    yet more media outpouring, this is ridiculous.
    i don't recall as much "will there be another mother theresa" type articles written, the media really are portraying him as some sort of second coming of christ, if there's never another steve jobs type person in the world how will we cope, oh woe is us, our lives are all going to crumble.

    in answer, if you let your child become petulent, always have their way, take copious amounts of drugs, never wash, yell at people, live in their own world and refuse to listen to others, then yes, we could well have another steve jobs in the future

    What exactly does Darell Hammond mean by "play"? Aren't Arduino's and BeagleBoard's today's equivalents of HeathKits?

    You also have tons of open source software and operating systems which people can tinker with, along with iPad apps like Codify too.

    Journalist's will do anything to create sensationalist headlines these days. Apparently Microsoft's Steven Sinofsky, Apple's Jonathan Ive and Scott Forstall are the next Steve Jobs. Perhaps they could all job share?
