A horrible news to begin the day with. The world and Apple will never be the same again. If it was Apple, it was always Steve Jobs. The tech. world has lost one of the most iconic guys today. The response from all sectors to this news has been overwhelming. Even Amazon has put up an obituary on their home page. May Steve R.I.P. I guess he was destined to see the 4S launch before bidding farewell.

Steve Jobs' life summed up. What a man, what a visionary!

There are three apples changed the world,
  1. The one Eve ate
  2. The one fell on Newtons head
  3. The one Steve Jobs made
You will be missed Sir.

What a sad beginning to the day. :-(

I am a huge fan of Apple and it's products like millions across the world. I have 3 iPods and iPhone 3Gs. I have used 5 different handsets from 5 different companies before getting iPhone and IMHO iPhone has the best user interface and the best touch. I agree that interacting with Apple products through iTunes can get a bit irritating but that's ok.

The sheer feeling of richness, super class aesthetics, intuitiveness that you get while using Apple products is hard to find with other products (strictly my opinion).

Jobs is no less than any scientist. Jobs has close to 400 patents on his name. Has lots of 'First Time' on his name.

I salute to his sheer brilliance and extra- ordinary vision.

I wasn't an Apple fan, in fact i was against some of the business policies of Apple. That was before i used any Apple product.
Then i used iPod, iPod touch and Mac mini. My next device could well be a Macbook or iPad.

I will always be a fan of his minimalist approach and attention to detail, which can be felt even in Mac/iOS developer documentation.

Steve, you will be missed. :(

Here's an interesting story from G+ product head Vic

It's interesting how Mr. Jobs touched the lives of so many people. Though I ain't a techie, I'm hooked to Job's philosophy of understanding what humans want. When the whole corporate world was strict on 'classical' dress code, it was he who created the culture of 'cool' with his iConic jeans and turtle neck Tee. Not to miss the revolution he brought in presentation of the product. Simplicity it is.

So cruel is the fate, many that deserve to better the human lives have been nipped in the bud. I do agree that Steve will stand tall amongst great innovators of all time and I am glad to have been touched by this gentleman. RIP

@Scorcher a lovely graphic. @SilentEngine; I also may not agree with some of Apple's business policies, esp. a closed system.

Let is however accept Jobs was a visionary, and a creator. A Genius in the mould of Edison and Ford. I am not sure whether he can be ranked with da Vinci, but will run him close. May his soul rest in peace.

RIP Steve Jobs. ipod, iphone and the like are just devices, albeit great ones. I will remember you more for creating Pixar and the magical moments you gave us, like watching Finding Nemo with my kid for the first time.

I have never owned any Apple product. But from the time I heard of computers, have been awed by the word Apple(TM) and Mac(TM). Being the inveterate cynic that I am, always attributed the success of Apple products to big specs - they introduced SCSI to the desktop when it was an option on wintel servers.

I was simply awed when I finally saw a Mac with its covers off at TIFR - the innards of the wintel PC I had seen till then was more like a crow's nest!!! The beauty of clean and simple hardware design was the hallmark of what Apple did to the other free product they adopted and extended - OSX, which was based on *BSD. The GUI was simply mind blowing, when compared to the GUI of the product they sourced from.

But people are always judged by the institutions they leave behind. And I should feel that Jobs got even that right. He stepped down, just in time, and has held the hands of the corporate he founded.

1997 he joined back Apple (after Apple bought NeXT) as CEO.
Changed it's advertising agency (BBDO > Chiat Day) and released Think Different campaign.

It was his vision then and his vision now for the team.

I seriously hope/wish Apple to maintain and nurture Steve's vision for the future..

Steve Jobs was a true visionary. The Stanford Commencement Speech in 2005 was among his best speeches. And as someone said, no more waiting till midnight for his key note speeches as well. An enigmatic personality.

Must watch Steve Jobs D8 interview



Also who can forget the Steve Jobs and Bill Gates D8 interview together.
