Steve Jobs dies - For real

Posted 05 October 2011 - 04:47 PM

Not the tweet by TMZ last month.

But just a couple minutes ago it was announced for real on ABC news

Just heard it on the news. No matter how much I disliked Apple, I will miss Steve Jobs. He was a great innovator and a pioneer in the personal computing sector. R.I.P.

Wow, one day after the 4s he dies. I may dislike Apple, but no one can deny he was a great man in an important era.

I almost cried when I read that - the world has lost an amazing man and a visionary, who has inspired us all.
I'll miss him.

What time did he die?

You couldn't have hoped/paid for better Marketing.

When is the new IPhone released?

From what I am reading the horrible launch for the 4gs may have done him in.

Sad.

Still, you can't be disrespectful. Without apple a lot of the things you take for granted in a computer (the GUI for example) wouldn't exist (not in this form).
And what was wrong with the launch? I watched it through the apple site and it was fine, the new CEO did a great job at announcing.
Steve Jobs was a great man, and will continue to live on in Apple and their products.

Oh, I almost forgot.
RIP Steve! We'll miss you.

Addressing the side tangent about the launch - the failure of being innovative in the phone. People were expecting bigger screens, a different design, or something fancy. All they got was a speedier processor. Basically it wasn't ground breaking so it became viewed as a disappointment.

I wonder if he died because he walked into a Foxconn plant.

Even though I am not a fan of Apple, this guy was a genius.


RIP Steve Jobs.

Techies were expecting a miraculous phone that could deliver the fastest possible 4G speeds and great battery life even though no carrier can deliver that speed yet in any but select markets. Real people were buying so many of the iPhone 4 that it is the best selling phone in the world, followed by the 3GS. Those people will be duly impressed by the faster CPU and GPU in the 4S as well as Siri, dual antennas to make it almost impossible to hold the phone "wrong", IOS 5, and the fact that it's a world-phone capable of roaming almost anywhere. And of course they'll continue to be impressed by the overall user experience, still far better than any competitor's.

That's all part of Steve's legacy. He was never interested in what techies thought about his products. He was interested in creating products that real people wanted to use. That's why every time he announced a new Mac, iPod, iPhone, or iPad there were always plenty of techies ready to tell you what was wrong with it, but far more real people who couldn't wait to get their hands on one. I happily stand with the real people. I'll be ordering my 4S as soon as the lines die down and when I decide between carriers. Thanks, Steve.

The news makes me sad, although I feel bad having remorse for his death when there are so many countless others who die every day.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. :cry2:
