Sackcloth and ashes app

Am I the only one in the world who doesn't give a f-ck about Steve Jobs passing? (beyond the fact that it is too bad someone passed away in his prime) Memorials at Apple Stores, really? All I am asking for is a lil perspective because the lamentations among the grieving global masses in sackclothes and ashes is getting a bit out of hand. Tech industry wants to mourn, fine. But let's hold off the beatification.

PS: WaPo journalist Paul Farhi, who wrote well about the media-fueled 9/11 anniversary gestalt, wrote a great piece that on the media and this bout of mourning.  He also cited a great piece in Gawker that Jobs was not God.  And to be frank, Jobs wasn't always even all that nice either.
