Steve Jobs tragedy
Son and Father
Being estranged from his father and mother, didn’t hold Steve back. A genius can’t stop being one.
I enjoy the fact that Steve comes from Syrian heritage as that underscores the importance of our diverse America that gives all who can enter an opportunity to become great if they can.
Sad is the relationship between son and father. Sometimes those relationships are never the best, but surely Steve’s situation is one of the saddest.
“In an interview for CBS's 60 Minutes, Mr. Isaacson said: "Mona goes to the coffee shop, meets this guy Mr Jandali who's running it, who says among other things when she asks, how sorry he is.
"Then he said that he had had another child. Mona said: 'What happened to him?' and he said: 'Oh, I don't know, we'll never hear from him again'."
Mr Jandali then said that he wished Miss Simpson could have seen him running his old Mediterranean restaurant, which he said was "one of the best in Silicon Valley".
"Everyone used to eat there," he said. "Even Steve Jobs."
As Miss Simpson stayed silent but "looked shocked", Mr Jandali added: "Yeah, he was a great tipper!", according to Mr Isaacson.”
