Every once in a while a revolutionary 'product' comes along that changes everything.

Steve, this is you. RIP

I can't believe I'm writing these words ....

I don't believe in Heaven, but I hope there is one for people like Steve.

Rest peacefully, Mr. Jobs ....

I got my first Apple computer in February 1993. It was a Macintosh IIvi. It had a 16 MHz processor and 4 MB of RAM. Ever since, I have had at least one Apple device in my life because my life was always improved in some way through owning one. Steve's company and products improved a lot of lives and he will be very deeply missed.

Thank you, Steve Jobs, for all that you gave the world.

We all think and feel the same sadness, we all know his accomplishments, but although I never met him I am truly saddened by this news. Feels like I lost a favorite uncle. In some small way maybe it would make him smile that I first read this on my iPhone 3GS.

I live in Silicon Valley and it rained today and raining tonight. Silicon Valley cries.

I feel very happy that I've actually been on Apple's campus in the past and ate lunch in their cafeteria with someone who worked there.

For all the memories and pushing us past flip-phones, DOS, and manila colored computers (and a lot more), thank you Mr. Jobs. Respect!

What's interesting is that until now I'd only thought of my attitude towards Steve as admiration and appreciation for what he'd accomplished.

But I feel kind of sad, like I feel like I personally lost something. It's interesting how people can touch and affect those the've never met.

Take care, Steve. See you in the next.

But most of all, thank you Laurene, Reed, Erin and Eve for sharing your husband/father with the world. As you continue this journey called life, know that everywhere you look you will be able to observe the difference your husband and father made in this world.

We all mourn the loss of our great innovator but our thoughts are with you who have lost so much more. God bless you.

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.......

.....No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Select but very true words from Mr. Jobs.

You were one of my greatest inspirations, Steve. Will miss you a lot.

My deepest condolences to your family, Apple team and all the Apple fans around the world.

Rest in Peace

I am glad he got to see one more of his dreams, this one from 1987, be born into reality.

A true innovator and hero that will be greatly missed but not forgotten

He was a visionary and his legacy will continue to change the world for the better for years to come.

Deepest condolences to the family.

Wasn't Jonthan Ive's the so called designer and how things looked, whereas Steve priced things so that for a little more $$$ you get what you really want, so you go in wanting to spend $999 and spend $2000.


But seriously REST IN PEACE, and he will, it is a very sad day, and now, its going to suck not seeing him on stage, wow, that was fast. Man oh Man, fast.

Such a treat to have lived in your time.
Hopefully we can all meet to thank you personally in an afterlife.
Condolences to the family and to Apple.
Keep the faith. Long live Steve Jobs!

I stand corrected - Steve would want you to do your best! We're all very sad but inspired as well by a life well lived. \

OSX Lion, how appropriate that the Lion was saved for now. Steve Jobs, the truly regal Lion of Apple. Long may his spirit live. Thank you for everything.

Steve was instrumental in shaping the future we all live in today. Sadly, this is his last stop on that journey. We will continue on without him.

I think this rememberance written by Walt Mossberg is a fitting eulogy:

Glad I still have the video for his last public appearance at the Apple WWDC 2011 Keynote Address for iOS5 and iCloud. I will save it forever.

He was one of my few inspirations. Respect always.

Steve knew how to make it rain on the competition.
I believe Tim Cook will take Apple to the next realm though.
It has only just begun!
RIP Steve!

Reincarnate, Steven P. Jobs, and lead another revolution of Human-Technology coexistence.

Probably just a crazy dream of mine, but it would almost not surprise me if it turned out that a "One More Thing" finale was planned for yesterday's Apple eventin classic Steve style. The pic of the empty 'reserved' chair at the front of the auditorium is very telling.

It's nearly 5:30 am in the UK and I haven't slept a wink.

Still can't quite believe Steve is gone.
post #279 of 365
Here's to the crazy ones - the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers; the round pegs in the square holes - the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them, because they change things; they push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius... because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world... are the ones who do.

in piam memoriam, Steve.

R.I.P. Steve Jobs. You will be missed.
