Apple says Steve Jobs has died.
He was the co-founder, chairman, and former chief executive officer of Apple Inc. and was the driving force behind Apple's surge as a consumer tech and computer company with the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
RIP It's a sad day for the industry.
A true visionary, a genius, a dreamer. Rest in peace, Steve :(
RIP, totally wasn't expecting that he was THIS ill, he seemed fine a few weeks ago.
So sorry for the family. Thanks for the future, Steve.
While many may have had their differences and likings to the Apply product, there is no denying that this man was indeed a game changer. He took a simple product and made it into gold. RIP.
couldnt have said it better my self.
Really wasn't expecting this today. This year ya, but it shocked me when I saw it today. RIP...
Agree, I was hoping when he left Apple he'd have more time with his family. Never enough time, I guess.
I think we knew it was coming but I figured he'd have many more years left.
Wow, this came all a sudden, but sadly it likely would have occurred soon given how poor his health was. He certainly made a mark on tech industry. But not just that. He made a mark on the film industry as well by starting Pixar.
He didn't actually start Pixar. He acquired it from Lucasfilm. Though he was certainly at the helm as they transitioned from a technology company to a content company.
This is really Sad, despite all the hate i have for Apple, i always liked Steve Jobs, "May He Rest In Peace", I'm sure he's already looking into ways on how to Innovate "Heaven". Just Like CAT said, "Thanks For The Future, Steve"
I never was much of a fan of Apple on the whole, but I did like a few of their products. One thing can't be doubted: the weren't afraid to try something different.
See you on the other side, Steve.
We will miss you Steve, RIP...
R.I.P Steve,a true tech legend of our time,.,.,.
not everyone like him, but everyone will agree he defined many things in our lifestyle! RIP, Jobso!
RIP Steve Jobs. We will miss you dearly. You were an extraordinary person. A dreamer, innovator, visionary, a pioneer, revolutionary!
I'm not a fan of Apple's business model but the man was a real game changer and he'll be sorely missed.
Its sad it truly is. I really wanted to see him play a role as someone outside of Apple and spend time with his family. I hate Apple, but even I am feeling bad that he died. He was a good man and good at making something out of nothing. The only thing I don't like are people going a bit too far with comments regarding him. Yahoo compared him to Thomas Edison....
Truly broke my heart when I logged on and saw this
Ya. I really was wishing that he would make a recovery and go back to ceo or something. Really sad. Apple won't seem the same without him.
It's so weird but I'm actually sad..
I still find it hard to believe he's actually dead..
May he rest in peace.
