    Though I would never buy an iPod or iPhone for myself, I was ecstatic when I actually got one. Truly innovative products made by a man who bounced back several times throughout his life. Now, as a grad student, Steve Jobs is an inspiration to me in that I know that I've never experienced life worse than him and that if he could survive it as long as he had, then so can I.

    Rest long and prosper.

    R.I.P Steve Jobs. One of the greatest innovators of this generation. The way we look at technology today is because of him whether its the smartphone or the personal computer or digital music, he single handedly revolutionized modern technology

    I had a feeling something like this might be coming soon after he retired given how much he loved his job and doing what he did...
    I personally have never owned an apple product and am certainly not a fan of their particular "pricing scheme," but it would be foolish to understate how much of an influence he had on the world of technology and the world in general.

    RIP...

    Agreed, completely


    (Disclaimer: Only reason why I own a Touch is because it was the only decent touch-screen mp3 player at the time (didn't like the offerings from Archos). Before that, I was a happy Sansa View owner.)

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs.

    I have never owned an Apple product in my life (yeah, no iPhones ever). However I cannot deny how Mr. Jobs had changed the whole tech world and had affected the lives of millions...

    According to a personal source of mine in the stock market. Apple still has 4-5 years of viability of good market potential.

    BUT...

    Yesterday's launch of the iPhone 4S is signaling some signs of Apple falling from its patent-warmongering perch back to the obscurities of hell.

    Nevertheless RIP Steve. I liked the several things you innovated in your products and how you literally changed the course of technology with the ideas of tablets, smartphones and even MP3 players to OS GUI design. Nevertheless, I wouldn't still get a Mac and would like to see the Corporation go down in shambles.
