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.

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.

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.

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

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. . .

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.

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.

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! :-)

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.

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.

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.

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
