I am proud of how couragous Steve Jobs was with his diagnosis and treatment. My father also died of pancreatic cancer at age 51. It is a cruel disease and takes a strong person to continue after they are diagnoised. I can only imagine what he and his family went through from my own accounts. I hope that through his creativity and amazement that this will inspire research in the area of pancreatic cancer to help others.

He changed the world as we know it. Will probably take another 50 years for someone of his caliber and genius.

hmmmmm...I can't help but think...did he wait until he could re really rest in peace....the man has made the most amazing steps forward in our history, was prolly relieved too let his soul go..knowing the Flintstones's version of are modern day woman, has announced she won't b running for President!
Imagine...how such a brilliant man who tried to make mankind smarter quivered at the very thought of such illogical thinking on part of Americans...I mean..it was a Presidential candidate who wanted her...wtf? poor guy..thankgod for technology..or else the USA would b a 3rd world country by now...oh wait....they r't as in debt!
suxs the smart ones can't lead the country! Obama is best chance...I pray for him all the time..what a mess he walked into!
...oh well..we can be thamkful for the 1% genious from Mr.Jobs...cause the other 99%..well...goes down from there...and look at the population of usa
sad state of affairs
