Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

The news has just broken that Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple, died today from his battle with pancreatic cancer. It's common knowledge that he was not in the best of health, but I think his sudden death caught many by surprise.

Doc and all,

As I just posted; I was checking my e-mail when I saw the announcement.

I am wondering how this will affect Apple as a whole?

Steven

In the short term, my suspicion is that Apple's stock will take a hit. However, in the long term, Apple will be just as strong as always -- Apple is, and always has been, more than just Jobs, and as time goes on all the investors and market analysts will realize that. There are many talented designers and engineers at Apple, and innovation will continue.

Doc and All,

CNN is currently doing Breaking News coverage and in the last 15 minutes has been doing a retrospective of Steve and Apple.

Re: Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

He surely showed many people out there how to stick to own dreams and visions - even in times of heavy contradiction and difficult economical situations. He definitely was a very inspiring and inspired man leading computer usage to something higher than just clicking around. Offering the basis for easy and creative usage of their (Apple's) later products was his invention. He might not have been an "easy chap" to everyone but this is what you will have to pay if your own vision shall become truth one day. And he tried to make it come true up to his very last day. This is what I am respecting the most: he had an aim he walked up to and did not give up half the way.

Thank You, Mr. Jobs!

Thanks for all you've done, Steve.

(This wasn't the news I wanted to wake up to today.)

Steve Jobs (and friend Wozniak)

Started out in a garage...

Ended up in Fortune 500...

And he/they did it on THEIR OWN TERMS!

Steve Jobs went out the way he did everything
in his life...ON HIS OWN TERMS!

The last of the REAL "mavericks"!

R.I.P.

You will NOT be forgotten!
