I was sure he'd at least live long enough to invent a new iDevice to download his consciousness into. Like the iRobot or something. Now we may never see such technology in our own lifetimes. v_v

In all seriousness though. Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs.

I feel like that in 100 years Apple will clone Steve Jobs.

Too bad to see him go...

If you look at MP-3 players and phones from 10 years back the devices are riddled with buttons that you need to press different numbers of times and in different combinations to get the result you want.
He changed that. Style and functionality.

Although I'm no Apple user or fan, his vision of design combined with functionality was and is inspiring.|

Rest in peace.

That pretty much sums up what I was going to say, with fewer words.

Not a fan of yours either.

RIP, Steve Jobs.

Love my ipod and saved a bundle with itunes since I don't have to buy an entire CD for one decent song. Even though I was a reluctant iphone user, now that I have one I don’t know how I lived without the damn thing. Oh and love my apple stock most of all.

Goodbye Mr. Jobs, you will be missed.

Say what you want about apple (well okay some of it may actually be true) but apple has been the innovator for several popular modern devices. While others can come out with their own variations and a few might even match or be better, that doesn't change that apple came up with it first.

I didn't like the direction apple took earlier this year because regarding their criticism of microsoft "releasing cheap p.o.s. products" it's now essentially eating crow soon to be followed with pot kettle black. Sign of the times I guess and this will change the tide of business for sure. Someone else will now be an innovator in his place. Mr. Jobs did good work for the most part as an innovator.

Also he's still a tad too young to die IMO. Middle aged, yes, but not old. Old to me is 65+.

Common misconception: Apple hasn't really come up with anything first, they were simply the first to market that particular product successfully.

MP3 players, touchscreen smart phones and tablets aren't Apple inventions, but they rose to popularity because of the company and their efforts.

This. He had a great mind, but nothing more. I won't miss him either.

Nevertheless, R.I.P.

RIP Steve.

While I agree that Apple didn't invent products like MP3 players, they did manage to make them a part of everyday life by making sure their brands of MP3 players were top notch in terms of quality. This is practically the only reason I own an iPod.

True, but what Apple did was the definition of innovation - "to renew or change". Apple may not have been the first to make all those things but they arguably made some of the most attractive and simplistic tech items.

RIP Steve Jobs. I'll always remember my first computer in the early 1980's: an Apple II with an amazing 48kb of RAM...and then a MacIntosh later on. Countless hours of fun.

Another common misconception: Apple is the only company to innovate.

Now if only these companies weren't so busy suing each other in some kind of stupid patent war and trying to prevent each other from selling their products and being anti-competitive.

Apple alone has managed to stop the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe and Australia... in Australia Apple's lawyers say that they fear the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will "seduce" people into buying a Tab instead of an iPad: http://www.theage.com.au/digital-lif...929-1kyl5.html

Apple doesn't want to compete with a similar product? Funny, I thought that's how capitalism worked.

Of course, I'm not some kind of Apple hater, I just hate it when I see such rampant asshattery going on where a company like this is able to get away with so much anti-competitive, monopolizing behaviour when a company like Microsoft is accused of it at every turn.


As innovative and great Apple was under Steve, it became a tyrant as well. I wish people could see that much.

Damn, too soon.

I don't think you all realize it, but most of us learned about Steve Jobs' death on a device HE made.

That shows what an impact he left on the world.

I doubt that, TV and non-mac based computers are still in the majority... and although Apple has the largest single market share of the smartphone market, they're still not the majority if you count everyone else as a unified competition to them.

But I understand what you were trying to say, a lot of people learned of the news using an idevice or mac product.

^^^R.I.P. Ralph Steinman. A man whose great achievements have helped the human race in no small manner:

I pray other like him will rise and continue his work.

Maybe it's just me but most "Ralph's" I have known have been helpful, generous, kind, active, and contributory. There is something to be said about names and personal traits.

At any rate, two brilliant people died 10-6-11. They will be missed.

^ My thoughts exactly and nothing but the truth. I'm sorry but one article I read said stuff about how he gave us all these awesome Pixar movies and gave us all this new technology and so forth... He did not create Pixar he just bought it, he did not write all those amazing stories. It is a huge discredit to the people who worked so hard on those projects. He did not single handedly re-invent modern day technology, he had a good marketing team, period.

He was a smart guy, a good orator and a shrewd businessman, period. May he RIP.

To me the old school Sony Walkman revolutionised portable music and is very understated IMO.
