    RIP Mr Jobs.

     

    To me you are a visionary and completely made me a believer in Apple Tech. As I sit here I look at my house that has three apple TVS and 2 Ipod touchs. I have all of my videos, music and more sitting on my server that streams to all of my Apple TVS. It is the most amazing thing to see and witness and to know that my house has zero blu ray players, dvd players or even a DVR because of the Apple TVS. I owe it all to you.

     

    I stream my videos ripped from blu ray movies in full HD quality and someone once told me when they saw my set up they said "My home was the future of home entertainment" and thats all thanks to you.

     

    My next purchase will be the Airport Extreem to make it truly digital.

     

    Thanks Again I am hopefull for a very succesful future for Apple and you have made my life such a tech happy life.

     

    I will Miss You.

    Thank you Steve Jobs for your vision, hard work and perseverance.  You have sacrificed your life for great and wonderful things and I'm sure it was worth it.  We live better lives because of you and you have touched many people in immeasurable ways. May you rest in peace and may God have mercy on your soul!

    Thank you Steve Jobs for enriching my life for the past 27 years. I still have your Apple IIc which was my gateway to all of the future magic you and your team provided for all these many years.

    A true inspiration and died way before his time.

     

    Similar to my iMac.

    You brought us the most amazing devices in the world.

    You revolutionized the Phone, the MP3, the tablet, and the computer.

    You made Disney and Pixar become a great way of entertainment.

    You came back to a dying company and brought it back up to be at the top of the world.

    You will be missed


    Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs
    Rest in peace...

    Steve Jobs was a true visionary and enabled the dreams of so many others to be realized through his professional pursuits.  My first computing experience was in elementary school using LOGOS on an Apple IIE.  In high school, I created my first 3D computer animations on a Performa.  I bought my PowerMac G4 in 2001, and used it to make wedding videos while I went to college.  In college, my PowerBook G4 helped me get through successfully and with style.  My iPhone 4 will connect to the cloud on the 12th of this month.  My eMail signatures are two quotes from Steve - one from a stockholders meeting and one from a discourse given at a college graduation:

     

    “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

    “From everything I’ve heard, Babe Ruth only had one home run, and he kept hitting it over and over.”

     

    It's odd to feel loss for someone that you never met in person; however, I do feel loss.  May he rest in peace and find joy in the life to come. 

     

    I think I'll do a day of computer/electronic-gadget silence in his honor on the weekend.  Why not, right?

    Since I was born in 1975, I have been lucky enough to witness the birth of the personal computer, and all the other products that all of you have already mentioned. Maybe he did somehow, but I do not think that Steve really understood what his influence on the world would be. He truly has been a major force with changing it for the better. I would give anything to see his legacy one hundred years from now. Hopefully, Apple, and Steve's visions, will somehow live on forever.

     

    I want to pass on my condolences to the Jobs family. We are all greaving with you. He was, in my opinion, the greatest chief executive officer of all time. He can never be replaced.

    My condolences to Steve’s family, friends and those who loved or simply cared about him without ever meeting him in person. I am the latter person, and I can barely hold my tears. We are all going to miss this incredible human being, this visionary who, among very few other things in this world, showed and inspired people for a better and brighter future and did everything he could to lead them there till the very last day.

     

    I never knew that someone, whom I've never met, could influence my life so greatly. It's a really sombre moment for me realizing, that one of my biggest wishes — meeting and having a conversation with Steve in person, — will never come true anymore.

     

    It is really hard to say "goodbye" to someone twice in one month. And it's even sadder, because with Steve it's for the last time.

     

    We will always remember you, Steve. Thank you for all you've done.

    Rest in peace.

    Just heard the news on TV, too, and, well, what is there to say? My MBP and iPhone are now orphans. All I can tell the Apple people out there is, "Keep up the good work". Make Steve proud, wherever he is now. So long, mate!

    I am now old... it happens when all of those who made a lasting impression on us as an individual, have passed away.  As someone who has been crippled for some years, Apple has been my window of choice to the world (not unlike the Andrew Wyeth watercolor, "Christina's World").

     

    I will miss Steve and wish to express my deep sorrow to his wife and children.  He will remain in in my heart for always.  I'm looking forward to seeing how he brings his genius to those Pearly Gates...  he was truly amazing.

    I feel fortunate to have been born at the birth of the personal computer age.  Growing up as a child I remember using an Apple IIe as my first computer in school, and Apple IIgs as my first home computer, and then various Macs ever since.  When the iPhone came out, I jumped at the chance to use this first true "smartphone".  And the same with the iPad.

     

    I see Apple as a company that makes great products, with a focus on people first.  Steve Jobs was the visionary at Apple that pushed the company and their employees to great heights.  Throughout the years, Steve was a tireless leader in the tech industry.  He was a true giant.

     

    I will miss Steve at the helm of Apple.  It's a sad day for the company that has created so many devices I use on a daily basis.  I hope that Apple will continue Steve's legacy of insanely great innovation.

     

    I wish to express my condolences to Steve's family.  May God bless you and keep you.

     

    Thank you Steve.
