    He did screw up financially with that move in 85. Jobs ends up a billionaire and Stevie, a poor 100 million. Maybe we should donate some money to HIS cause.....

    I suspect he's doing fine.

    I imagine so. He never wanted to really be part of the Apple as it became.

    Jobs' billions didn't prevent him from being a retard and refusing cancer treatment.

    Treatments for cancer aren't trivial. For example, an adverse effect one can get from chemotherapy is mucositis, mouth ulcers in plain English. These vary in severity from annoying, through painful, to fatal. Interestingly one of the best preventative treatments is a mouth full of unflavoured ice during the chemo - the theory is that it restricts blood supply and so less of the cytotoxin is delivered there. I can understand someone wanting to avoid conventional cancer treatments. Whether his decision was an entirely rational one is open for debate, but I don't think it was automatically irrational.

    There was an NPR story on Carter's treatment - boosting the immunity system to take out the cancer cells. Won't work for all types of cancer, but this is the first significant development of a cure which isn't of the basic 3: cutting it out, burning it out, poisoning it.
