The New Yorker’s Steve Jobs Cover — Brilliant

The New Yorker got it right. Their latest cover features Steve Jobs and St. Peter, who is using an iPad to check him into to heaven’s gate. There is outrage about the cover, which has been labeled disrespectful because Jobs was Buddhist. The naysayers are missing the point. It doesn’t matter what your God is — it matters that whoever or whatever he is, he’s using an iPad. If Jobs were alive, I imagine he’d like it. If someone made a complimentary Jesus-Christ-related joke about me, I’d be fine with it — even though I’m Jewish. Funny is funny.
