Apple founder Steve Jobs dies

My heart goes out to Steve's family, friends and colleagues. My dad bought our first family computer, an Apple IIc, when I was in grade school. Then switched to the Mac after OS X came out and got a second gen iPod which I still use today. My life would certainly be different without his innovation.

He looked bad last time we saw him. Prayers go out to his family and friends. It's a sad day in the modern technology world. Thanks Steve for everything you've given our world.

Sorry to see you go Steve, thanks for all the cool stuff and understanding how to link humans and computers to make their life easier. For understanding and striving to make life better for us , and saving hours of our own lives for family, football, and friendship.
Instead of us wasting time serving and trying to figure out useless machine/computer garbage that meant nothing to our lives, you strove to simplify it and put the power in our lives to make "A Difference" and " Think Different".
While almost all computer companies are eaten at the core with greed, and only care about margins, owned by businessmen, who only care about changing the box color so they could resale to the suckers and unknowing. You really cared about our interaction, to make our live better, and in doing so rebuilt the entire industry many times, with your genius and inventiveness.
You have given us a great gift, and I hope and know God will give you the gift of peace and happiness forever.
After all we all know Heaven would never use windows,lol. Thats in the other place

I am more sad for us than you. We have lost a man that everyone copied and waited to tell us what was next, so they could put their name on it, and resale their own uncaring and unthinking version of it. The computer world has lost our vision for the future and the head of R&D.
No matter what OS or hardware you are partial to, we now have a huge void in the industry, and no one to fill it.
As a friend told me, if Gates dies, that affects windows, if Jobs dies that will effect everyone. There is no one to fill his shoes and push the industry in the correct direction. We might be headed for another computer dark age.
I can't even imagine what he would have invented or re-invented the right way, if he had 20 more years of life. No one can, because no one could ever out think Steve Jobs, and thats because of one simple thing..Steve Jobs loved computers and loved what he was doing.. he was never a useless businessman. He believed in the philosophy of merging man and machine into a digital life style.

Most try to dumb down Steves technical side, which is really amusing to me, knowing that Jobs was one of the 1st hackers, phishers, and helped prefect the black box.
Jobs was an expert at code and electronics. He knew exactly what he was doing by modulizing the Mac OS and Next, like legos, really brilliant idea. In OS X you simply drop the the new application onto your desktop, and start using it. In Unix, windows, and other OS's we still have to compile, install,reboot, etc..

No one really invents anything, thats just the truth. It was already there. We just use our brains and open our eyes to discover it.
Einstein didn't make physics or create the forces of the universe. He just used his brain to discover them. His genius is that he could simplify it, and explain it to us using math.
Jobs didn't create computers or OS's, no one did, it was already there, he just discovered it and simplified it for us.

Nice Jobs see you in iHeaven
