Yea, I know it's Apple and stuff... I just really didn't see that one coming.

What is to become of Apple now?

Apple hater, eh?

I mean I don't like Apple much either... although I do have an iPod... and a MacBook... should have bought a Dell.

I really hate apples bs closed system policies, respect their innovation and ability to survive and thrive for so long, and feel for Jobs if its true he's resigning because he's getting ready to die.lucid2011-08-25 11:08:42

I feel that Steve Wozniak should have soley owned Apple, and employed Steve Jobs, rather than things pretty much going the other way. Steve was a salesman, but Woz was the product.

Still, I really hope Jobs doesn't die, he deserves his retirement years.Jayjay2011-08-25 15:29:29

YAY! Maybe now we can customize our products without having to hack the crap out of them first! :D

As much as I dislike Steve Jobs as the figurehead of Apple, the poor bugger doesn't deserve to die :/ I had a feeling this announcement was coming for awhile though since his health has been deteriorating for quite some time now...

Oh well, the turn of a new era... and the ability to change more than a wallpaper... maybe.

Well, I guess I'm sad to see the ol' guy fall off... well, most of his throne, anyway. Guy's still a literal Chairman of the Board, if I can remember correctly, so he can still guide the company somewhat.

What I think will be really interesting is how the big M will react to this. I ain't a genius when it comes to market policy, so whatever Microsoft does in the aftermath of this shocker will be a surprise to me.

Well, IF you're gonna die, give me my iOS 5 first, please!

But seriously now, he doesn't deserve to die. He did nice products
