Yeah, growing Apple from a niche "artsy" market to a "super-niche artsy" market as well as being the dominant Name in the cell-phone and digital "gadget" industry...

Quite an accomplished life for one guy.

The crazy thing is that he was only 56 -- several years younger than I am!

This is why I am adamant in my desire to do that which feeds my soul as well as that which pads my bottom line.

Life is far too short and precious to be completely wrapped up in "things"

If anyone is near a TV, MSNBC is focused on the story

That is way too young to pass. I had a friend that had pancreatic cancer and it does take you quick. Whether you agreed with him or not he will forever be enshrined in the history books along with the others in the technology field that have made significant contributions to our current way of life.

I wonder if Apple if going to be able to maintain the culture that he brought in that was so successful. I've seen it with other companies that had a unique and successful culture and after the handing of the baton they went from a lose blue jeans and t-shirt sort of attitude to one of the stuffy three piece suits guys that just wrecked havoc on the company. He was, imo, the visionary and wouldn't take "it can't be done" for an answer. Let us hope that continues.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

The first Apple product I used was an Apple IIc in 3rd grade. I am thankful that he had the passion and knowlege to evolve one of the premier names in technology today. Thank you.

RIP - Steve Jobs

I'd like to say that may Steve Jobs rest in peace, and may his family know he will never be forgotten, his ideas and his vision have impacted the way we all use computers, cell phones, mp3 players and pretty much everything electronic, whether you use Apple products or not, you have to respect the mans vision and the sheer amount of things that he accomplished, He will be missed and his death is a hard blow to many, But he will never ever be forgotten by the millions of people his vision has impacted and affected.

Sad, but not unexpected. He was a very sick man ... for years -- much more than the public was lead on to believe. When he retired, I felt his time was short. RIP. May the LORD comfort his family.
