    Very sad indeed. It will be interesting to see where Apple goes without him.

    I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but if Apple made an iCar I'd buy it.

    He really was the Henry Ford of our time. He'll be missed.

    From his 2005 Stanford commencement speech:

    "No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

    What he accomplished in 56 years makes you wonder what he was going to do with more time. His passing is a loss to all of us.

    Re: Steve Jobs Died

    Read iCon by Young & Simon. The dramatic story of Jobs from befriending high school buddy, Steve Wozniak; hippie days working at Atari; living in India wearing next to nothing, completely disoriented; contracted scabies and dysentery; returning to California to work with Woz on Atari's game, Breakout; his first sale of 12 processor boards to the Byte Shop who returned them expecting computers with cases and power supplies. The whole Apple fiasco; the NeXT disaster; the Pixar purchase from Lucas for just under $10 million; his deal to get back in Apple.

    He lived the life of 4-5 mortal beings. I wouldn't be surprised if his DNA is coded in the operating systems of all the ipodphonepads throughout the world. He will never die....01100101101011101

    Only two unrelated deaths managed to sadden me deeply, first it was Princess Diana and now Steve Jobs.

    What a sad day!!!

    I'd sacrifice a dozen of our Arab rulers along with their governments just for your shirt, Steve Jobs, let along for you to live longer... God bless your soul. رحمة الله عليك

    Hassan, my friend, my sentiments exactly!

    I remember where I was when I heard of Princess Diana's passing and I'll always remember where I was when my son texted me, on my iPhone from his iPhone that Steve Jobs passed away.

    Rest In Peace Steve, you've earned it.

    Lol's but I am with you on this statement. We lost a real innovator. He will be missed by all who were Apple followers and users. Myself included. All the best to his family.

    Re: Steve Jobs Died

    I am in San Francisco. The mourners outside the Apple store downtown holding their iPads with pictures of Steve Jobs - some weeping quietly speaks profoundly of the impact one visionary can have on the world. A sad day indeed.

    Emerson's thought is so appropriate......"Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail..."

    Jobs often stated that he wanted Apple's to be the BMW of computers. I guess he never owned one.

    Re: Steve Jobs Died

    I was just walking into the Apple store in Reston, VA when the news hit (sure enough it was a pop-up on my iPhone). I told one of the salesmen and he began swtiching all of the computers to the Apple web page, which had Jobs' photo and memorium. The place became quieter and quieter and one of the employees was wondering if they should close.

    Hearing the awkwardness of many of the reporters on CNN and local news, who are too young or short-sighted to know the legacy of Jobs even before the iPod existed (meaning they know nothing of the garage in Cupertino, Apple II, the original "1984" Macintosh or even the story of Pixar productions), one does not get a sense of how important he was to technology and media in the world, and that he did it all without market researchers, executives or consultants whispering in his ear. Just him and his hand-picked team. I think over time, business students, writers, engineers and scientists will all be struggling to learn "how he did it"

    "He who dies with the most toys is, nonetheless, still dead."

    You're hilarious!

    But FYI he wanted the Mac to be like a Porsche at that time Jobs was driving a Porsche 928:

    Add to that, he used to reward his salespeople a Porsche 944:

    My guess if he wasn't too busy developing Macs, iOs, iPods, iPhones and iPads for us he might have been our P-9 fellow... That might have made Ken a big Apple fan for sure like the rest of the world
