So sad. Steve's innovative Apple Macintosh and first iphone changed my daughter's life. She has a disability and those 2 devices really made her life much more tolerable.
THANK YOU STEVE. You will be missed.

RIP Mr. Jobs. I don't own any Apple products but I will say that he truly was the Henry Ford of his generation and modern times. He certainly kept the Windows World on their toes.

My sincere condolences go out to his friends and loved ones. He may not have been the most well loved entrepreneur but he understood the consumer electronics marketplace very well. His company stayed in the game much longer than many of the heavyweights that were dominating the information technology field when Apple first opened their doors. This, in itself, speaks volumes. His successful foray into the film industry via Pixar is very admirable. He has certainly left a lasting legacy on the modern world and will not be soon forgotten. May you rest in peace Steve Jobs. America can certainly use at least 100 more successful entrepreneurs of your caliber. Ars Longa, Vita Brevis!!!

I'm not shocked, given how sick he was, but it's still a bummer for his family, mostly because he wasn't that old at all.
