Taiwanese Animators Take On Steve Jobs' Biography

By - Source: NMA.tv | B 17 comments

No important event is complete without its own special Taiwanese animation.

Next Media News' CGI animations have become a staple for us. The company, which recreates news stories with humorous animations, started with the Tiger Woods last year and never seems to fail to make us laugh. NMN often covers tech news, and in the last few weeks the network has covered the rumored sale of Yahoo!, Apple's Siri personal assistant, the recent Blackberry outage, and, of course, the death of Steve Jobs.

This week, they're focusing on Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography, which hit store shelves and e-tail sites this past Monday. Check out the cartoon below.

    Easy role, rip everyone off as much as possible while forcing them into a sheep pen, have your company sue every other competitor who have a superior product and don't donate a dime in charity while the workers producing the items sold commit suicide due to the working conditions. Shame i cant sink so low or the role would been easy to get into!

    John McCarthy died on the 24th too. He invented LISP.

    Steve Jobs invented nothing. He was a good observer and refined the products that failed into succesful products.
    I hope he MUST use Android, where ever he is now :_)

    __-_-_-__I would like if they interview some of the ex foxcon workers that suicide from the poor working conditions that apple supported.

    Steve is currently stood in the middle of a queue of people waiting to get into hell's equivalent of the pearly gates, there is a line of Foxconn suicide victims in front of him and it's taking a loooooong time to get in.

    Who cares, the guy is an ahole for the reasons below:

    1. Scammed Wocz and lied to him for his ideas. Best BFF ever.

    2. Gave two-#$*& about his employees. Terrible manager from others perspectives online.

    3. Californian. **Yeah Herbal meds really helped you in the end huh?**

    4. Didn't believe in families.

    5. Started to believe in God in the end? He thought he was God himself until oops.

    Hitler, Bin Laden, Stalin and Jeffrey Dahmer are all dead too
    Should I respect them?
    ...
    Simply being not alive anymore does not confer an instant respect status on someone, I feel sorry for Steve Jobs family and friends, but he was still an a-hole.

    I also wonder if Jobs is facing those suicide victims face to face in the here after. So Steve, what do you have to say now?

    Retaliating a general statement with such extreme cases does not warrant a higher moral point. Ok, wtf am I talking about? NM, all I want to say is, you may feel like he is a-hole, but he is dead and you are not. You win :)  and just leave the dead along. Personally, I and my family actually enjoy Apple's product a lot, I hold no grudge for him.

    While I haven't agreed with a lot of Apple over the years, Jobs had directly/indirectly pushed technology where it is today, and for that I thank you Jobs. Only Apple product I have actually owned is an iPod and hope to keep it that way.

    But one thing that always sticks with me about Jobs (in a bad way) and how he views his employees and work ethic is:

    "90 hours a week and loving it"

    You will be missed Steve, even though I haven't agreed with most of your practices over the past 25 years. You did have a vision Steve, but I wouldn't call it revolutionary.

    In general, people that bring up Hitler and Stalin in a comparison cannot be taken seriously.

    I do not agree with Jobs, but it's important to calm down. As we say, "dead men have no mouths".
