My boss went to Facebook to confirm when I brought it up.... Where is this world going.

This took me by surprise though, although he has been sick for so long. He was and still is the greatest influence in technology. Tim Cook has quite the shoes to fill and hopefully he can live up to a fraction of what Steve jobs did in his years of work.

lmao I can't even say too soon

On a real note though this guy was legendary ... here's a quote from him I always liked

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

Well.. lot's of fun jokes.. but i m one of the ones that does't fell to funny to his dead...

Steve was a legend.. not only for geeks and apple fan boys... but for everyone that uses a pc.. if it wasn't for him, Woz was now building computers for fun and he and steve didn't went to change the world with personal computers. This guy didn't inventend but he made main stream the usb cdrom, the mouse, the GUI... it was all Steve idea and marketing.. no bill gates or mark zuckeberg...
this stuff changed our life as we know it...

also he was a mentor in the way to build products.. fuck the users WE know what is best.. not the users.. people only know that something is good when they have it and play with it... Also focus on making 1 good stuff, 1 awesome stuff, not 5 mediocre ones...

He was a lider imo it will never be someone like him in the near future, such a carismatic and important person in changeing the world..

My prayers go to his family ..

I dont see what the uproar is. The man help create a corporation that manufacturers shitty products that have 3 new versions a year and has created marketing propoganda making everyone think that they must have an ipod.

lolol shitty products?

Steve Jobs created with WOz the 1st personal computer.
Steve Jobs was one of the 1st of his generation of Enterperneurs.
Steve Jobs made the GUI (graphic user interface) mainstream
Steve Jobs made the mouse mainstream on computers , we could now point and click
Steve Jobs made the cdrom in our computers
Steve Jobs made the usb in our computers
Steve Jobs made the firewire in our computers
Steve Jobs was fired for the own company he created Apple.. but he didn't give up...
Steve Jobs created Pixar and made the 1st full Animated film, Toy story
Steve Jobs in the meanwihle why was fired of Apple also went to build another company NEXT that after some years was bought by Apple, and steve was again CEO.. also that software of NEXT is still the base of lot's of mac os and ios software.
Steve Jobs Created the Ipod
Steve jobs changes the music industry with Itunes, for the 1st time legal mp3 music.. and for only 0.99
Steve Jobs created the iPhone the most sold smartphone in the entire world
Steve Jobs created the iPad that sold almost 1 milion in the 1st day...

this is just what i know from the top of my head... but steve was way more than this the last iProducts...

i just think he's really a special guy.. and will be missed

yeah i look at america and i see lot's of people getting rich.. that's good no? i see that in this enterperneur shit maybe the true american dream is possible, u can have an idea.. and with the right people get money to invest in you and grow your own business , making stuff u love instead of working for corporate america in a 9 to 5 job where you will be miserable.

i didn't get the point on the Mexicans.. the thing i wanted to say.. was that apple wasn't a lucky shot from steve.. since he was fired and got up to make 2 awesome new company's Next and Pixar , (here you can compare to woz and see the diffidence on the success of each one had

u can't make friends because they are listening music? weren't they listening to walkmans before too? that's just a silly argument... as well as the one of the skynet :P

There isnt a person on the streets from the age range of 18-24 without their nose in a phone, iPad or iPod. Look up. Watch the world.

The point about him being fired and starting a new company is quite commonplace among those who triumph over adversity.

Yes, entrepreneurship is what makes this country great but there's a responsibility to mankind that exists, among the ethical anyway. Too much technology all at once is a bad thing.

Yea a good product does not require multiple versions or generations...



No. The exact model/company depends on your definition of PC.



And this is pertinent to???



Hipsters make shit mainstream to. Xerox had the first GUI.



Once again hipsters make shit mainstream too. Xerox had the first "mouse".



No AOL did.



You trolling? IIRC Apple wasn't even involved in its development and it took them a while to even start implementing it.



WTF is firewire? Must be quite revolutionary...



Your point being???



Pretty sure Pixar was an offshote of Lucasfilms.



You already said this



No. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kane_Kramer . He just called Kramers device an "iPod".



No it was not the first legal mp3 music. All they did was set the ridiculous .99 price framework that has become standard.



Which version? If you could the iPhone as a whole then maybe... but if you count from version to version you are wrong.



Lots of things sell millions on the first day (videogames come to mind...)



So basically you were gay for Steve Jobs?

As I recall USB was pushed by windows. Mac was pushing firewire as their standard early on. I recall CDROM's being on PCs as early as anything else. Mac being a dying company in the mid 1990's would have had trouble popularizing anything wouldnt it? I think all of Apples successes occured in the first term of steve jobs and the second... not the early and mid 90s

hey guys i get it, you don't like the man ..

just some facts, i was saying important stuff made by apple and steve , they didn't necessary invented all the stuff, but they made them being the first or pushing it mainstream and becoming standards. That was the genius of the guy, he wasn't all good.. he had same bad stuff in life and mistakes, some of it's business success are ideas from others but that steve polish and made it work... and had that leap of faith to invest in something that everyone was like... meh... it won't work..
well at least this is my interpretation of history.
Some of the stuff i said was a little from the top of my head from hundreds of stuff i read and watch over the years following my passion with computer and software. But i went to make some research to try make it context..

CD-ROM:
So you remember scsi port? in 1986 when Macintosh was running higher, and they had a version that included a SCSI that was the way to connect lot's of stuff like cd rom drives, and apple had one pretty good.. and it become main stream to storage that in lots of macintosh...
But i think i maybe a little wrong here.. .. not sure..

USB:
Well in 1998 jobs returns to apple, and launches the iMac that was the first computer to ship exlucsively with usb ports.. that made also a standard take shape..

GUI/MOUSE :
right both come from Xerox park.. but who put it first on everyones desk.. mainstream? yeah steve and of course other

PIXAR:
?? was from Lucas , then Steve made it what it his today

FIREWIRE:
...

ITUNES/IPOD:
...

IPHONE:
Smartphone is not the same as OS .. so iPhone is a smartphone, IOS(5) is a OS , Android is a OS, HTC (bla) is a Smartphone.. Counting all iPhone models.

Well like it s my interpretation of the history.. maybe u can read in a different way...

One last thing...



i m not gay :) sorry to disappoint you
