    I really don't get your beef the dude is dying, he's had to pull out of his company because of this, he's done so in a manor which causes minimal brand damage to that company, knowing that everytime he's appeared recently it's damaged the stock levels of his company. He's now accepted he can no longer continue, as all cancer patients do at the end.

    What part of this don't you get?

    if lcuky and with sufficent money to be able to afford care until you can no longer continue then most cancer suffers in his condition go from being reasonably ok within the obivous circumstances to becoming rapidly and degeneratively ill within a short period of time.

    He always said he'd continue until he couldn't. now he's saying he can't. when someone with cancer says sorry I can't do it anymore then it usually means that sadly the cancer has beaten them.

    All of which is conveyed quite eloquently within my posts.

    only someone with massive mental illness could ever see that as dancing on someones as yet undug grave... you need some serious professional help.

    As for who it was, that's really none of your business is it...

    The thing is, this sort of "promotion" into a supposedly very senior but effectively sinecure position is not actually that uncommon in the executive world. For many of the reasons Garf cites too - To protect the brand, company value and to ensure the fullest settlement for families. I've seen it happen several times over my working life and in one instance, it was undoubtedly because the ailing exec had almost certainly contracted his particular form of cancer as a direct result of his work in the days he held a more junior position and his firm were doing their utmost to avoid any action against them.

    and also because despite the concept of all corporates are evil usually there's a culture of wanting to try and do right by your staff in these type of circumstances...

    but saying this makes you vile according to the church of the latter day looney which gabi ascribes too...

    Seek professional help Gabi you really, really, really need it...

    I saw the thread and thought, oh nice, two pages. I wonder what thoughtful discussion the urbanites are having, then i check it and I'm like 'oh fuck, pointless bunfight'

    It's an Apple thread, there's always beef even if unrelated to Apple.

    But this has extra super-sweary beef putting the sensible posts in the minority.

    you've never met me or for that matter had any contact with me or anyone who knows me as in has had contact with me, what the hell are you talking about. anyone who's met me even for 5 minutes would say your characterisation is entirely wrong... even the editor doesn't think me mental in real life even though he thinks I'm an arse...

    you only ever know of rumours of me and what happens and in any case as I've said nothing to warrant your lies or attack.

    you need to fess up you bullshitted cos you misread or misunderstood a comment made a knee jerk reaction and then looked like a fool when you were called on it...

    how about you just stop posting rather than digging the hole deeper...

    TMZ posts a new photo, have to say the way he's dressed and his hair being a bit messy makes him look worse but is he really that much skinnier than he's been at any recent Apple event?

    like i said 3 to 4 weeks sadly.

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    see more of your bullshit.

    you are the one enjoying this ... you sick fuck...

    and I've never met you. ever. I'd have punched someone as nasty as you without a second thought...
  17. Kid_Eternity

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    He's looked like that for some time, not saying he isn't ill (I think he is pretty much at an end, the resignation, the book timing with it's full disclosure) just my first thought was this is what I imagined he'd look like out of his crisp hair do, and jean and tee get up...

    It looks like he can't even stand up unaided anymore. It's horrible that these sort of pap shots even get published to be honest.

    skin looks more papery than it has done previously but maybe that's been make up etc.

    Can't you two hire a boxing ring and take your macho fightin' talk off the boards please?

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    and again another attack nothign to do with the thread and certainly no relevance to me.

    why not STFU

    you saw something which wasn't there, you're too immature to admit it and now you're just derailing the thread with your continued nonsense...
  23. GarfieldLeChat

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    I hardly feel you're one to talk...

    lulz. you're a joke mr LeChat. take your aggro to another thread pleeeease. this ones about the sad decline of someone who added to this world we live in, not you.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    I thought this, his neck isn't normally on show like that either which shows how skinny he is.

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    wtf is wrong with you the ONLY person turning this into a thread about me is you you sick mental idiot...

    every post of mine was ontopic until you posted... you mental you've derailed it and made it about me now fuck the fuck off.

    if the editor had any balls he'd have deleted you mindless posted and removed you from the thread for your derailment but as he's currently pissed off cos I dared to comment on his beef with rory he'd ratehr l;et it fester than do a mods job, which considering is fucking ironic... STFU just don't address me I don't know you am not saying what you think I'm saying haven't said it and no matter howmany fuckign times you say it it won't change that.

    as I'm the one who decided my fucking motiation you class asshat I know whether I was celebrating the mans demise or pointing out the sad reality of someone dying of cancer from very recent and very personal experince.

    SO STFU.

    editor do you fucking job...
  27. GarfieldLeChat

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    no I think thats the last days of the drugs which will have taken their toll on him.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    How would you know? Look at any recent photo and point out when he's not wearing a polo or high cut top?
  29. Kid_Eternity

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    On another note, it is a slightly odd photo, almost looks composed which makes me wonder if this is part of the media management?

    patently clear.

    as I hope the pm explains in more detail. :)
