Steve Jobs : More Money Than God


Apple Computer’s latest cash figures have been compared to the cash on hand figures of the United States Government by the media over the past few days.

As of Wednesday, July 27, the balance sheet for the US Treasury dipped down to $73.768 billion. That compares to the $76.156 billion Apple has in its deep coffers — a difference of more than $2 billion.

I really think it is time to hear from Mr. Jobs! I am ready for one of his unique quotes to put a realistic, but sarcastic spin on it. In earlier years, Mr. Jobs was noted for some of his radical quotes including:

Bill Gates‘d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger.

and

The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.

Mr. Jobs also has a love for the Beatles.

It was 1966 when John Lennon leveraged his time in the public eye with the famous quote “We are more popular than Jesus”.

The whole message was : “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I’m right and I’ll be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first—rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.”

This iconic quote would fit so well with Jobs in his current success. Apple has more money than the US Government, and Jobs swims not only in that pool, but also in the Disney / Pixar pool of money.

So I would love to hear from his own lips: ” Hello, My name is Steve Jobs, and I have more money than god!”

Not bad for a kid from Reed College.
