    Thumbs up Congratulations to Steve Jobs
    Google has a fun little toy that makes sets. You type in a few things, and it uses web page content to find related items. For example, if you type in banana, apple, and pear, you'll get other fruits like strawberry, orange, and cherry.

    I have always considered Leonardo da Vinci to be one of the greatest minds (if not the greatest mind) ever. I felt that he, along with Benjamin Franklin and Isaac Newton, are people well known for being brilliant in a wide variety of fields. I wanted to see if there were any others that had a similar reputation.

    I typed those three names in that order into Google Sets, and here's what came out:

    leonardo da vinci
    benjamin franklin
    isaac newton
    archimedes
    charles babbage
    alan turing
    galileo galilei
    henry ford
    santos dumont
    marie curie
    ferdinand magellan
    cheops
    abraham lincoln
    gandhi
    st. thomas aquinas
    steve jobs
    al khawarizmi
    thomas alva edison
    johannes gensfleisch gutenberg
    buddhism
    adrian


    Those are some of the greatest names in history, and Steve Jobs is included in there. That list includes the person that invented the printing press (Gutenberg), the man that is often credited for laying the foundation of modern computing (Turing), the other guy that gets credit for inventing modern computing (Babbage), the person that built the Great Pyramid of Giza (Cheops), the American president that is most often voted the best president we've had (Lincoln) (source), the greatest theologian (St. Thomas Aquinas), and Archimedes - who did a bit of everything.

    Steve Jobs, you couldn't find yourself in greater company.

    I think he's been a buddhist for a long time, Also a Vegetarian, and I think he meditates also.
