    I know the topic is about Jobs, but... on an unrelated topic, I bet you 200 bucks in plants they'll be proven wrong

    It was traveling 60 nanoseconds faster than the true speed of light.

    Just to weigh in. I'm a nuclear engineer so have had a considerable amount of coursework on subatomic particles/modern physics.

    While it IS true that their results show neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light, both the scientists that published the results as well as the scientific community in general are mostly of the opinion that it is due to a flaw or oversight in the experiment itself, namely, how the speed is measured and what could have gone wrong with it.

    The nice thing about science is replication...if those results cannot be obtained again then there obviously was some error.

    RIP Steve Jobs.
    Stay foolish, stay hungry.

    and the bartender says, "sorry, we don't serve neutrinos here." A neutrino walks into a bar

    That chemistry book must be outdated... I can accelerate particles to 100% of the speed of light by flipping a light switch.

    I guess I will be the bad guy and say this...

    There is a very interesting post about Jobs in Slashdot's recent discussion, and I AGREE with it completely. In real life Jobs was not a very nice person, and by no means does he deserve any kind of worship.
    Unfortunately people are blinded by fanaticism when it comes to Apple, and I guess that merits some respect to the company.
    Apple is known for their smart advertisement campaigns and the ability to present a mediocre product (from a technological point of view) as a magical_must_have_device that every teen out there absolutely needs to have to be accepted amongst his/her peers. Steve Jobs was good at selling things, that's all.

    P.S. Ehh I turned the conversation back to Steve from a successful derailment earlier
