    RIP Steve. I was never the biggest fan of your products but I can't knock what you achieved and how you changed the world of technology.

    And I think you've done one more great thing for so many people. Sadly, you are proof that having billions in the bank doesn't buy you a longer life. I think that will resonate with many folks and they'll be saying "perhaps I shouldn't worry about money and retirement as much as I do"

    I was never an Apple guy because of the cost, but I always respected Jobs and Woz...check out Jobs' speech to Stanford grads back in 2005, I think...

    ...also, Home | TWiT.TV went live with the news and had a thoughtful discussion of his life...it's home to all the tech wizards so maybe you might here something you haven't before...

    Theses sort of outbursts are usually by a retarded no life who will never make anything of himself so spouts shit about the dead.
    I never bought or owned anything apple, however it's just not the Iwhatever that made this guy, it's the technology he and his workers put together for all people to use. (should they have enough money to buy them )
    When I was young I kicked my sister.
    my mum gave me such a smack, then asked "do you want another one"?
    "Jeez" mum I said "I have enough trouble with one sister without you having another"

    The man certainly made an impact, didn't he? At one point earlier this year Apple had the largest market cap of any company in the world. Simply amazing.

    RIP. You won't be forgotten, that's for sure.

    It's not fair to bash on Steve cuz Apple fanboys are such losers. Anyone who got their first computer in the 80's will respect the guy for what he was. Personally, I think Apple fanboyism has a lot to do with demise of a lot of companies in the early 90's such as Amiga and Atari. Apple was the only company that could rival Microsoft and their really horrid OS called Windows back in the day. The fanboyism turned into cult. Not Steve's fault.

    .... Steve Jobs was the only technology guy who managed to put a leash on the Music Industry. If not for him, we wouldn't be able to legally own music from all the major labels at just a click of a button.


    ...and I think the music industry owes much to him: he single-handedly brought people back to PURCHASING music, because he made it so convenient and affordable to do so. iCloud and Music Match is going to further this idea -- people are going to be paying for the pirated music they've downloaded. The music industry gets back without needing to take 'consumers' to court, and everyone is happy. Respect.

    which is a pretty interesting point when you consider how the music industry utterly rejected the golden opportunity that was Napster. record companies wouldn't have even had to make anything, just license their back catalogs to make money...

    So, he sold people something they were getting for free? That IS genius.

    Bill Gates must be dancing a little jig as he signs the condolence card.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    [QUOTE=Thaitanium;1600975] Really, mourn the loss of an Einstein, Galileo, Ghandi...and the like, and sing their praises for their contribution to humanity...but a man like Jobs really only created an almost religious like following of braindead consumers...not really anything to write home about... Very fine substance there TT, and well phrased as usual. Anyway, RIP Steve.
