PC Magazine: Former Apple Chief Steve Jobs Dies

Steve Jobs was a pioneer of the PC industry. One of the founders of Apple Inc, and its longtime CEO. His innovations have changed way people live their everyday life. I always picture Jobs, and Wozniak as just to two young guys who thought starting a computer company would be cool. We will truly never see a man like him again.

I first did word processing in college on a Macintosh. My first software engineering job was developing high end 3D applications on Apple computers. Those were my paper clip days.

Farewell Steve.

It's about freedom.

This is a tough day.

Tomorrow will see the reflection of a grey sky on aluminum and glass.

Thank you, Mr Jobs

I'm probably too young to have lived the beginning of apple, but all I saw was overprotected and overpriced products

Rest in peace Mr Jobs. I never had much to do with apple, but I mourn the passing of a visionaire.

Although I like many here newer really bought into the whole "i" thing or the culture of those things. Overpriced and overhyped to be honest. But the basic ideas and concepts were sound.
I'd be seriously stupid not to recognize the effect that Steve Jobs had on our world. From the personal computer to a phone that greatly surpasses that original in a ridiculously smaller package.
This man changed the world, he's a modern day Edison. He's had an effect in so many areas, films, animation, computers, phones, music and many more.
And he got fired from his own company and started again and his drive was such that they got him back! And most of his breakthroughs and really influential plans came after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2004! He seemed to be driven by the fact that he had seen and tasted his mortality and believed he had so much left to give.

We lost a brilliant human being yesterday, and I dare say that the world is going to be a lesser place for a while.

Rest in peace Steve, you've earned it.

Indeed. I loved his NeXT computer cube thing and the Apple RISC OS almost found a way into my study.

I didn't like the way that Apple had become a by-word for control freakery but, nonetheless, that's not a reason to mourn the man's passing.

I think the title of this thread needs to be changed. "Steve Jobs Dead today" is rather disrespectful. It should read "Steve Jobs has passed away" or something along those lines. Just a pet peev of mine.

That said...I never knew the man. Never liked any of his products and never liked his personality. He will be missed by many and his passing away is a loss to the world.

Rest In Peace Steve Jobs.

Bounties for all!

Not a fan of Apple, bought my Mum an iPod and used Macs at school and college growing up and that was it.

However his innovation inspired many products I do use by other companies and the world is better for his existence and brilliant creative mind.

Also I loved Toy Story growing up, one of the best movies ever. So thanks Steve.

bummer that he's dead, but hopefully apple will collapse now and the devs can stop supporting macs Twisted

Sad news indeed. 56 is too young. Imagine what he could have done with another 25 years at the top of Apple .. *sigh

As many people have already said, regardless of what we may think of Apple and the iCult the biggest drivers of technological innovation are competition and demand, and without Steve there would have been far less of both. In the 80's he helped bring computers from blue-chip corporations to our desks, and in the 00's he brought them from our desks to our pockets.

I actually wouldn't be surprised to someday find out that he didn't buy into the "Apple culture" any more than the rest of us and created it only as a means of driving computer technology into the next era...

RIP, Steve. You were the hero we needed, not the hero we deserved.
