French Designer Philippe Starck Reveals Revolutionary Product is Jobs' Family Yacht
Remember that French designer that claimed he was working on a “revolutionary” new Apple product, but it turned out he was lying? Well he wasn’t completely full of it, turns out Philippe Starck was working the Jobs family yacht.
“It’s not a project with Apple. It’s a private project that began with Steve Jobs and that has been taken over by his wife,” a spokeswoman for Starck said.
Still, Starck apparently met with Jobs once a month in Palo Alto, Calif. for seven straight years and is continuing the meetings with Jobs wife. Walter Isaacson mentions some details regarding the yacht in the biographer's book “Steve Jobs.” Jobs reportedly started work on the yacht after experiencing what he called his “best vacation” on a cruise from Italy to Turkey. Jobs redesigned the boat numerous times.
"I didn't think I would be alive when it got done. But, that made me so sad, and I decided that working on the design was fun to do, and maybe I have a shot at being alive when it's done," Jobs told Isaacson.
The design was “sleek and minimalist,” according to Isaacson who saw models and drawings that included a special glass designed by the “chief engineer of the Apple stores.”
"I know that it's possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat. But I have to keep going on it. If I don't, it's an admission that I'm about to die," Jobs said.

Starck doesn't just "kiss and tell" he tweets while he's banging you and throws in some "enhanced" instagrams to boot.

I would rather spend that money for charity and save starving children. Americans wants to have big and without tax.

This is not meant as a nasty attack, but do either of you even know anything of Steve Jobs' philanthropy?? He (his estate) has plenty of money to give millions, or even billions to charity and still build a bunch of these silly-awesome boats!
You sound like one of those conservatives that think every poor person should just die, and that charity is something you do only to avoid paying taxes. I'm neither liberal nor conservative; I don't subscribe to labels and I feel they are divisive and dangerous. It's not conservative or liberal, it's your individual views that matter and it's time we start voting that way! Vote with your own interests, not just down party lines. For example, I believe most Americans, including the upper-average middle class and above, don't pay his or her fair share of taxes (including myself); while at the same time, I'm against stronger gun control, and believe spending in our government is raging out of control. Just a few of my many views. Intelligent conversation is stimulating, and I'd love to debate this with you (civilly), if you'd like (& can stomach it! lol)...

I believe you should keep what you earn. Who's right is it to take your money and give it to someone who has not earned it?
Poor people do not contribute to society and therefore should not exist. Being born poor is a poor excuse, because you have plenty of time to get a job and other stuff and make it in America.

With that said, I can't agree more with you. We are in a similar tax bracket, and I paid about 27k last year in federal income tax alone, and I pay every year when filing my taxes as well, and that's even writing off expenses covered by my personal business when attending to business related events. It's robbery to be quite honest.
