Steve Jobs dies
of course it's not tube or Dynaco related, but Steve was truly an icon of the past 30 years.
Here are some super comments that were found related to the announcement . . . .
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new."
- from Mr. Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
'Back in the late 70's while going to college under the GI bill, I supplemented my income by working private security part time. My security company, assigned me to a fairly new company in Santa Clara. The name of this company was Apple. While working there I had the opportunity to meet Steve Jobs. He was a very nice man who treated those around him with dignity and respect. He was so friendly and down to earth that for the longest time I did not know that he was the owner of the company. Years later, after Apple became a super giant in the computer business, I always remembered, the gentleman genious, who made his employees, even a lowly contract security guard, feel as if they were part of his team. He will be missed. God bless him and his family.'

'Steve Jobs was an inventor and innovator whose products were the "cream of the crop"...Bill Gates was like China...steal the copyright
and build it cheaper and with lots of bugs...and just as I say this I got a blue screenon my MicroSoftS**t computer ...
I am going out tomorrow and buy an Ipad...'
