    Steve Jobs, though I had have never owned an Apple product, I believe that you have left an indelible mark on the world with your revolutionary and visionary products that set the standards for others to follow. You will always be remembered. Rest in Peace
     
  5. Today is a very sad day I think. Not personally a fan of Apple and I don't own any products, but like many have said, a brilliant mind has passed away.

    RIP Mr Jobs!

    I have to admit i never was an Apple fanboi, but it's clear to me that Jobs was a visionary.

    RIP

    Thank you Steve for revolutionising my music and phone experiences with the iPod and iPhone, you were a true genius at design and marketing.

    I thought it was a bit strange that he stepped down a few weeks before the 4S launch... maybe that would explain Tim Cook's borefest a couple of days ago

    In my opinion I say he had a premonition/vision of his death and stepped down beforehand.

    I have to agree. I think Steve had a feeling his time was coming, and wanted to be sure everything was ready. After all, he's the one that recommended Tim to take over. Who knows what would have happened had he just plopped out while still the head hancho. I really do think he was preparing. Some people just know when their time is near.

    Then again, maybe he went to his oncologists and they told him after running tests that he maybe shouldn't take out any yearly magazine subscriptions...but then again maybe Steve was a scryer.

    wow! I mean wow! is this real? I've just come into work and this is the first thing I hear? I almost don't believe my work mates, come on techspot and its here to?

    R.I.P. Steve, You have changed the way I've thought about phone, the reason I moved from Sony Mini Disc to iPod. You have shaped Apple to what it is today.

    Tim Cook, Make Steve Proud, keep Apple alive...

    That photo of him that surfaced that everyone said was photoshopped was probably the real deal. I'm pretty sure he knew a few months ago, and he wanted to spend time with his family, and not hasten his death by dealing with the stress of running a multibillion dollar company.

    I cannot imagine the stress that he went through on a daily basis. It may not be a stretch to say that the last decade secured his legacy as a computer pioneer that will be talked about for many years to come, but at the cost of his health.

    This is sad news. I was never a fan of Apple, but this man was a pioneer. May his soul rest in peace.

    Terrible news. The poor man was only 56. He could have accomplished so much more.

    Rest in peace, Steven Jobs.

    Although I've never liked the man I did respect him, the tech world won't be the same without him. May he rest in peace in the big icloud in the sky.
