The New York Times published a moving eulogy to Steve Jobs, written by his sister Mona Simpson, on Sunday. It's a beautiful piece of writing, and as several of you pointed out, it strikes an emotional chord very similar to one we explored in a short about Hamlet's last words. Here's a link to the eulogy, and here's an mp3 of The Four Groans.

I thought of this show the moment I read his last words too. I got chills and recalled the in depth discussion of the 4 groans. It deepend the meaning of Job's last words for me, by much.

When I heard of Mr. Jobs' last words, Shakespeare's Hamlet was the first thing I thought of. Very curious and interesting. Both men had great minds.
