    Sigh. So Jobs is dead ? such a pity. The guy was a genius I have to admit. A legend in the tech world. Set the standard for the industry. Started the revolution. Though I disliked his brand, I liked the guy. He had his own .... way doing his business. And his presentations were something else. He WILL be missed.
    RIP.

    @ Derwin75:
    Grow up please. If you can't, get out of here.

    Should have done that from the beginning mate.

    Steve was a pretty brilliant mind, could say he was the one who saved Apple, but I for one do not respect the company, but it doesn't mean I can't respect the brilliant ideas that came from the man behind the company. RIP

    Yeah, brings home that mankind's overall technology level isn't really all that high, no matter how high tech things look from our perspective. Heck, we can't even manufacture replacement body parts (as in grown from stem cells). That would fix a lot of problems for a lot of people. :ohwell:

    One of the first computers i ever used was a Mac at age 9 i think. Cant remember the name of the game i played but it helped you add and subtract as you walked around zapping walking TV's.

    I think we too have a saying here that's similar to the western one

    "Don't speak ill of the defenseless dead, it's cowardice."

    And, no, there's no freedom of speech in the People's Communist e-Republic of TPU.

    Take your lack of class in Jobs hating in his obituary thread to another, later thread.

    Whatever your opinion of Apple, or his sucess, Steve Jobs was much more than the company he led.

    This video (to me) shows who he really was as a man, and what made him the big name that he is:


    R.I.P. Steve Jobs

    He has passed on to better places,Long live his inventions.

    RIP
    Steve.......


    Any of you know that he was the Founder of PIXAR And was then on a seat on a special six person steering committee at Walt Disney.Well respect the man,All the FU posts are out of control, to a man who gave us so much we should remember him and his movies here is list of them in case you watched these with your kids or as a kid.

    The first film produced by the partnership, Toy Story, brought fame and critical acclaim to the studio when it was released in 1995. Over the next 15 years, under Pixar's creative chief John Lasseter, the company would produce the box-office hits A Bug's Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), Cars (2006), Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008), Up (2009) and Toy Story 3 (2010). Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up and Toy Story 3 each received the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, an award introduced in 2001.

    You know, I used to hate Steve Jobs. I hated his signature look, the way he spoke down to other companies, that he could market products in a way nobody else could. I hated that Apple sold--in my mind--overpriced junk to hipsters and the mainstream. Under that hatred though, lies unyielding respect.

    Steve Jobs helped to revolutionize the Tech Industry, more than any other person I can think of. He made technology pretty, cool, and easy to use. I don't much believe in the Free Market driving competition, but Steve Jobs is a pretty good argument for that. He forced other companies--usually ones fathoms larger than his own--to innovate. As a devout anti-Apple fan, I respect Steve Jobs, and no matter what you think of him, nobody deserves the disease he fought for so long.

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs

    RIP Mr. Jobs

    Although I am also one of those who rejected all of Apple being as illness of mass psychosis, as many here on TPU, but he was for sure a great leader, a inspirational person and a true pioneer of the past decade.

    I wouldn't know where to start on this... It IS weird, although cancer spreads, well, like cancer, primarily among "ordinary people", and at suspiciously fast rate as well as on suspiciously wide global scale... except for those rural, globally detached places... never mind... although not a big fan of either Apple or any other sort-of MNC, I was genuinely saddened by this "news" today, he was indeed a unique mind... hope you find a better, peaceful place, Steve, wherever...

    Almost every component in PCs were made by employee's at Foxconn. To single out only Apple for "allowing" stressed employees to endure those enforced work conditions is naive. If you're pointing the finger only at Apple, you're obviously ill-informed.

    Steve Jobs was not some money hungry mongrel CEO/leader. He was a brilliant businessman who somehow knew what the average technology consumer wanted before they even knew how to describe what it was they were looking for. He wanted Apple products available to the masses, just like any other CEO wants with their products. He had isolated visions that he somehow brought to physical form time and time again.

    - He was an amazing innovator, CEO, and person.
    - If Apple didn't exist, the computer and technology world would be bland.
    (Do any of you really think Microsoft and the PC industry would be where it was today without Apple, and vice versa?)
    - Media players, tablets/slates, smartphones, applications, and even hardware design throughout the entire technology industry were indeed ripple effects of Apple products.
    - And lets not forget about Pixar. I was 11 years old when I saw Toy Story and I couldn't believe how amazing it looked/was when I was that age. If Jobs didn't step in and save Pixar, that experience would have never existed. The same goes for the rest of the amazing Pixar films that followed.

    I personally feel that Jobs was an icon in the technology world and I will indeed miss him. Though I am a diehard PC enthusiast and spend plenty of money on my PC builds, I did have a few Apple products along side. I've had iPhones, iPods, MacBooks, and iMacs. All of them worked without flaw. All of them had awesome resale value. And all of them were awesome, all thanks to Steve Jobs. I wish Steve to be reincarnated into another human, without him, the tech world is just too bland.

    Ya know what sucks about this news is he was a billionaire. A damn BILLIONAIRE and cancer didn't care. He had all the means and ways to fight cancer and couldn't win. That doesn't say much for the peons like us. What I get from this story is if diagnosed with cancer LIVE IT UP. Drink and be marry. Because you ARE going to die sooner then later.

    As for Job dieing himself I don't feel bad. My family has always treated death as a celebration. I am assuming because we were/are a military breed or Irish decent. We don't have funerals. We have parties. We stand around, get drunk and talk crap about the money they owed us or that one time when something funny happened. Why? Because we know that person lived a full life and wouldn't want his friends and family sad and depressed. Steve Jobs is dead? Meh. Ill get drunk to that and bitch about a lack of a new innovation. Bastard left us hanging.
