I don't quite agree with the "post-PC era in which we're already living now" statement right there. Other than that, it's a great article. Kudos for the man who changed the world. RIP Steve.

Steve touched the life of so many people.... He is up there with the likes of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and the Wright brothers. What a loss. RIP

Not a big fan of apple or the i anything but Steve was a great business man and i must say that i am glad he is gone on. (keep reading) he has been fighting a loosing battle for a longtime and i have watched friends and family dieing it is a long and painful way to go. may God bless him and his loved ones, unfortunately the i will live on so i guess we are stuck with that.

I will remember Steve for the true visionary that he was and his accomplishments that led the revolution in both smart phone and PC worlds! He was a charismatic man who was a pleasure to watch on the stage.
My thoughts and praiers go out to his family and friends.

Since he patented the shape of mobile devices, Apple will continue his legacy to take down any companies that is a major competitor to Apple.

R.I.P. Steve Jobs, I know I don't like Apple's business practices, but the man was a genius. His idea's shaped the world we live in right now. Mobile is different because of him, granted tech always moves toward mobile, but he helped push ideas that made mobile a house hold name. Smartphones have been around forever, but he made them mainstream, not a nitch market or for just business. The man gave a lot to this world & I RESPECT him to the fullest.

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.

17. Really? (unregistered)
What is wrong with you guys? Since when is developing and marketing "shiny toys" that revolutionize the way humans go through their daily routines and help promote competition by bringing out Android and other operating systems NOT great? He essentially started the smart phone war when he introduced the iphone. Whoever thinks different is an arogant f tard who clearly is biased towards one opinion and cannot show compassion / credit where credit is due and thats why you all will only make minimum wage instead of doing great things yourself.
He wS no Apollo, but what he did for the technical world is femarkable.
20. Really????????? (unregistered)
yes im sad hes dead but remove your blinders because im pretty sure RIM, Nokia, and Palm would have something to say about steve jobs creating a "smartphone war"...

Steve Jobs was a man that I never personally knew and sadly, I will never meet. I have trouble explaining the emotional impact of his death on me personally. I'm just one of millions of over obsessed Apple fanboys, but he really did mean something to me. I'm young and he has really been a great role model for me, despite whatever personal problems he had. How many people can get fired from a company they started and then still have it in them to come back and make it the company it is today. He isn't my role model because he is rich or influential, but because he could create these products that have had such a huge impact and ones that people can really appreciate.
He has also been a major part of the relationship between my father and I. Both of us are tech geeks and when I'm away from him for periods of time (with my mom) we always make sure to send each other articles (usually from Engadget) about the latest gadgets or Apple products. He used to be a hardcore PC user, stating that "Macs are for kids and people who can't use computers." That all changed when I brought the first Apple product into our house, the iPod. Today, he has an iPod, an iPad, a Macbook Air, and wears an Apple shirt to work every day. The day that Steve Jobs resigned, we sat together reader his letter in silence. We couldn't find any words for it...we couldn't explain why it was such a big deal to us, but it was. Last night, my dad walked into my room looking very solemn and serious. I could tell something was wrong immediately and all he said to me before he walked away were three words, "Jobs is dead." He frowned and looked right at me and I began to cry. That's all he needed to say, we knew what it meant for us, Apple, and for the world. His death is a huge loss for everyone, whether they know it or not, whether they care or not.
I'm not sure why I felt compelled to write this, but the best thing I can think of is that his death is something that we all share in common, something personal. Call me stupid or over emotional or a fanboy all you want. This isn't about me, it's about Jobs. I want to respect him and I ask that you respect him too. My condolences to Steve's family and friends, and I wish the best Tim Cook and Apple in the coming years.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!?!? people get so caught up with these products and theyre emotions get crossed. This is exactly what these secret societies want. they want you to be looking the other way while they plot on takin over everything, what do we do whenever we purchase something apple???? not only do we make them more powerful but we spend less time with what we really need which is not ipads, ipods, iphones, mackbooks, you get more far and far from knowing your inner you, not what you think but what you can be capaple of, i bet you anything steve jobs never had the time to play w- his ipad why¡????? its ot that he didnt need it he basically used it as a tool to get YOUR MONEY, YOUR ENERGY AND YOUR TIME.

As this Steve Jobs pass away, it's the time for the Google Android to be no one. Hope there is no other mobile company sue other mobile company after his gone. Come on Android boys don't be so sympetatic for this guy. I know he has brought a world technology for mobile but look what he done to Android example Samsung Galaxy Tab???????? He just one to create a Monopoly on Mobile device, MP3 and MP4 player. It's their (Apple) revenge since 2004 after a lot of mobile cell phone that has MP3 player where most of them can beat the Ipod., then Apple try to find the solutions by creating the Smart Phone to beat ( to make a revenge) all the device by thinking for a few years for finding solutions (IOS). Thank Google just need less than Apple to find the Android OS. So it's time for Android to over take Apple.

I did have Apple products in the past, and i loved them. The only product i did not see a point is the Iphone, after the aperance of Android on the market. That is not important!!! Stop the fight for a moment, between Apple and Samsung. Stop and look around, Probably the sharpest mind in the tech world has just left us, a person to who we owe a lot of respect for what he did, what he has shown us over the years. I use a Samsung phone with android, but that does not make me blind, i can see what a gread men was Steve Jobs. I had, i have and i will probably always admire the kind of man that he was. I still can't quite belive that he is gone, i want to see him up on that stage and i want him to show us the Iphone 5. As a close friend of mine said after the last Apple presentation of the Iphone 4S, Without Steve Jobs, Apple are just changeing letters and not numbers (as a hint to the S after the 4). You will be missed Steve Jobs, by everyone!!! I can only hope that when it will be my time, i will have the privilege of seeing him again.

A lot of respect from me!!! I just wish condolences to his family and close friends, for they have lost a big part of their world, as we all do when faced with tragic loss of a loved one.

Ha ha ha ...He be remembered coz he is not only a tech brilliant but he is an American. How if he is a tech genius and he is a Chinese. I don't thin he will be remembered. I'm sad not coz Steve Jobs death but I'm sad that he is not live to see the Asian ( Chinese and Indian ) genius will beat him. There a lot Asian people that more brilliant than he is but some of them don't have an oppurtunity or just been a worker to Apple or Android.

Come on guys !!! Please stop talking great about Jobs. He is one other business man, making profits. He did not do anything great for the world or the people.
I sympathise for his dead. But it happens to every human. What is he special about. Dont paint a wrong picture about Jobs.
Whatever I heard and read about him, he is not a lovable person. PERIOD.
43. Gary D (unregistered)
Get it through your heads people Steve Jobs never invented anything. He simply took existing devices and inventions made them flashy and new again only to resell them at a higher margin, of course assembled by underpaid workers in China. All he did was Market devices to the masses, sure he may have a hand in the original macs but nothing more after that. His genius is creating the zombies we call Apple Fanboys, yet so vicious and very much in denial. They simply deny the fact that they comment aggressively to other fans such as Androids. Steve Jobs will never ever be in the same league as Ford, Edison, Einstein etc. simply because he didn't create or invent anything that this world haven't seen before. Again what he has created is a new look to existing devices and marketed them as being magical, nothing more nothing less.

Its obvious that people have different opinion for a person and his work - after all its based on their perception.
The thing is - fact remains : After each release of Any new Product from Apple - Almost every company has tried to copy it.
Remember, technology is not everything the presentation is also very important.
Gold is presented much beautifully by Goldsmith.
Design creativity is essential - Steve Jobs Did it very nicely Better then anyone else - In this amazingly huge competitive market - That also without any compromise.
He was a genius for sure.
He is a milestone in history of world - Doesn't matter what anybody says.
May the creativity flourish as 'Steve Jobs' dreamed of.
