Was very suprising news this morning. Didn't expect it so soon. Any which way we look at it the man has changed the digital age forever. He was nothing short of a genius.

He knew what many people wanted before they even knew.

RIP Steve Jobs.

And then there was Tim Russert, from Meet The Press,

And then there was Mark Haines, from CNBC, well-known and well-liked in the Financial realm...

It always, well, saddens and boggles the "life view" when people go at a young age...whether it be Michael Jackson "young", Steve Jobs "young", or Haines at 65, although he seemed much younger:)!

I think me meant Mick Jagger :-P

Not really a fan of Jobs overpriced gadgets, but I'm sorry me passed
away. He didn't seem to get a lot of time to stop and enjoy the millions
he made. Kind of defeats the purpose of making a furtune, if you
don't stop at some point in time and spend it for fun.

Funny story -- both Jobs and Bill Gates were exposed at the same time to the idea of an integrated graphical "windows" interface by Xerox, if I recall correctly, I imagine by examining the little copier windows.

But, Bill Gates shelved the memory while Steve Jobs ran with it -- the Apple windows system was born and Gates had to scramble to even begin catching up...

I think that what set Jobs apart was the creative vision and drive to create "new" stuff and put it out, and, in doing so, made Apple a "creative technology" leader -- the fact that everything from MS Windows to Android has jumped in to compete, and Apple tends to be relatively overpriced doesn't take away from the creative drive and leadership.

Uh..Xerox used to make computer systems, the first GUI and that was on the Xerox Alto
