This is a very sad day, especially for his family and friends. Obviously I never met the man but I feel like I knew him through his presentations. He was a truly innovative man.

Its obvious to me and reinforced by seeing these posts that Steve lives on.. Its apparent that his essence continues to live in many of us today and has changed the world forever. Both directly, and indirectly through this actions and vision.. I am hopeful that this is not the end, but just the beginning of great ideas to come from all of us who Steve has influenced. He is part of us.

What a incredibly sad day. It really doesn't matter if you own a PC or a Mac Steve Jobs touched your life in the way your computer works and looks. His kind of vision just doesn't come along everyday. Without him I'm afraid the tech world will be a different place. Apple will go on. He saved Apple and changed the way computers, phones, and portable information devices look and act. You might say he brought them all into the 21rst century.

RIP Mr. Jobs and we all salute you.

A very sad day. My condolences to his family. He will be missed.

Condolences from Page as well this day...

"I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts and Google's are with his family and the whole Apple family."- Larry Page

It seems so wrong that cancer can take so many people who are in their absolute prime achieving so much both personally and for the greater good.

The day we rid ourself of this horrible disease can not come soon enough. Today is a great day to make a donation to cancer research or treatment institution.

Thank you for the innovation, creativity, and the strength to always follow your vision. You have changed the lives of so many people, mine especially. You worked tirelessly right up to the end - now you get to rest. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Sad to hear this day arrive. We loved ya Steve - thanks for everything and see ya in the afterlife!

Thanks for your visions and seeing them through in the manifestation of great products with a never-ending pursuit of "even better" and well interconnected.

Steve Jobs was one of the more interesting people of our time who I wanted to meet, along with Tim Leary and Ron Paul (who I've met). Oh well, 1 of 3 is better than none...

Rest In Peace Steve. We will miss your introspection and signature keynotes. You have been an inspiration to me.


For all those interested in how to fight cancer -- before you get it -- check out the Health Freedom Expo, which moves around the country -- I have learned LOTS at this event over the years. Many alternative treatments and insights -- some useful some noise, but a learning experience for certain.

What made Steve Jobs great is not his marketing skills nor his legendary temper. What made him great and a legend are these qualities, he understood failure more than others and he understood success more than anyone. He knew when to say no and he knew when to say stop and he knew when to say wait and be patient. He was willing to delay products that does not meet his standards or in some cases, cease production of products that were market failures due to various reasons. But above all, his brilliance, his unceasing passion is all centered on one thing, simplicity for the common user. Look at the iMac, the iPod, iPhone and iPad and then compare the competition. The competition have much better specs, more software and thousands of choices that will meet the demands of the beginner and the hard core tech geek. But Apple under his leadership chose another way and it is best describe like "we will sell you products we think you will need and they will have world class design and a UI that will worked with you rather than against you. We will not sell you the specs of our products, we will sell you what you can do using Macs, iPhone, iPod and iPad after opening the box.

He is one the Best and his leadership will be missed, not only by Apple, but every Tech company in the planet . Good job, Steve Jobs, you had done well and may God bless your souls and bring comfort and peace to your family.

I just shed a tear.

I feel like a close relative just passed away. It's such a poignant sense of loss.

Thank you, Steve Jobs, for dreaming big and for bringing those dreams to life.

Whatever Apple do next, whatever is their next big thing, it'll probably never seem quite as big as when Steve did the unveiling—presenting their latest creation to us all in his own unique and strangely magical way.

I feel like I have lost a lifelong friend; I can't imagine how his family must be feeling. My love to them all.

Some magic just left the building.

Catch you around, Steve.

I think we sometimes forget just how extraordinary this little moment of time in history during which we live our lives is. For all the thousands of years prior to this time there were no computers for people to use. They will surely be with humanity in one form or another for all the generations to come. Yet it was during these few decades in which we lived that ordinary folks could first acquire and use computers and their extraordinary civilization-changing power. Apple didn't invent the computer and there were many people who made inestimably important contributions to the technology, but it was Jobs and Wozniak who did form the company that would put the first truly viable "home computer" on the market. Amazing.

Thats sad, he worked almost right to the end.

I'll never forget my first computer, a Mac plus and I'll never forget what Apple has brought to my life.

Thanks Steve Jobs.

RIP

Very sad indeed. All the money in the world couldn't save him. Very tragic.

RIP Steve Jobs

No... I knew this day would come, but it still hit me like a punch in the gut.

Yes, I have cried for for Kennedy, MLK, and Lennon. And now Jobs. And I can't stop crying. What a loss.

As a kid, I had a TI-99/4A console that my dad gave me when I'd asked for an Apple II. My, that sucked. I slapped a rainbow Apple sticker on it and wished.

I'm pleased that SJ is so well remembered.

I'm comforted that, measured in the unit of a lifetime, we're all here for the same duration.

Rest in peace.
