put in place by "Corporate America" correct?
Get a fucking grip El Reg
This is just rubbernecking.
In other important news....
"Steve Jobs had blue slippers."
"Steve Jobs actually had three pairs of spectacles."
