It's a sad day. He will be missed. He really did both innovate and lead a lot of innovation in the tech industry.
RIP Steve Jobs, Thank you

RIP Steve Jobs. Some of us in the PC world may not have always agreed with you but no one in the world can deny your sheer genius, brilliance, and innovation. We truly have lost one of the greatest technical leaders of our time.
Definitely a man who has permanently etched his name into computer history... whether you agreed with his principles or not, his influence has brought a number of important technologies to the mainstream better than anyone else could. It is a sad thing to see someone like this go because he was in no way over the hill in talent and potential and seemly had so much more to offer had his physical health allowed it. We can only hope that he has had the opportunity to build the infrastructure at Apple to allow them to continue to fulfill the dream he had for the company.
I'm in shock. I didn't expect it this soon. RIP Steve Jobs.
Apple.com homepage really a sight to see. A very sad sight.
RIP Steve. Will really miss you and all your contributions to humanity.
Every death comes too fast, but 56, that is so sad.
Everywhere I go, I'm witnessing a genuine sense of loss from everyone commenting. I'm truly glad this is happening in serene manner. And it speaks wonders for the achievements of this man that in this moment we all end up acknowledging our respect for him.
Even though this may bring down eyes upon me, I will say it. Everyone has a right to an opinion, after all.
Good riddance, the world is finally rid of that idiot.
Though he may have invented the touch interface as we know today, he's also the source of all the Evil™ of the dreaded Apple ecosystem, which others seek to duplicate. The world would have been better off without him.
Rest In Peace, Steve Jobs...
I wonder, since he was a business-man, why didn't he realise that public donations would have an enormous positive impact to his reputation, extending to the corporation with much more clients!...
