This is sad, and I guess explains his resignation. He was a man who brought us revolutionary technology and quite frankly, he will be missed.

I think his biggest contribution may just be the Iphone. It changed cell phones for ever. They are not just phones anymore... More like a computer in your pocket.


Not much else I can really say. We lost an Icon of the late 20th and early 21st century. A visionary and incredible mind. Such a shame.

Just wont be the same with out him. Wonder what Bill gates has to say.

May Steve Rest In Peace. He was instrumental in shaping a good portion of our future....

It's kind of like losing one of the Beatles for me.

That is an interesting thought. In many ways, Steve Jobs was to telecommunications and computers, what the Beatles were to music.

I don't know that people will stand out side his house and sing songs, like they did with John. But this man... Had a huge impact in his industry.

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were sort of the John and Paul of their respective industry. Now with Bill retired and Steve dead due to cancer...

I can't help but wonder.... Will things ever be as good as they were? Let's face it.. Music has gone down hill since the Beatles broke up...

With Steve dead and Bill retired and out of the game, who knows...

Think about it though. I mean, yeah, maybe not that big. But The beatles were revolutionary for music. Steve was revolutionary for the telecommunications and computer industries.

I can see how people make the connection.

I don't understand how people are still dying from cancer in the year 2011 !!!!


He had all the money in the world and he still couldn't beat it. Same with Farrah Faucet.

We're (the medical and pharmaceutical) doing something wrong here folks!
Very sad. He'll be remembered and respected for years.... that's for sure!

Wow that would explain his resignation. Yeah man he was a huge player in the tech world. He will be missed. Without him, I doubt we would've had most of the stuff we have now. Sure I will admit I don't exactly like Apple, but I do like his accomplishments. RIP Steve.

Kind of off topic, but I do remember seeing an article about these testings taking place in which they took a virus that is in 80% of people and harmless to us, but they tweaked it some how and in all cases completely eradicated breast cancer in each person they tested it on, in about 7 days.

I think there was mention of cervical cancer as well. So who knows, maybe we will have a big break through soon.

It is a shame that he was not able to fight off his cancer.

Yeah, that was my thinking. I had heard before that he had Pancreatic cancer, but for some reason, I never tied that into his resignation.

I had just figured, like Bill, who retired before him, maybe he was just getting older and wanted to allow the next generation to step up and take over.

I guess, he resigned due to his cancer getting worse?

That is sad.

I am the same way. Not a big fan of apple.... Especially the prices.... But what he did to the computer and telecommunications and even music industry ( Itunes, ipods etc..) cannot go unnoticed.

An icon is an icon. There aren't too many individuals in the ground-breaking and world changing field anymore.

Why the eye roll?

I agree.
Jobs was to computers as Lennon was to the Beatles.

I think this helps prove that just because you got money
does not mean you can buy some special tin foil hat medicine....

Cancer = the great equalizer

It doesn't care how much money you make, it will kill the rich and poor blindly.

I eye rolled because in 10 years no one is going to remember Steve Jobs.

Thats not true, I think most of US will...

I understand the eye roll, don't really agree with that reasoning ...

Hey Domo, I noticed you have not really said much about Steve Jobs being dead.

Since that is what this thread is about. What do you think? What are your thoughts on this man and him dying of Cancer?
