Was anyone shocked to hear off this? I knew he was ill and that he had stepped down from being the 'face' of the other Apple  but to read that was a shock. He had a big effect on how we life having been instrumental in bringing about the macintosh computers, ipod, iphone, ipad and many other devices into our lives, and for many millions of people it is unthinkable to not have them. The ipod brought mp3 players and portable music to a completely different level, the same with many other apple devices.

And of course he did something else nearly everyone doubted would happen – he brought The Beatles to itunes after so many years trying to get them to sign up.

Whether you like apple and the effect they have had on society there is no doubt he had a massive effect on how many people live their lives.

Thank you Steve.

 

Edit: I had no idea he was behind Pixar and brought films like Toy Story to the cinema. He was also one of the largest shareholders in Disney.

It came as a shock to me as well. Honestly, at first I thought it was some sort of hoax- until Apple confirmed it. 

Without Steve Jobs, I wouldn't have the lovely laptop I am typing on today. There would be no app store, no iPhone… really, the list goes on and on. 

Steve Jobs will be missed.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

It's really sad for all the people who like Apple products. He was definetly a visionary with a major impact in society.

The man was a genius and he will justifiably be analyzed and revered for years.

Between my computers, iPods, and Beatle stuff, I feel that I'm surrounded with Apple! (And I live in the Big Apple!)

Did he have to use the name Apple?apple01

It's quite a shock to the world that he's gone at such a young age. Cancer is a horrible disease that should never be wished upon anyone. He was such an innovator. The technology world has lost a visionary and icon. 

 

I bet a lot of people are going to dress up like him this Halloween. 

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

When I went to Google this morning, I was shocked to see "Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011".  

I didn't know much about him, but I hope his spirit smiles when I say "I love my iPod" at least 2 times each day.

Thanks, Steve.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I usually say that I absolutely hate technology. But hey, I use it everyday. And I think Steve was just brilliant.

I'll be missing him.

It's very strange reading something like this for me, because he was only two years older than my dad, whose name is also Steve, although, thank God, he isn't sick or anything. Poor Steve and his family. It's always a little bit freaky when something like this happens. Plus, he was really a genius. a-hard-days-night-george-4(For some reason this looked like George blowing kisses, so I thought it might be appropriate. Kisses for Steve, guys.)

Such a brilliant man. Thanks for changing music technology for the better, RIP. apple01

And seaglass eyes sunny smile, he was a year older than my Dad as well. It really does make you think, it's just not that old at all.

I like Apple's products a little less as the years go by (I ditched my iPhone and iPod for better products, hate the walled garden they try to lock people into, but I still love my iMac), and by various accounts he could be a pretty unpleasant guy if the mood took him. But he had a brilliant, far-reaching vision for how technology should work, elevating design to the forefront, and was a marketing genius. The world's a little less colourful without him. And the Stanford speech he gave in 2005 remains one of the most inspiring things I've ever read.

I, too, was shocked. I'm thankful for Steve Jobs -- without him, I wouldn't have the iPod I'm posting on, the iMac I normally post on, or the Bluetooth keyboard designed for iPad that I'm using now.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

It's so sad!  He was an amazing person and I'm so glad he got The Beatles on iTunes….thanks for all of your genius, Steve.  We'll miss you.  Have fun on your "Safari".

My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each other's negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people

That's very nice of him, and he has some points, but I have to say…they broke up. My model for sheer awesomeness is the Beatles.
