I feel for the Jobs family. I know how the loss hurts them, and I know that pancreatic cancer is often quite painful. Steve is not suffering any more, and I figure he is in a much better place now than the rest of us are at the moment...
The pancreatic cancer took my grandmother on August 2nd, and then a few weeks later, I found out about the myeloma that I now have. I am the sixth in my family to get cancer, of any sort, in the last nine months... and yet, before 2011 we had no family history of it whatsoever. My grandmother and her sister (passed on September 30th) are the first two in my family to pass away from cancer. My aunt and uncle recently survived chemotherapy and surgery, and my cousin has survived her radiation treatments and surgery... I have had radiation treatments, and will probably transition to chemotherapy soon.
Steve is a great innovator, a great thinker and strategist, and it will be our loss to not have him with us here for a while. I have no doubt it will be an even greater loss for his family. I would hope that when it is our time to join him, we will remember and honor him for helping many of our generation to better communicate, better organize and plan, and be more productive in our endeavors. Thank you, Steve, and enjoy your rest from the pains and cares of mortal life...

I have always looked upon you as a leader, a critical thinker, one who sees not only the problems of this world - but the solutions as well. That made you different from everyone else. And that showed to a lot of people how the world looks like in your mind. I will never forget your legendary speech at Stanford in 2005. I have memorized almost all of it, in my heart. It is not the products or the company that you have built, Steve that continue to inspire me. It is your unique approach to things in life. And today - the day you choose to leave us for the sake of Heaven - and the day I was born, 25 years ago for today is my birthday, I feel that I have learned much from you over the short period of time I got to watch your speeches and keynotes.
One more thing
I hope you are reading this, Steve. Rest in peace. Yehi zichrecha baruch - May everyone who remembers you, be blessed.

Hey doesn't the Book of Revelation have a passage that talks about everyone in Heaven getting a "white stone" that allows them to communicate and see the past and future? Sounds like a white iPhone to me... LOL!

No Steve Jobs, No Apple, no ipod,no iphone,no iPad, no iMac,no macbook, no macbook pro or air, No nokia and sony erricson touch screen phones, no android lg, samsung, htc and other branded touch screen phones and tablets, no macs which digital artists and designers use, we would have been stuck with old technology in the 90's... No innovations... Nothing... Imagine what the world is today without his contributions... I wouldn't be typing this on my iPad if there's no steve jobs..

Apple will continue his legacy by harrassing other companies until the end of their time.

In the Salvation Army, it is not referred to as dying during ceremonies, but being Called to Glory. The man followed his heart's ambition and changed an industry. We all should look back on a life so accomplished. He always seemed to enjoy his time in both the limelight and the development of the products. I, too, will be praying for his family. God Bless, Mr. Jobs.

Steve Jobs his dead and people are insane. Newsflash: Steve Jobs was a ruthless businessman and a snob. He didn't do "great" things. He helped develop and market products that were shiny toys. Yes, its sad he died, but its also sad the THOUSANDS ON THOUSANDS of other people died yesterday all over the world. A lot of them died younger, with more tragedy, with bigger families, and with less money to PAY themselves up the transplant list. It's the equivalent of the guy who plays ronald mcdonald dying. This was not a politician or a selfless man, put away your tissues and move on. Your emotions on this are embarrassing to the human race.

Although I am not the biggest fan of everything Apple, the guy was a visionary.
Some have said that he is our generations Thomas Edison.
I mostly agree.
R.I.P. Mr. Jobs.

Not only bringing Apple to the world and it's amazing innovations to music players, phones and tablets, but also saving PIXAR when it was down in the dumps. Without Steve Jobs not only would we not have Apple, but we probably wouldn't have PIXAR's amazing innovation in 3D animation either.
Thank you for everything you've done in your life Mr. Jobs, Rest in Peace.
