Hey mate. Check out this article of the NYT about how the first iPhone was developed over the course of 2.5 years and about all the effort Apple and its employees had to put into that device. It really makes the reader aware of why all these copiers don't deserve one's money.

Computers, MP3 players, and smartphones didn't exist in the average household before Apple came around. Apple didn't invent any of them, but inventions don't become popular simply by existing. Apple knows how to take technology and make it right for mass appeal. They make something popular, other companies join in and competition drives price down and quality up.

"Computers, MP3 players, and smartphones didn't exist in the average household before Apple came around. "
It doesn't call "innovation" or "invention", or "revolutionizing" .
It calls - MARKETING.
They invented- NOTHING

Even though Apple wasn't the first to have touchscreen phones and tablets and those things aren't really popular in the early days of it, Steve Jobs really changed the ecosystem of both phones and tablets. Apple was revolutionary and I don't know what happened today.

Honestly he had a timely death -- very timely for the tech industry else he would have pissed on every one of them with all the Apple money to satisfy his ego. He is a role model for another troll -- Larry (Genghis Khan) Ellison of Oracle.

As a Christian and not a Apple, Google, Nokia, Samsung or Microsoft fan I respect all human life and I am sadden by a lost of life. I know Steve was not a Christian nor believed in Jesus Christ. I am not call to Judge but to only inform and move on. I am sorry that he is no longer here to be with is wife friends and child. I am never called to Judge a person that is up to God.

I can Judge a product (inanimate object) for myself. I loved the iPhone 4 and 4s I believed Steve was very influential in it's design and he was an excellent sales man. But today I am no longer a iPhone user because the current crop of iPhones do not suit my needs. For me the iPhone 5c and 5s are far behind compared to the Android offerings. Nonetheless Steve job was part of the dynamics of an industry and help change that industry to what it is today. We may not have like his methods or him as a individual ( I did not like Bill Gates method of MS ruling the desktop pcs ) but the fact that remains is he propel the industry forward faster then it would have moved if the OG iPhone was not introduce.

nobody mentioned Dennis richie?

now that's terrible, he died about a week after jobs, and he was one of the guys who made C (the programming language) and UNIX, now those changed the world

maybe because he didn't appear in many keynotes>>>

Dennis Ritchie? Kids here won't even know who was he so the writer will not get enough hits to article. Those who really revolutionized the computing world will never get respect on sties where getting hits is first target.

RIP Steve Jobs... you are the man!

This dude could sell snow to winter. lol he had a great presentation about himself.
Competition had to start from somewhere and you helped provoke it.

I own an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Mac mini to honor what you've accomplished with your company.

He's definitely missed. Apple has not been the same since.

On another note:
Good to see Android(Samsung) take things to the next level after Apple peaked popularity. We all come here everyday to share our opinions on how other OSs have surpassed the iPhone. The device is THAT great and will always be.

Steve Jobs leave the World a better place to live in, unlike some people there who knows nothing but to criticize and to hate... Makes them feel a better person when they insult and call names the people that made a change for the better. A bunch of useless souls. May God forgive you being arrogant and foolish.

He only knew how to hate and criticize everyone from Bill gates, Microsoft to Google. Probably your whole piece fits him better than anyone else. He only hates and insulted.

the one who thinks that Steve jobs and his team invented Capacitive touchscreen are so wrong. Capacitive Screen were invented by E.A.Johnson in 1965. Multi-touch technology began in 1982, when the University of Toronto developed a tablet that could read multiple points of contact. Bell Labs developed a touchscreen that could change images with more than one hand in 1984. Around the same time, Myron Krueger developed an optical system that tracks hand movements. This was the beginning for the gestures we've adapted to so easily today. So stop giving credit to steve jobs, he just brought technology to consumers. Steve Jobs was only good at selling same products for years.

A year later, the University of Toronto and Bill Buxton, a computer scientist and pioneer of human-computer interaction, innovated the multi-touch tablet using capacitive technology.

In the 1990s, computer sci
