Obviously I don't wish the man death

That would be harsh, but shutting up and fucking off wouldn't be unwelcome.

Lets hope that Rupert Murdoch updates his jawbone to the internet so the whole world can celebrate the instant the psychopath drops dead. Every heart murmur would become a cause for a celebratory drink.

Uncle Scrotes should share his jawbone information with the rest of us. Quite a lot of people can't wait for him to stop moving.

Happy

so will he make his health information public?

Like Twitter for medical matters perhaps?

"Blood pressure dropping. Think it's a stroke. Someone call an ambulance."

I had a Jawbone Up. In fact I've had 3 of them in that when broke Jawbone would replace it. They've done that twice. The third time it broke I asked for a refund as the product is obviously not fit for purpose. As it was outside the 60 day refund limit though they've refused to do so. So currently my third broken band sits in a drawer unused while still within warranty. I could replace it, but what would be the point?. It might last a month and break again. They'll keep replacing it until the warranty runs out, then tell me its not their problem.

Avoid like the plague..

This is the guy I think of...

... when I tell people that longevity or "immortality" advances in science and medicine would be a Really Bad Idea.

Never mind overpopulation and all that! The simple fact that it's people like this who would benefit, preventing planet Earth and the rest of us plebs from at least getting natural relief of their ilk after around 4 score years, is what would make it the most irresponsible invention ever made.
