Except that I am communicating directly with the person who then has a chance to reply, whereas Steve Jobs is not here to defend himself, his actions or those of his company's.

I don't debate the point. I agree with you in fact. What sets me back is the particular loathing some of the comments about Apple and Steve Jobs seem to indicate. Go ahead and say you think Apple is wrong. I think they have been wrong about a lot of things. There are some things they did with Server I am fairly incensed about. But isn't calling Steve Jobs a dictator and control freak in another category all together?
