The Atlantic Wire reports on Steve Jobs’ belief in an afterlife:
I remember sitting in his back yard in his garden one day, and he started talking about God. He said, Sometimes I dont. Its 50-50. But ever since Ive had cancer Ive been thinking about it more, and I find myself believing a bit more. Maybe thats because I want to believe in an afterlife, that when you die it doesnt just all disappear. The wisdom youve accumulated, somehow it just lives on. But then he paused for a second and he said, Yeah but sometimes I think its like an on-off switch. Click, and youre gone, he said. Paused again and said, And thats why I dont put on-off switches on Apple devices.”
Of course, most Apple products do have power buttons. Make of it what you will.
