    MN firm has a run on Steve Jobs' black mock turtlenecks - Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal

    The Minnesota company that made Steve Jobs' iconic black mock turtleneck has seen a dramatic sales increase since news broke that the former Apple Inc. CEO died.

    Even at the price of $175, St. Croix Collections has seen sales of the familiar turtleneck double overnight, and some stores have run out of them.

    that so-called giving away their wealth isnt really giving away their wealth

    it's not like they're giving away cash or transferring money to other people's bank accounts

    Gates' charity money is being managed by his foundation (The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)

    Warren Buffett's charity money is also in Gates' foundation (coz Buffett trusts Gates)

    they really havent given away their money. They still have full control of it

    im not a lawyer but i think when you give money to a foundation (even if it's a private foundation like yung kay Gates) the money belongs to the foundation na

    Bill & Melinda Gates and Buffett are trustees of the foundation. they control the money

    So kung si jobs pumayag sa proposal ni gates at pumayag mag bigay ng pera sa foundation, di na niya kontrolado yun,kontrolado na ni gates yung amount ng pera na yun? Tama ba?

    yes. once Jobs' money is in the foundation it is no longer his money

    decision-makers ang mag-asawang Gates kung saan gagastusin ang pera ng foundation
