Quick, someone explain what branding and a corporate icon is to John Gruber, he doesn't seem to know....

Applying Gruber logic to his own blog he is pretty dumb, I mean he isn't on fire (I assume), and his blog wasn't founded by an ACTUAL fireball.

UPDATE: John Gruber just broke the story: The Burger King mascot, "The King" is not actually from royal blood. In the mean time we are all waiting for the Apple board to tell us that Steve Jobs is sick...like they promised...

Dude, stick to blogging about security. Your jokes/analogies are not making any sense.

Apparently Enderle does not understand the difference between a fictional persona and a real person.
I refuse to believe that you would fall for that David. :)

You of course are right. Although Enderle could have used as an example Walt Disney after he died and used that as somewhat of a comparison, but he's on the right track.

While I'm sure that Apple will continue to operate as a going concern after the "great one" leaves, it will be a tough time.

Many Apple heads praise Jobs like he is the Messiah, but now that his loss from the company is becoming more of a certainty, these same people seem to think that he means nothing to the company.
