  1. I suppose if even Brazil would have a road named after Steve Jobs, it would be ironic if the new Apple Campus that is being built at Cupertino does not have something that is named in his honor! Perhaps a Steve P. Jobs Building would be apt.

  2. @Chaz, it’s the country that imposed the tariffs and the city that named the street. This is confusing because the title is incorrect. “Brazil City Names Steve Jobs Avenue” should read “Brazilian City Names Steve Jobs Avenue. There’s an Oklahoma City, a Kansas City, and a Mexico City, but no Brazil City.

    Bloggers and newspaper reporters are prohibited from using adjectives when writing in the England language.

  3. Time to move on. He’s dead. He’ll be remembered without streets in a foreign country named after him. Steve Jobs would simply say “that’s enough,quit it,you’re acting like children,move on”. He’d be right. Move on! Get on with your lives. Do something positive instead of gushing all the time. Quit it!
