Thank you, Steve Jobs

As messages of the grief and appreciationg being felt by so many of us that Steve Jobs has died, pour in on the news and Internet, we note that we, too, feel very sad.

Strangely, we also feel anger. It seems unjust to have such a talented, productive, creative, SOB be taken from the world by a stupid, disgusting disease so soon.

IFO has never used any products from Apple, but we feel as if we know the company and the people in it and how Steve Jobs affected them over the years. We admired him and we will miss him.

This reminds us of how angry we felt when Jackie Kennedy died. We didn’t know her either. Never read any of the books she wrote or edited. She was too young, too.

It’s partly the fault of the media. They cover these accomplished, beautiful people extensively. So, we feel as if we know them well.

Maybe they are a substitute for the saints we used to venerate, and for much the same reason – in a way, these people are better than we are. They have characteristics we wish we had. There is something very good about having excellent people to observe and perhaps emulate.

Thank you, Steve Jobs.

  1. It looks like this website is an excellent source of information for financial and investing info. I’ve begun considering getting Swiss annuities to get a source of retirement money but need more information first. Switzerland seems like a good place to make investments, & I am very curious whether this applies to Swiss annuities too. Do they feature an equal asset protection as Swiss banks? What about confidentiality? Any advice would be really appreciated.

  2. You sound pretty educated with regards to finance and investments, and I usually benefit from reading your blogging site. I’m thinking about adding more Swiss annuities to my retirement portfolio. What do you think about them? Are they as safe as many people say they are?
