    Steve Jobs, the mind behind the iPhone, iPad and other devices that turned Apple Inc. into one of the world's most powerful companies, has died.

    Jobs took a leave from his post in January after suffering from pancreatic cancer.

    The 56-year-old underwent an operation for cancer in 2004 and a liver transplant in 2009.

    Jobs formed Apple in 1976 marketed what was considered the world's first personal computer.
    Apple issued a statement saying "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor."

    I'll be damned...had no idea he had cancer. This is as sudden and unexpected as MJ's death.

    Mr. Jobs, we thank you. :worthy:

    To die with 56 years is far too soon. :rip:
    No matter if he or anybody else.

    Anyway his idea and visions for Apple I don't honor. They are wrong.

    I read an "interesting" tweet from Marc Cuban in response to Jobs' death......"The PC era is officially over"

    WTF?

    May his Soul Rest In Peace....
    we all miss you..
    Marketing strategy of Jobs is way ahead of many successful people. Thats y before his end.. he saw Apple Corp. edge past the Software Giant Microsoft..
    I think he achieved his dream my making his company to a great level than anyone can imagine..

    People in different ways to the corporation Apple: its products, marketing ...
    But everyone understands the contribution that Steve Jobs presented in modern life.
    His innovations have changed many lives. He wanted to change the world, and he achieved it.

    :rip: Steve Jobs.

    Never liked Apple, never hated them (but most fanboys I do and not fangirls, since well.. they are girls :wassat:) but its a sad news to see the big mind behind Apple passing away. He did made the world different, since I think without him competing with Google and Microsoft then they products wouldn't be like it is now.

    R.I.P Steve Jobs.

    sad that someone has died, yes. sad that an early innovator (not inventor because he did not invent the pc unlike most imbeciles believe) in the early pc development has died, yes.

    but, sad that a mogul billionaire that promoted and supervised the development of mediocre products that were built from outdated hardware and cpus, sold at outrageously high mark-ups because of brand name and false marketing strategies and lies put into the media and marketing arena by the same company that their products are "immune to viruses" when they are not, nor will ever be, and who based aesthetics and brand as being just as important and even more important than functionality, reliability, and progression; and a CEO whose strategy was to market to the weak-minded who view name brand as being synonymous with functionality, reliability, and progression in order to fill his pockets, no, not sad at all, in fact good riddance to such things...

    may Apple's stocks go to the garbage where they belong with their iCrap junk...

    Steve Jobs was not a god or a genius by any means, he was more concerned with profits, not with progression or making anyone's "life better" as some claim. if you think so, you are sadly wrong, completely wrong in fact. name one thing that Apple has made "better"?? you can't because they didn't make anything "better" other than marketing schemes that play on people's stupidity...

    thanks for the support,

    not an attack on his person or speaking ill of the dead, that's what the first two lines were for, because he has done one thing that is notable--the rest were an attack on his method, not his person, because personally i don't know him, but from his method i think it speaks volumes to what kind of person he should be perceived as too...
