Samsung And Google Postpone Huge Android Announcement Out Of Respect For Steve Jobs


Steve Kovach wrote in interesting article in the Business Inside, you can see he piece here.

STOP THE PRESS: A Google spokesperson said “We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing.”

Are you MAD, this is not respect this is political and social correctness of the lowest order.

Steve Jobs’s is tragic for his family and friends. But do Samsung and Google really think his family and friends will give one hoot for any news about some HUGE Android announcement? If Steve Jobs could he would be falling over with laughter.

Get grip guys, if you have an announcement then make it!

I you are holding back due to some strange notion that it will make converts out of all the iPhone lovers holding vigils, then you are so wrong!

About the only way you will do that would be if the announcement said your next Android would look like Number Six (plaid by Tricia Helfer) from Battlestar Galactica.

On the other hand if your development flopped and you can’t make the announcement then be honest about it. Don’t try and hide behind a man’s death.

 

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs dies aged 56


Steve Jobs has died age 56, Steve Jobs announced he was suffering from pancreatic cancer in 2004.

I have never been a Mac fan, and I love my Windows Phone 7 over my old iPhone. But the death of any one transcends the politics of technological preferences.

Steve Jobs death will feel like the end of the world to his family and friends so I give my sincere condolences to his family and friends.

However let’s not to turn a family tragedy into a media circus. Even as I put fingers to keyboard millions are dying from war, famine, poverty, ecological disaster, and thousands of manmade plagues, in far worse ways. Many of those unfortunates will die alone, unloved, uncared for; their passing will be an unregistered statistic in a morgue if they are lucky.

Steve Jobs, had a good life, he made a name for himself, doing what he loved, how he liked, and with more freedom and money than most of us will ever dream of. His passion granted him the freedom to give his family a good education, freedom, and a good life; in short his life was not so bad.

Let his family and friends mourn in peace, in their own time, and their own way.
