He must have been one talented guy to be founder and CEO of Apple. RIP.

Not only was he brilliant, but he was one heck of a fighter. Not many can keep pancreatic cancer at bay for so long. RIP.

And OJ is still alive...

Always pisses me off when talented people leave too early and the unforgivable outstay their welcome.

I got so sad looking at that.

Yeah, I'm a Mac user and have always been so.

There are very few people who can honestly say that they transformed the world. Steve Jobs revolutionized computing and no matter what OS or platform you use, he was one of the prime movers that put home computers within reach of everyone.

RIP.

I feel for his family and I hope the find peace in the days ahead.

/Rant on

I am not an apple Phanboi so I am a bit confused over all of this. He led a company that sent its jobs overseas to make cheap electronics for next to nothing. He IMHO didn't make anything to better the Human race. He was a good businessman, he was a Bill Gates with a better PR shtick. GOD ALMIGHTY I know some liberals are crying over a man that exploited labor in China and contributed to a culture that they think is nothing but consumer driven. I know I am going to get blasted for this but what the hell.

Again I think he was great businessman and made a fortune but I am just shocked that so many liberals are in a state of mourning.


/Rant off


Again I hope his family finds peace and I hope he was right with the Lord.

Yesterday was a great day for the Obama administration, liberals, and the unwashed radicals who are "occupying" city streets to call for the overthrow of capitalism. Because Apple founder Steve Jobs died - and if we are to believe Barack Obama's rhetoric, that must be a good thing.

After all, Jobs had accrued a fortune worth billions...meaning he must have stolen that money from the working class proletariat. He was surely not paying his "fair share" in taxes (after all, according to the president, no millionaire or billionaire is). And he was famous (or infamous) for leading in a personal way, not governing by committee, and insisting on excellence - all of which are anathema to the Left.

So the world in general, and Obama's America in particular, will be better off without him - right?

Of course not.

Steve Jobs earned his money by developing products that hadn't previously existed. He didn't steal market share from others...he created it by making innovative products for which there was new demand. And in the course of making a profit, he created more jobs (both domestically and overseas) than Obama could ever dream of.

And while amassing his evil, money-hoarding fortune he also revolutionized computing, telecommunications, and the entertainment business. He empowered innumerable people to accomplish things which would have otherwise been impossible.

In the next few days, Steve Jobs will be widely eulogized...but Hope n' Change doesn't think that the loss of this one man, however great, is the real tragedy. Rather, it is that this nation has changed so radically that inventors, innovators, and job creators like Steve Jobs are now reviled and attacked rather than celebrated.

Which is something that the Obama-inspired "Occupy Wall Street" protestors might want to think about...when they're not listening to their iPods.

What is really sad, is that if the protesters on Wall St., had their way, we would never have had Steve Jobs, or his inventions.

RIP, you were a brilliant man.

Windows/Droid 4 lyfe! Had to get that out there. . .

But people at Microsoft wept when they found out Jobs died. That's RESPECT right there.
