    Steve Jobs 10" Statue with $40 Make-A-Wish Donation - Steve Jobs Statues

    Seriously? Is this a joke or something.

    I predict this thread already.

    Steve Jobs is my hero, he is a god blah blah blah.

    I don't care who gets the money or where the donation goes and all the other crap, why the hell did he get a statue :crazy: 

    Apple products are superior, they don't get viruses.(think about this fact thought, Apple makes nothing you would actually need to live)

    Microsoft runs the world yadda yadda(is it perfect? lord no, will it go away? not so easily)

    I just noticed he has no hammer or monitor accessories to reenact the 83? or 84? commercial :D

    Read about this on Twitter & kinda predicted someone having that sort of reaction, but its all good, and I can't help but admire Apple's ability to sell shit like this to the unwashed masses.

    However for me, I'm perfectly happy reenacting G2 Commercials with Scrapper & Mixmaster, and chances are that if I buy a statue that doesn't transform, it'll at least be a Power Ranger. Well, either that or Kane, but I guess at this point they might as well be one & the same.

    Seems to be a clever fund raiser on Make A Wishes part which has a well planned target audience for "spare" money.

    Mission accomplished.

    I had the same reaction to those McFarlane MLB figures. What a waste of resources. People actually collect those things?

    Your wrong, I don't like apple products, don't own an apple product, don't care one ounce about Steve Jobs. I mentioned neither in my post. Beside since when did 10 inches constitute a statue?

    Sorry your hatred of a company blinds you enough to look down on well planned fund raising for dying children. But I guess that's your business /shrug

    Well unless I'm mistaken, wasn't the whole "shut up and take my money!" meme coined from a Futurama episode having to do with Apple sheep?

    Ummmm its called a Steve Jobs statue.........................

    I dont like Apple, I actually own a Nano, still dont give a shit about Jobs.

    Has nothing to do with hatred either, could care less.

    I think its funny the douche is getting a statue of himself. Not like a memorial statue out in front of headquarters, but a frikking statue, like I dont know a toy or action figure.

    They should just have him tearing off his shirt with a S showing underneath and Mjolnir in his hands smashing a TV screen.

    I still think sheep are sheep no matter how u slice it and I think its funny that they are being targeted by a 10inch(his wife wishes) Steve Jobs statue(remember where I said I didnt care about Apple or its products or where the money went?)

    Its still a "collectible" statue of action figure Steve Jobs

    If you could care less, then why all the vitriol?

    I can't stand Apple, but I really couldn't care less if he has little figure of him. Why are you so heated about it? Who cares?

    You are trying way way too hard here. You need to simmer down.

    And since I was too late with it last time. If the only point of this thread was just to troll about a charity foundation why did you even post it, were you that bored? As they always say spamming is only for the fuzzy, not that this is worthy to go there :lol

    Why is this such a big deal? There are action figures/statues/bobbleheads/whatever available for any number of politicians, actors, atheletes and other real people and no one seems to be flipping out about those.

    I do think it would be a better use of one's money to just donate $100 directly to Make-A-Wish, but if people want a statue of Steve Jobs that's their choice.

    No, because he's not dead.

    Didn't Jobs actually cut all of Apple's charity donations when he came back on board in the mid 90's?
