In fact we are, more or less, all here talking with each other right this minute because of him.

You folks are all great, and we've been through a lot together. I'm happy to be a part of this forum and I owe it to Steve Jobs. It's meant a lot to me.

You got that right. You folks have helped me through a lot and now
we can help each other through this. I like what was said earlier, it's
too bad we don't live closer together.

Without a doubt, and with no exaggeration, Steve Jobs altered the arc of my life.

Many thanks, Steve.

Jeebus.

That is the suckiest thing in a very long time.

Wait, he dies, and the stock goes up? The market is the strangest thing on the planet.

I just played "Here's to the crazy ones" to my son, right before I got here. He was 2 when it came out.


Those words should be on his grave.

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

I wouldn't have wanted to work for him, and he did not seem like a nice person but he was unique, he was brilliant and Apple would not have had this success without him. A remarkable individual.



I'll see you again... when we are both like golden clouds on the wind.

I'm deeply moved. For a man I don't know, have never met, and don't really know much about, he has inspired me. I tune out today's pop culture and idol worship, I could care less. But, Steve Jobs was different. I can't put it fully into words. I suspect that our politics, beliefs, and some other fundamentals would differ, but he has still made a big difference in my life. I will miss him.

and they won't be able to forget me - ever.

I'm not feeling sad really. I empathize with the grief of his family and wish them well. But Jobs has moved past whatever suffering he was coping with.

Thank you for bringing a little insanity laced with the magic of vision and imagination to the world. For wanting to make the world a better place and using your unique talents to make it happen in the way you knew best.

RIP, Steve Jobs.

A statement from President Obama:

Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.

The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.




"Success isn't about how much money you make. It is about the difference you make in people's lives."--Michelle Obama

Now that it has sunk in...
I first read about his passing here on MacResource with my Mac friends. Beneath my hands my early-2011 MacBook Pro, behind it my 2003 iMac G4 and to the right my 1998 Rev. B Bondi Blue iMac, and behind me my 1993 Performa 600 CD (my first Mac). All products of Apple and nearly all during Steve's second coming. I've never met him, only seen his keynotes on TV or the internet, but I feel like I've lost an old acquaintance. I feel sorrow and loss. He changed our worlds and our lives. Gone but not forgotten. Steve here's to you...Leader!

I can only echo others' surprise at being so strongly effected by the news of Steve's passing.

Was outside with the cat, heard the news on NPR over a gifted-to-me older iPod with FM adapter. Less than a minute later, the rain came down so hard that it drove us both running indoors. The rain obscured the wet spots tears had made on my shirt...







RIP Steve Jobs...

Standing here at 1 Infinite Loop. My son just put a bouquet of flowers on a bench acting as a makeshift memorial here. Bunch of news vans and reporters here along with employees and public. One just interviewed my son as well.

Heavy heart.

check out the video interview with Gates.

watch it all the way through to the end, where there is a very sweet moment and I think Jobs chokes up a little bit.

“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 other's 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.” SJ

No more pain and suffering. Only peace.

It makes me very sad to think of the pain his family is going through.

He will be greatly missed.
