A true success story, he never asked the Govt for anything, never asked the tax payers to bail him out back when the business was suffering, never asked tax payers to fund his projects.
He made it the American way with hard work, drive, ambition and ingenuity and contributed much to the world as a result.
RIP peace Steve Jobs, you left this world a better place.

I am really sad about his death. I hope Apple holds to his values.

I also think Steve Jobs died last week, due to the leaked news reporter on Twitter, but they did not tell the world till today, because its the day after the iPhone 4s release. It was probably his own last request to protect the iPhone 4s announcement from being a sad one. RIP Steve Jobs, you changed the world.

So, where does this leave Apple in the future? He was the big engine behind Apples resurgence.

"He Died 'Peacefully'" After suffering his azz off since announcing he had pancreatic cancer in 2006. I cringe when people say "died peacefully"..they take into account the suffering up to that moment of death in their sleep. I know I have MS for 9 years and it's so painful some days you pray for death and cancer's 10 times worse. RIP, he changed the world in ways very few before him have. The modern day DiVinci many have said..... exactly.

I have never really liked him. First he stole from IBM with Bill Gates and he was just like he was so perfect people were buying his products just to buy them.
