If you're an Apple user or love to hate em, you still have to respect the sheer amount that this man has accomplished in his life. Respect and RIP.

His legacy extends beyond Apple. He transformed the computer, music, phone, and marketing world, amongst other things. So much of what we do today (and very likely what you're doing right now at this exact moment), whether you're a Mac or a PC man/woman, was because of Steve Jobs. A true historical figure, visionary, and trend setter. Rest in peace.

Computers, music, phones... not to forget he also influenced the movie world with his backing of Pixar when they were struggling to make their first move, Toy Story.

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
How sad it is to read about Steve Job's death. His battle with cancer was public. How brave it was for him to allow his battle with cancer to be so public! I sincerely hope that it served as inspiration and hope to others also battling cancer. I sincerely hope that he met death in comfort, surrounded by those he loved and with dignity. Rest in Peace, Mr. Jobs. You will be missed.

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
I earn a living as an independent producer because the innovative vision of Steve Jobs made it possible to edit video on a computer.

Thanks, Steve.

Never got to meet you personally, but I did get a chance to see you deliver a couple of presentations at the MacWorld Expo. Truly an inspiration to us all.

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
Let us not forget that Jobs was a true job creator.

He leaves behind a legacy of 49,000 inspired Team members.

We need so many more like this man - a rare breed.

Heath McKnight October 6th, 2011 09:15 AM

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
Yes he was; from two employees -- he and The Woz -- to 49,000!

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
Out to dinner tonight after a toast to Steve Jobs a friend remarked, his legacy will be, sometime in the future following an important award, maybe even a Nobel Prize, the young recipient will conclude with ..

'My inspiration was Steve Jobs'

We all agreed that we'll see that a number of times, maybe even said by one of his sons.

Re: RIP Steve Jobs
It's hard to believe we're coming up to the first anniversary of his passing.

Here's an interesting bit of info. Does anyone know what the Apple logo stands for? That's the apple with the bite taken out of it?

I'm a fan of the German Enigma cypher machine used in WW2 .. the amazing stories of its use, the allies capture and decoding of enemy war messages, how Ian Fleming (James Bond author) got the ideas for his books, and the English manor house Bletchley Park, where the codes were broken.

How the UK chiefs recruited their code breakers and kept the whole thing a total secret from the enemy for the duration of the war.
(I'm right into it, even bought a form of the Enigma encoder on a visit to Bletchley Park last year, so I can send messages and teach my young grandkids.)

One of the WW2 foremost code breakers was Alan Turing, acknowledged in many quarters as the father of the modern computer.
Google him if you're interested.

At present, I'm reading a book titled 'Ian Fleming's Commandos', the stories how Fleming organised his squad to grab enemy intel, in the first few hours
of a surprise raid.

On page 63, there's a note saying that in 1969, British Prime minister Gordon Brown apologised for Alan Turing's 'utterly unfair' treatment by the authorities after the war. The tragic result was, in 1954, Turing killed himself by eating an apple dipped in cynanide.

In the book Zeros and Ones, Sadie Plant says, this is for ever remembered in the bitten fruit logo of Apple.

Interesting stuff. I like to think Steve Jobs was paying homage to another genius from an earlier age.
