I didn't know Jobs, nor would my opinion on these matters contribute much, if any, significance on such matters. But, for how much it hurts for me to say such, credit is given where credit is due.

Documentaries, concerning that of the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley, portrayed Jobs as some over zealous company leader who overworked his employees, blamed Windows for their lack of success in the PC market, and a man deeply in love with his wife and children. But I cannot quite comment, with great accuracy, on how he lived his life, nor who he actually was.

Apple, as a whole, was, and still is, a company that uses marketing techniques to pave delusion in the market concerning quality components. Consumers have been, for many years, cheated from their products or cheated in some means of not getting a product that is worth the price in terms of quality. And although it does not occur that much in their higher quality products, such as the iPhone and the iPad, it saddens me that people have been cheated by such a company for so many years.

I don't paint Jobs as this giant that made personal computers, or technology for those matters, what it is today, but you cannot deny he has contributed positively in our technological day and age. There has been some things he's done right, some wrong, but it doesn't change the fact that he was a significant influence on our PC/technology world today. I give my thanks for his positive contribution and hope the best for him in what ever happens afterwards. I don't think, for whatever reason, he is going to be forgotten.

I'd also like to say that I've gained some inspiration from Apple and have been influenced greatly on my childhood from their products. My elementary to junior high years were based in a school that consisted of ONLY macintosh computers. I was always excited for computer class and learned many things, such as word/excel processing to the way I type on a keyboard today. I've owned and used a decent amount of their products in which have contributed to my life in a positive fashion. I'd also like to note that some of my inspirational teachers were die-hard Apple loving individuals. And, as one of the OCN members have posted, I've gathered some influence from their "Think Different" campaign, regardless that Apple has infringed on others' patents and stole others' ideas. Their "Think Different" slogan still makes a point and is inspirational.


Rest in piece Jobs. Thank you for the positive influences you have contributed in my life.

Not a big fan of apple or their deceiving marketing strategies but respect must be given for pushing us and his competition into a new age.

It's a sad event, but no need to get ridiculous about it.

Apple is a great re-packager of outside ideas and technologies and they market them incredibly effectively. To start saying that we wouldn't have the things we do today without them or Steve Jobs is just absurd.

Do you think we wouldn't be flying today without the Wright Brothers? That we would never have gotten a telephone type device without Graham Bell? That people still wouldn't realize why things fall down without Newton?

This is really getting insane.

I'd say the BEST thing he's done for technology is to help make average people more willing to spend more of their income on it on a per year basis. With his help, the spending trends that have been established allow more companies to develop better and more powerful products because people are likely to shell out the $$$ for them.

A genius has passed. I will always remember him for his contribution to the animation industry. And if it wasn't for apple most of the other companies wouldn't have had such a good competitor.
Definitely not an apple fanboy but deeply saddened
Rest in peace.
