It's not that he was kind or philanthropic, because he really wasn't; it's not that he was a technological genius, because he was behind the curve except for user interaction, which was of course more important than those other factors; it's that he decided to do something and became truly exceptional at it in a way very few people do. It can happen with a political figure, or a cook, or an inventor, or a mogul, or a mother. In this case, it was that intangible thing that binds us to our tools.

The man was unique, no doubt. Whether you loved or hated him, no one was like him. Apple is what it is because of his uniqueness. That magic, for lack of a better word, is gone from the world now.
I am eagerly awaiting his biography. Sadly, it will be great, because if you read between the lines, Jobs knew he was gonna be dead before the book came out. He presumably wanted the real truth about himself to be laid out - good and bad. This makes me love the man even more. So in this light, the book will be everything we ever could have asked for from such a private man.
Find the YouTube video of iJustine's breakdown at hearing news of Steve's passing. I feel for her, and understand.
We all do.

Rest In Peace Steve xo
This man is truly someone who I seriously thought would be the man to futurize the world! He deffinetly gave it a head start, I'm hoping the company left behind will continue in making cutting edge products and never seen before perks. It's really sad to know he is no longer with us. Very sad day and my best wishes go out to his family and close friends.

No one man has done as much as Steve Jobs has when it comes to the tech industry. Every piece of tech we use today has been influenced by Steve Jobs; from cellphones to TVs. This man literally touched each and everyone one of us some way and somehow. Steve Jobs was a true genius but above all else he was our hero.
You did well Steve, you did well. take the rest you deserve. you fought hard to the end and refused to be the man others wanted you to be.
RIP my hero. :,)

Highly Missed Steve Jobs
I have been knowing of Steve through Apple since 1985. It was an honor to be a fan of somebody who has literally changed the world. I remember I was in art class, and I really tried to get a mac it wasn't happening, but when I went into the military and started in college, and I saw Hackers. I had to have a mac, and I havent really looked back since. He created so many devices. He gave me more than my imagination could have known to want, and I will forever be grateful.

Go to YouTube and look up Steve jobs tribute salt and you'll find a tribute to him of a portrait being made. It's amazing. This is completely unexpected. He was so young to die. It was one of my dreams to get to meet him and shake his hand. Maybe I will be able to one day in a better place.. Rest in peace Steve. We'll all miss you

It has hit me harder the last few days than the day he actually died. Some of the reasons are selfish (like who will make sure Apple keeps the quality? Can anyone be trusted to take his place in the company?) and some had to do with his kids and friends not having him around ever again. My dad died of cancer when he was 54 and the years since have been emptier without him. So much of my life he never got to see like his grandchildren or the world of technology (he loved technology) evolve into what it has. I think about Steve's kids and how they will have that same hole in their life and it just kills me.
At least I got to meet Steve and shake his hand. I will cherish that my whole life.
