Rip SJ..

But I have to say, they put the fan's post online the day android comes up with icecream and a new super phone? Looks like they are using quite a dose of cinism here.

I'm sorry but this is not a very nice move, where did Apple's good taste ended?

Kudos to you, great Steve, we'll all miss you.


So you think Apple has an obligation to suspend their online memorial because some also-ran company is releasing a new knockoff phone? Unbelievable.

Seriously, we are talking about a billionaire ipod-maker here right? Not the Dalai Lama? This is consumption craze gone mad. People are starving to death everyday and nobody gives a ****, but when Steve Jobs dies the world stops. Give me a break. At least Bill Gates makes an effort to collect money for charities from other billionaires, unlike Steve Jobs. All he did was to make himself wealthy selling premium electronics.

Just read the article where Apple says they do not want to spend any of the 80 billion USD cash reserve on "silly things". I guess philantrophy counts as one of those silly things.

This off course, is said with respect for the one who died, but still -come on people.

I just watched the discovery channel iGenius on TV and I'm still sad. :(

It makes me want to buy an iMac G4 and G3 (I've never had a classic mac yet).

When I have kids someday I will be proud to introduce them to Apple products.

Rest in peace Steve.

If you're going to post something clever and inappropriate - at least get the spelling right. Doesn't help your cause if your post demonstrates a level of illiteracy. ;)

Dear Apple Corporation... hahahahaha


No bad taste or inappropriate stuff here. Great judgement! :rolleyes:

Gone is Steve but not his legacy. May we never forget the things he has already accomplished and the wonderful stepping stones he has laid for technology for the decades to come.

Rest in Peace.

To mean as little disrespect as possible, but I feel like it must be said.

Steve Jobs died an unfortunate death and was young. It is understandable some fans are in mourning.

However:

Most of us have no link to him. He was a motivational force behind many products on the marketplace today (none of which he invented, mind you, though he might've seen them elsewhere). But his death has ceased to be news. Aside from running Apple, most people aren't sure of what he did, and one must ask: Was Jobs arrogant enough to feel like we need to be reminded of his last days every day when we wake up?

If Jobs was arrogant enough to want this, he doesn't deserve it. If he wasn't arrogant enough to want this, move on. Seriously. You've paid your respects. But there are real problems in the world and, if you're a fan of his company, there are more days and more news ahead. Why dwell? Continuing to talk about it to excess can and will lead to a backlash. I've lost my patience reading about a guy who I've had no contact with that I view as a great salesman. Importantly, I believe most people know who he was because of his fame and wealth, not for what he did (again, charity?). And that's not to criticize. After two weeks, I don't see the reason to keep acting as if he's still dying.

He will be missed. Hopefully his vision at Apple continues on.

It's amazing to simply sit and watch these responses roll in on their website. Some truly moving words by ordinary people.

A simple one that really got to me:

I am so sad about Steve Jobs' death, he was my inspiration, someone who I wish I could be like.

EDIT: A few more favorites.

Steve, you are a fighter. You've fought hard all your life, but now it is time to rest.

Thank you, Steve, for your vision, imagination and dreams... you are a great example of what human potential is capable of.
