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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

Samsung&Google post poned their press conference for respect of SJ's death. You believe that? Seriously?


I don't recall bringing that up, but now you mention it, yes I do believe that actually. But I don't believe they did it out of respect for Steve. They did it because they didn't want a monumental event like his death to steal their thunder.

You talk of cynicism on Apple's part, while Samsung and Google blatantly rip off Apple's products, and then postpone their big launch day in a cynical PR move.

Same here. Couldn't help but cry again after reading some of the messages, which reminded me of my early times with Apple products, and especially those dark years in the mid-90s when to have a Mac was to be the object of scorn.

Man, how the tables have been turned by Steve after his comeback...he will be deeply missed by the good people of this world.


You need a doctor.
