It is no wonder he did not showed up at iPhone 4GS launch... Apple fans claim that Apple is magical, but I think they are not necromancers...

I may not be an Apple fan, but personal computing is better for his involvement for sure.

All the best for his family.

WoW! This is weird. I was out in the field today delivery barn wood, when I had these thoughts running through my head: What would happen if Steve Jobs passes away? Will it be a private ceremony? Will Bill Gates attend? etc. While I'm on the road, I don't listen to the radio and the only time I was online today was early this morning and saw no mention of Job's passing. The thoughts went away as quick as they came in, leaving me back to thinking about Bitcoin, Barn Wood, and Leather. (Damn, I wish pussy was on that list--I'm gettin' old man! Gettin' old!)

RIP, Mr. Jobs.

It was about time...

He had a very rare form of pancreatic cancer, if he did not died this year or something, I would start to wonder if he was a medicine genius too...

“Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” -- Steve Jobs at a Stanford University commencement ceremony in 2005.

Great quote. And someting for others to learn from!

R.I.P Steve Jobs. Didn't always agree with your opinions/visions, but it is undeniable that you MADE Apple, and all the great products that we enjoy today.

Hope you are in peace Steve Sad ...

I dislike apple as well, but sad to see anyone pass away. I caught the cnn breaking news of him passing away.

Bill had a saying,

Quote
[8:57 p.m. ET] Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates: "I'm truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs' death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."

[8:55 p.m. ET] Reaction from John Russell, a reporter at the Indianapolis Star, on his Facebook page: " iSad."

R.I.P Steve.

In light of the news, I remembered this:

  http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/hackers/steve-wozniak/

which had me in tears when I first read it.  All of the 'hackers' bios were pretty good (imho), but I liked this one the best.

I'd wish Job's family condolences if I thought they would ever hear them of course (but probably would not include the link.)

I'll be wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and birkies this weekend and tip a drink for those early days of micro-computers.

Steve Jobs was my idol. He went through so much, and somehow managed to keep going until the very end. When he stepped down from CEO, I thought it would be unbearable to even stay sane. And now this.
So...I bought a trackpad yesterday.
