I always liked his motto "Business is war".

He was a great man.

RIP, Jack

It is sad to see the end of an era. Both the 8-bit and TOS lines were truly special. While we may have more powerful computers today, I don't think they are as good as they would have been had Atari won the PC wars and had today's technology with Atari design philosophy and efficiency.

Finding this thread a bit late, my computer went down. Anyway, sad news. If not for Jack I would have some other hobby no doubt.

It is unusable!

No wonder when there is no writen close caption but google first need to make text from audio and only then to translate to english! Even only writen caption in german would greatly help!

Worked great for me. First turn on captions, then pick "English".
