The other things that I have been thinking about is some of the great things him and Apple have come up with. We don't say "I am going to listen to my MP3 player." we say "I am going to listen to my iPod." and also the way they managed to get a laptop as thin as they did with the MacBook Air back in 2008. No other company (that I know of) as come up with a laptop as thin that is and as powerful since. Lets not forget the track pad on the Apple laptops that are made of glass. They are the best track pads I have ever used. I just hope that Apple keeps on making excellent products like that.

and again R.I.P Steve

I will miss that innovation that Steve Jobs brought, even if I don't agree with the exorbitant prices Apple charges for their hardware, and their commercials that basically lie to the customer.
Agree, the little Anti-Apple trolls will say anything, and none of them have a clue just how much of an impact Apple and Steve Jobs had not just in technology, but in society. Every single one of us has this hobby because of Steve Jobs. Without him, IBM would still be king, and CEO's would scoff at the idea of a personal workstation.

Unless your referring to jokes, in which my legitimate question was not even part of, i have no idea what your talking about.

I am not glad hes dead. I dont wish this kind of fate on anyone. I did not know Steve personally, so i cant judge him based on his day to day actions. All i know is his business model was not one i agreed with, but asking a serious question about how average people who arent CEO of Who Cares Inc may feel about this is not breaking rules. Congrats sir, you lost the internet

Its a shame that it had to be a painful disease that did it though. Nothing worse than slow, painful deaths.

True that. Also, having used the tiny 4x6cm trackpad on a Dell for ~3yrs, switching to the 11x8cm trackpad of a MacBook Pro was a massive breath of fresh of air.
