Out of respect I ask the android people to show proper respect for Steve Jobs. He was a human being and he has a family and friends. We joust all day about this phone vs that phone but this is a sad day for technology. Cancer is a terrible disease and its not a joke.
Rest in Peace Steve.
We will miss you.

I hear you, but please don't automatically label these disrespectful posters as Android people. None of that even matters! An asshole is an asshole no matter what kind of phone he/she uses.

How can you NOT respect a man who contributed to his family and the industry he loves nearly to the moment he passed?

RIP big guy. You will be remembered for being a true innovator. The mobile platform is better off because of you. And I'm sure your memory will live forever. God bless him and his family and friends.

RIP Steve Jobs. Thank you for everything you have done for Computers, Touch Pads, and in my opinion the phone industry. Although I am a Microsoft Windows Phone user, because of you these companies were forced to make innovative new phones in order to keep up with you. You ideas made phone companies step up their game. Smartphones would never be where they are without you. I tip my hat to you sir and hope the best for you on your next Journey.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, Android, or WP7... You owe this man a debt of gratitude! If you own an Apple TV, a Roku box, Google TV, a Galaxy Tab, an MP3 player or an iTunes account... You owe this man a debt of gratitude! He has influenced our world in way most people don't realize or even think about. Steve Jobs has changed just about every facet of our lives in one way or another, either it's music, TV, computers cell phones, and even the cartoons your kids love to watch (Anything by Pixar), this man has influenced one way or another.
So whether you loath him or love him, he has done more in his short life time than most of us ever dream of doing. If you don't want to pay your debt of gratitude, that's fine. No one can force you. But at the very least show him the respect he deserves for all that he done an keep your tasteless jokes to yourselves. Today is not the day!
RIP Steve Jobs!

Rip in peace sad day. Glad most people posting are showing some respect. The amount of anti Apple hate this week has been ridiculous.
137. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
As much as I agree that this should be a hate free zone, you could have refrained from knocking on the general anti Apple posts this week.

90. beatlesfan (Posts: 150; Member since: 03 Mar 2011)
Its like he fought through it just to see the announcement yesterday. He was that dedicated to Apple.
111. yes you are one BigDikk (unregistered)
what is wrong with you??!! this isn't anything about phones or OSes or companies. please be mature and put them all behind, there's always another time for that..
please show some respect for this man. without him you probably wouldn't even see the Nexus Prime or its features in this lifetime.
92. T12RYK (Posts: 98; Member since: 10 Jun 2011)
He lives on through all of Apples products RIP

The announcement of the Iphone 4s killed Steve Jobs.... You killed Steve Jobs you Bastard!!!!!!!
197. DeviantDroid (Posts: 51; Member since: 28 Apr 2011)
Was not meant in offence of Steve Jobs he was a wonderful man. I just believe that had he still been able to carry on as CEO he could have made the IPhone 4s show better. So all you ruffians calm your self for I do praise the man for his advancing of the mobile industry!

Wow. Hate apple. Did not like jobs or his liberal company. So i will not make a fake i care comment. Long live android!! Now if apple company will just rot away so free competition will resume in the tech world. No more lawsuits in the way.

no he isn't an Idiot but he's obviously an Imbecile. . .
122. bolaG (Posts: 468; Member since: 15 Aug 2011)

so u and steve jobs were tight then? u hang out played tennis on tuesdays?
133. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Steve had some pretty negative character flaws, but he was far from evil. Therefore there is no call to celebrate his death.
136. jacko (unregistered)
Hate apple. Did not like jobs as well but his a human just like you and me
163. Zoenphlux (Posts: 45; Member since: 05 Sep 2011)
I am not a fan boy, but if it wasn't for steve jobs you wouldn't have android you unlearned idiot. The iphone started what we know as the smartphone world today. Android came after iphone. Learn your place. Just because you dont like apple doesn't mean Steve doesn't deserve respect. He paved the way for computers and a lot of tech we have today. Read some facts and learn to respect people who have made your life better.

RIP steve, didn't know it would actually happen so soon. You gon be missed ibro

If you don't have anything nice to say, then please refrain from commenting at all. Death is a serious subject, no matter who it is

Its sad that Steve can't hold on a little longer to see iPhone 5 unleashing..He's one phenomenal figure of the cenutry..
109. xBreWCiTy (Posts: 4; Member since: 30 Sep 2011)
WOW! This is nuts! I did not agree with his legal mindset at all. But the man was a pioneer of this generation. The things he was able to do with apple was mindblowing. What I'm interested in seeing is where apple will be in the future now that their franchise juggernaut C.O.O is passed on. That previous statement, I meant every word of it. He was an absolute genius at what he did. Even Eric Schmidt(CEO of google) has said similiar words to those about steve. I will miss steve for his visionary work, and I know apple will too. Because honestly the heart, soul, and brilliance of apple is now passed on. I say that with the upmost respect.

Wow is this for real if it is RIP he had pushed tech further and faster than most people and really stirred compition in the industry love him or hate him he will be missed

You were a very well respected inventor. You were not only brilliant technology wise but you were a very well speaker who could easily sell a product. You will be deeply missed. RIP

Very very sad.
Thanks for all you gave to the world.
Thanks for the apple2 and macintosh that made the most funny moments of my student's life.

I think Apple should do something where they take proceeds from every Apple product sold and donate it to cancer research in honor of Steve.
130. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Maybe that's what they've been saving up all of their ludicrously high amount of wealth for. Executive order from Jobs that it be used to try to cure cancer maybe?
