thanks for sharing
If you think that's bad, don't go to the front page forums. Some really awful people there.
Sadly, too true. Cryaxx just can't help himself.
Well actually there's been a lot of cancer in my family. My father survived 13 years after he initial diagnosis of prostate cancer, but then it spread to is liver and went from there to other places and he died 6 months later.
Rest in Peace Steve Jobs.
I know he was sick, but words can not express my feelings about the news.
I made this wallpaper for my phone and I wanted to share...
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." -- George S. Patton
Dear Steve, Thanks. Your work changed tech, made the Padd a dream come true for us trekkies, and pushed other companies and innovators to be better by focusing on the user more than the hardware. I missed hearing "oh and one more thing" last week, and it's too bad we will never hear it again. I may not have enjoyed your products, but your ideals and grass-roots story is something to admire and be inspired by.
"Being the richest man in the cemetery doesnt matter to me
Going to bed at night saying weve done something wonderful
thats what matters to me."
Sad news indeed.
'friend'? That's some title.
I think the term "friend" is appropriate. A friend is.. "1. A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. 2. A person whom one knows; an acquaintance. 3. A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause" Not to speak for the OP but perhaps he was thinking of definition #3. Steve Jobs has been a part of our lives for 35 years, helping shape the world we live in. Like any friend, he has helped us grow in ways we perhaps never would have experienced on our own. He has helped influence the way we are in ways we can't count or comprehend. Like a friend, he has been there.. not physically in bodily form.. but his thoughts, his dreams, his ideas have been with it in the form of his products that are such a part of many of our lives. Perhaps I am stretching this metaphor some but when when we have had and used an Apple product made during most of the past 35 years, we have been using something that Steve had a hand in creating, developing and making available for all of us to use to, hopefully, make our life a little better, just like you hope a friend would do. Yes, like most friends, he wasn't perfect and perhaps you were able to ignore or discount those things you didn't like about him.. people who didn't see him as a friend probably accentuated those negatives and discounted his positives.. but like any friend you hoped he would be around for as long as possible and now that he isn't, there is some pain in the fact that there is now a void in your life, even if it is a small one. Steve Jobs has been a friend to many.. maybe an unconventional friend.. but a friend nonetheless.. someone that will be missed even if he was never met by us.. a friend who helped change the world in so many ways.
Even though I have never been a Steve Jobs fanboy and actually since the early 90s stop using Apple products, I was very surprised by my reaction to reading Kyle's news post that Steve had died. Didn't think it would make me as sad as it did. My reaction kind of shocked me.
Well said my friend, amazing the asshats that post here.... I thought these dudes would have more class, sigh. Evidently the nerd fraternity is not that much envogue anymore.
RIP, I will miss his keynote speaches. You could tell in his voice that he loved what he did and the products he sold.
PC finally got him.
His charisma is irreplaceable.
already posted on here
Hope his legend continues in another world.
RIP, you will be missed.
Apple stock rose slightly today. Interesting considering the news. I thought it would plummet hard
Jobs' death really shouldn't have an effect on Apple stock considering he resigned as CEO ahead of time.
Apple stock kicked back up after the "buy on the rumor, sell on the news" people were done with their iPhone 4S news selling spree.
Devastating news. May you finally rest in peace my friend.
I have a problem with people comparing him to the gretest minds the world has ever known. He's being compared to davinci, einstein and tesla which is just crazy. He sold gadgets he didn't invent anything although he put his name on a ton of patents. He didn't cure cancer or end world hunger either, but you wouldn't knoeqw it reading some of these articles or watching the news.
He didn't just put his name on patents. He actually had a hand in the process. There are plenty of Apple-related patents that do NOT have his name on them.
Sure he did.
He actually didn't. Again, there are numerous Apple patents which don't bear his name.
Here's an article discussing some of his patented ideas: http://technologizer.com/2009/05/28/the-patents-of-steve-jobs/
A great man!
