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.

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.

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.
