Wow this is depressing. So that was the reason he stepped down as CEO.

Through his efforts, he actually has had a significant influence on parts of my life. My Dad worked at apple, our first computer was an apple II that I remember playing my first computer game on, David's midnight magic, a pinball game, on at age 2 (apparently a computer was a higher priority than a car at the time). Later I made sprites on a mac classic and tried to make my first games in hypercard. I spent a lot of time working with macs and have taught people how to use them. Then there's how much he helped get Pixar off the ground.

The man left quite a legacy.

Whatever one might have in mind regarding Apple, he as a visionary man will leave a big hole.

I was working with macs, was teaching the use of macs, had a mac myself for more than 10 years and saw Steve Jobs doing so many interesting things. Todays MacOS X wouldn't exist, if he did not found neXt.

And it is too young to die, no matter if your name is Steve Jobs or any other. 56 just is too young.

Someone dying at such an early age is pretty sad, but still News channels calling him Thomas Edison of 21st century is a bit too much.


Also it's pretty funny that he died on the day on which a $50 tablet was launched. abhilash28632011-10-06 17:15:06

LOL Brilliant!

Sorry to sound harsh, but the guy was not as big of a genius as he is being made out to be. Invented the "ipod"? No. Invented fancy ways to sell crappily supported (but well made) products to every single person alive? Yes.

This makes him a good salesman... not an inventor or a visionary.

Sorry Steveo, but you weren't as great as you'd hoped... but still made a big impact on the way things are today. Good luck, old chap.
