Steve Jobs, A man who never heard the word "No",. He brought us alot of innovation in times when we needed it. You will be missed. Even his competition will say he was a great man.

I was like the only one in my house that was devastated to hear this news because I'm the only one who really keeps up with tech news and whatnot. But man, it's really sad to see such a great man who innovated the technology landscape pass away. This is such a great loss to the tech world and I just don't know what to say. Although I never bought an iPod/Phone/Pad or a Mac, I still looked up to him because he was a visionary who took a chance that paid off. RIP Steve Jobs, you will be missed.

I guess for once we can agree.
203. Phullofphil (Posts: 801; Member since: 10 Feb 2009)
I disagree their is different ways to grieve and hummer if it is in good taste is not disrespectful. Steve had a better life up till the end than anybody on this coment section. Be happy for him he lived a great life. He lived it to the fullest and I bet he would enjoy light humer. Every funerual I have been to that went by good always had light hummer by somebody to break up the sadness and sometimes make people think about the good times there was.

biophone, I know you are upset, but to cry really?
Shouldn’t you cry if say you parents died, or your grandparents, but Steve Jobs? He wouldn't have cried if you died. I know that you are upset, I am upset, but to cry seems a little too much. That is life WE all will die. It's the circle of life, some people die now & some people die later. biophone one day you will die. Let’s celebrate Steve Jobs life not cry about it!
257. biophone (Posts: 1956; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
its a tragedy he was so young. usually thats how i react to death. I will celebrate his life but didn't want to have to do that for a while.

That is good to know biophone, you are a good guy!

Sadly there are many Imbeciles that doesnt have both heart and mind who post here in PA. . . I'm more sad for them. . .
34. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Thanks for your ideas, thanks for everything you did, for the things you helped create and all the things you make change, a man like you exist rarely these days. R. I. P.

RIP Steve, you will be missed, king of innovators.

R.I.P. Steve Jobs.
Some of the bloggers in here may have hated you, but not even them can deny that you have pushed the mobile tech industry to where it's at right now. You and your works will be greatly missed.
My heart goes out to his family who meant so much to him, and has inspired him to do all the great things he did all these years.
I was going to skip iPhone4S. But in Steve's memory, and in keeping with his legacy, I will be getting it.
143. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
for most its not a hate against steve, its a hate against apple, but yes, regardless of the fanboy wars, apple did a lot for the industry and its in its current state because of apple's mega catalyst iPhone. Apple got there because of steve's vision and control, and that is something that is going to be forever missing. I dont like the company but I do admire what the man has accomplished.
39. henrickrw (Posts: 408; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
I´m a fighter against apple products but I´m real sorry about his lost...!!!!
40. Anti-Fanboy (Posts: 38; Member since: 28 Sep 2011)
There's a lot of things you can say about Steve, but what you cant say is that he wasnt smart. He arguably shaped what now is the mobile industry. Kudos to you steve, you were a great man and an inspiration. RIP
41. JcHnd (unregistered)
Well... sad news... that explains why he resigned... RIP
42. mudhi (unregistered)
RIP Steve. Even though i dont use iphone, I appreciate the fact that steve's ideas has pushed the industry to constantly improve their products. A great game changer has been taken away from us.

On a completely unemotional, realistic note, I wouldnt want to be an apple shareholder right now.
47. biophone (Posts: 1956; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Apple will still be guiding by steve teachings and continue to create great products I promise. The new iPhone represents this. I can only imagine what steve had in store for us. Makes you realize whats important in life.
65. pongkie (Posts: 538; Member since: 20 Aug 2011)
I don't think so, apple will always be on their game for a long long time
148. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
Apple is on shakey ground. Apple is so tied to Steve its not funny. They have a "how to think like steve" school at apple for the executives. Yes, they will survive. The i5 is probably getting ready for testing and the i6 is probably in some sort of proto form, but from there ... who knows. Companies normally have the next generation or 2 of product planned out or even created before the current generation hits the streets.
Anyways, my point is apple's future is not nearly as shiney as it was 2 days ago.
This really has been the worst week for apple between the i4s mess and Steve's death.
46. jkeskel (Posts: 52; Member since: 23 May 2009)
ok that joke was kinda funny but dude cant you wait a couple days. that was uncalled for. this site probably wouldnt be here if it wasnt for him. we may not even have computers, smart phones, or tablets. everything that is discussed on this site it because of him. i really never agreed with his style but the man was a GENUIS! RIP to the most interesting man of our time

I'm Surprise that some one so rich and young has die, he is some one that our kids will read about, he still had a lot of things to offer this world
265. XiphiasGladius (Posts: 813; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
Why be surprised? if your young and rich you aren't prone to death compared to the poor and old? Cancer can hit anybody, sadly it hit him. . .
56. biophone (Posts: 1956; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
f**k you a great human being died and you cheer about it. What kind of person are you. Steve couldn't give two f**ks about the f**king prime. Your an asshole and this comment will soon be moderated and you banned trust me.

To say he was a great human being is a far stretch from reality. He paid to have people moved off of the top of the organ transplant recipient list so he could be put at the top. He was a great businessman and created a Titan of a company, but you cannot equate that to being a great human being. He was ruthless in business and that made Apple huge. Ask Steve Woznyak how much Jobs told him their commission was for the Apple II sales pitch. It is sad to see another person die, but he is human, it eventually happens. He was sick. I feel for his family but it was inevitable. Pancreatic cancer has a high mortality rate. Transplant or not. For all the Apple nuts, rest assured, Jobs left a 5-year plan for development of product. Ask any Apple employees. Beyond that, good luck. I doubt anyone in that group of executives is going to have that Arrogance and cut-throat mindset to lead Apple into the future beyond that.

It feels like the entire world just became somber because of his passing...rest in peace, Steve Jobs. The world will never see another man quite as amazing as you...
51. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
I can't believe that I'm shedding tears. I love my idevices. And to hear that the man responsible for these devices, that have been my constant companions for several years, has passed on, makes me emotional. This is really sad.
212. Uzzelien (Posts: 131; Member since: 22 Feb 2011)
He didn't do them. That guy left last year.
241. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4833; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
Dude 530gemini, celebrate his life. Don't cry for him, you should cry if your parents died (God forbid) but Steve Jobs, he is just another man. He put his pants on like you & I do. He would not cry for you, so why cry for him? I understand you are upset, I am upset. The loss of life is sad but that is life for you. Don't be sad & just celebrate his life & learn from him. I don't think he wants anyone to mourn him. From all the interviews I have seen on Steve Jobs & between my Fathers personal relationship with him he seemed to love life & he was a happy go lucky kind of guy. So just celebrate his life, don’t be sad! :-)
244. snowgator (Posts: 3583; Member since: 19 Jan 2011)
I agree. Celebrate the life. He helped change the way the world communicates. An Amazing impact he had.

Rest In Peace Steve, through your innovation and confidence, you have set the standard for the tech industry on what now is the go to or comparison. Working in the cell industry over the last 5 years, the words "apple" and iPhone" have come up constantly. Like his product or not, he shaped an industry through hard work, and a never limited imagination.
54. TKFox007 (Posts: 303; Member since: 02 Nov 2010)
I'm surprised that he hasn't found a way to upload his mind into a computer. Yes it's sad to see such a visionary die, but we all know that he had the ego to do something like that so he could live forever.
206. Phullofphil (Posts: 801; Member since: 10 Feb 2009)
I think they should not allow unregistered people on this site to coment. If he is gona troll atliest show his face. I am replying to yours cause my ipad2 won't let me reply to unregistered people
171. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
dont be a jackass. a man is dead. like him or not, he was an important man to a lot of people, including everyone on the ANDROID camp, and everyone that likes smart phones. Without Apple shaking up the industry we wouldnt have a lot of the cool things that we enjoy today in the smartphone world. Pay your respects or shut the FI_ICK up so others can pay theirs and mourn.
209. Phullofphil (Posts: 801; Member since: 10 Feb 2009)
There would be no android without the iPhone. Just palm windows phone and blackberry. If there was android it would not be as good. There still might be just resistive toch screens also. I used to think for ever why do they not use the glass copasitive screens. Steve knew this and made it happen

RIP Steve, now its time to rest.
