Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, the Apple visionary, who was responsible for the iPhone, iPad and many other devices we use today, who sadly died after a long fight with pancreatic cancer, leaving a grand legacy of innovation, technological progress and creativity as well as a company that continues to create popular consumer electronics and software used the world over. Adding to our grief is the fact that Bob Hope, the popular comedian whose talents entertained thousands of US soldiers during his many USO tours as well as millions of civilian audiences in America and beyond passed away in his home at the age of 100, having lived a long, fruitful life of generosity and service to his country. While Bob Hope may have done service to his country, Johnny Cash did service to country MUSIC, writing many of the most recognizable songs of the 20th century, including "I Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire", both number 1 hits and influencing the direction of country music in the 60s, 70s and beyond. Now, while all these men were important in their own right there is one thread that connects the three of them even though they may not have ever been in the same room at the same time: the fact that all three of them had surnames that served two functions: not only did they signify the families they came from, they also functioned as dictionary words, taking on second, unintended meanings. For instance, Steve Jobs had the surname "Jobs" which is also an English word for multiple occupations. Bob Hope's surname "Hope" also has a second meaning: an expectation of a desired outcome Last but not least, Johnny Cash's surname, "Cash", carries a second meaning as well: that of a slang term for currency, typically paper currency. These three words, Jobs, Hope and Cash, are significant because due to the recent economic downturn, all three of them are in short supply. Coincidentally, the men whose names contained these words died around the same time the concepts the words represented became scarce, which leads us to the hilarious observation that Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash - Now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.

Old. People have been using this joke since Steve Jobs died, including the part where someone says "O God I hope that Kevin Bacon doesn't die!", and it was barely funny the first time. Nice try buddy.

Yeah he kind of was. Not to mention a patent troll who constantly stole other peoples ideas.

If you want to treat someone like a tech messiah, it should be Dennis Ritchie.

Without him, we wouldn't have Unix, Linux, C (or any variations of C), DOS, Windows, or any Apple products whatsoever. No generic text languages (we'd still be using binary code), no apps/programs. no internet.....

Modern computers as we know them simply wouldn't exist without Dennis Ritchie.

no one cares. and they probably would. technological advances work differently than marketing/business advances, in that technological advances represent the natural progression of technology. In that it improves and there are those who strive to make it improve.

When it comes to the economy, business models are not necessarily "progress" in any discernible form, but rather a different way of doing things. Steve Jobs (helped) change consumerism forever. He has had a significant cultural impact.

Ritchie had an enormous scientific impact that probably would have been achieved by someone else, because it was just scientific progress.
