Colleague's conversation with her husband:

“The Apple man has died.”

“Oh, no, that’s awful. I didn't know he was ill.”

“He’s been ill for a long time.”

“I didn’t know that.”

“He’s had cancer for ages.”

“What’s going to happen to his stall?”

“What stall?”

“His stall in Barnstaple Pannier Market."

Big sigh. “Not THAT Apple man.”

  1. Negative here. Everyone is raving about what a great guy Steve Jobs was. But from my perspective (I don't have or want an iPod, etc.) he just invented things that people really don't need and can't afford anyway (people way in over their heads with dept, etc.) So there it is.
