Apple rivals, partners & press pay tribute to Steve Jobs

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
For the first time in at least 30 years, Time magazine stopped its presses when news of Steve Jobs's death broke. The publication's latest issue with Jobs on the cover will hit newsstands Friday, and will join numerous other tributes to the late Apple co-founder.

This week's Time cover features a portrait of Jobs, taken by Norman Seeff, in which he is holding the original Macintosh. It originally ran in a story in Rolling Stone in 1984.

The magazine's managing editor, Richard Stengle, made the decision to stop the presses just after his staff had finished work on the issue. An emergency editorial meeting was then held, and a new issue was created in just over three hours, an unprecedented turn of events for the nearly 90-year-old publication.

The magazine noted that in the process of redoing its entire issue, many of the employees worked on the very Apple devices that Jobs helped to invent. It will be the eighth time Jobs graces the cover of Time, the last coinciding with the launch of the iPad in 2010.

Bloomberg Businessweek also announced that it will have a special issue of its magazine devoted to Jobs on newsstands Friday. The 64-page, ad-free tribute issue will also be available digitally on Apple's iPad.

It will feature pieces by Steve Jurvetson, John Sculley, Sean Wisely and William Gibson. The cover of the magazine features Apple-like simplicity, with a black-and-white, up close photo of Jobs and his years of birth and death.



Both magazines will join many other tributes that have begun to take shape since Jobs passed away on Wednesday. Some of Apple's partners, and even some of the company's fiercest rivals, have showed their appreciation for the contributions Jobs made to the technology industry and the world.

The homepages of both Google and Amazon featured tributes to Jobs with links to Apple's website. Even Adobe, a company with which Jobs had very publicized differences, paid respects to Jobs on its website, displaying a photo of him with Adobe co-founders Chuck Geschke and John Warnock on its front page.

The news of Jobs' death dominated headlines across the Web and in newspapers on Wednesday and Thursday. It was such a major mainstream story that even the homepage of sports network ESPN featured two headlines to inform readers of Jobs's passing.

Below is a collection of Web tributes and other acknowledgements of Jobs in the wake of his death. The memorials are joined by numerous comments shared by contemporaries like Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt and Michael Dell, as well as U.S. President Barack Obama.

The outpouring of condolence has been overwhelming, almost tear jerking.

Despite the terrible news it's been wonderful reading all of the good tributes from friends, rivals and normal people alike. The amount of messages out there just goes to show how much of an inspiration and how brilliant the man was.

He deserves all of the praise and more.

It's a shame to see some of the bitching on forums and social networks but the good vastly outweighs the bad.

Unless I missed it, somewhat surprised Jeff Bezos issued no comment.
@shen, could not get through the whole video without crying; its message became that more poignant.

There's business. Then, there's life that we occasionally pause for.

Nice that it can be that way, at least every once in a while.

Come Monday, it'll be back to business........

Has anyone else noticed who is conspicuously missing from the rolls of those acknowledging Steve Job's passing? As near as I can there hasn't been a word, let a lone a tribute from Disney/Pixar, the other company that Steve Jobs saved/founded. Even if the Disney Corporation is too arrogant to admit they needed "saving," or that the Pixar purchase was a Hail Mary pass, Steve Jobs was still their largest stockholder (right?). The silence from Emeryville/Anaheim/Burbank would seem to be in poor taste.

Well, Lasseter was part of the Wired main page (beautiful solemn page) last night. If you look, you'll see him there a little ways down:

http://www.wired.com/

In general the worldwide communal outpouring over Steve's death is astounding (Russia's president said some things...) - making the world a smaller place (for a short time) in a good way, Steve would have liked that.

I think I'll go watch one of the many Apple Keynotes (iPad intro maybe) that are available for free as a podcast on iTunes and think some more about this man that rocked the world.

A chap from Pixar (can't remember who) was on our local radio this morning.

I've lurked here for several years making AA a part of my daily morning (and whenever I had the chance) read. I read informative posts from veteran members, insightful notes from transient, infrequent posters and typical bullhonkey from trolls. It's what made it all a community experience. A human experience.

I've been an Apple product user for over 25 years and have always felt the strongest thing we had when we didn't have the killer product or app, was the sense of community. The community among apple users was some weird combination of art, ingenuity and humor. At least, that's what I always felt. Steve had an indelible impression on my life -- far before the iPod and nuovo Apple -- and I can't tell you how grateful I am for that.

As you can see, this is my first post as a registered user and I'm happy I made the departure from my own shyness and fickle reasons to join the community. And in a time when tragedy strikes in such a ubiquitous and profound way - it also gives rise to opportunities to help ourselves and each other do good...and count our own blessings. I'm going to try and do that for myself and for others here.

I just want to thank you all (esp the folks at AA) for educating me, making me laugh and, of course, recently, making me cry. Let's make Steve proud.

Disney's CEO, Bob Iger was interviewed on Nightline and also issued a statement that can be read on various sites.

Point is, it was an insignificant grammatical error. You, and everyone else, knew what was meant...but you just had to be a...well, a Pooch.

The bickering ends now. Both sides are rendered foolish in an argument where there is no correct answer.

Tom Ashbrook did an hour on Steve today on his WBUR radio show "On Point." Included Leander kahney, Nancy Koehn of Harvard Biz School, and Lev Grossman of Time. Ms. Koehn was particularly worth listening to. She really gets it.

http://onpoint.wbur.org/2011/10/06/steve-jobs

On the other hand, "Marketplace" was its usual smarmy, smartass self about Apple today. Really shameful. Listen to it if you want to hear (again) how the rest misunderstand what Jobs did, and get mad as hell.

One more time: Apple stuff is not about the cool factor, and it's not about planned obsolescence!

I agree. Marketplace - a program that I generally like, and consider to be usually spot on - was incredibly snarky, shallow, and clichétic today on the topic of SJ and Apple. They should be embarrassed. (I am sure they'll hear about it in spades).

Great look at Jobs' legacy from Jim Cramer over on Mad Money - worth the watch, really:

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000049802


PBS Newshour did a great analysis and talk today. Too bad about Marketplace, I normally like them.

Another just to make you chuckle from the Onion:

"We haven't just lost a great innovator, leader, and businessman, we've literally lost the only person in this country who actually had his shit together and knew what the hell was going on," a statement from President Barack Obama read in part, adding that Jobs will be remembered both for the life-changing products he created and for the fact that he was able to sit down, think clearly, and execute his ideas...


Farewell Steve.

Thanks for the quote and the link. I'll have to watch later on something else, 'cause CNBC IS STILL USING FLASH!

(And thanks to Steve for all he insisted on doing for the Nets. Seriously.)

And as counterpoint, the ever gracious rms writes:

Quote:
Steve Jobs, the pioneer of the computer as a jail made cool, designed to sever fools from their freedom, has died.

As Chicago Mayor Harold Washington said of the corrupt former Mayor Daley, "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone." Nobody deserves to have to die - not Jobs, not Mr. Bill, not even people guilty of bigger evils than theirs. But we all deserve the end of Jobs' malign influence on people's computing.

Unfortunately, that influence continues despite his absence. We can only hope his successors, as they attempt to carry on his legacy, will be less effective.

What an ass. Some folks might wonder why I have a rather harsh opinion of freetards. Because their dear leader is a turd. Even then, when that jerk dies, I'll find something nice to say about him beyond good riddance.

Thank you, I get the picture. Why do you use only his initials? Is there a freetard secret police? I wouldn't be surprised if there were.

Illustrates that the greatest danger from both left and right comes from the simple minds at the extremes. It's why you can say with some people, "he's so left, he's right" and vice-versa.

And I've always disliked that overgrown-adolescent cartoon GNU logo. Now I know why. It's him.
