    Sad. Too young. While most assuredly he did live a full life, he had to fight pancreatic cancer for 7+ years.

    But what a record of accomplishment. And I love this quote:
    Here's a link to the transcript and another to the video of that commencement address.

    No disputing he was one of the more visionary people of our age.

    RIP.

    Only time will tell, but I would not be surprised to see him mentioned in future History lessons alongside the likes of Eli Whitney, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and the like.

    Truly an amazing human being.

    Yep, they were just ranking him with some immortal people on the news.

    Really a sad day.

    I'm really bummed.

    With all the stuff we have to deal with these days, with politics a mess, and the economy a mess, he was one person who actually deep down really cared about the product.

    Just read an article recently where he was concerned about one color in an icon before a big launch. The guy was a true genius and perfectionist.

    He certainly was, though Wozniak was the engineering genius. It took both of their geniuses in the early days.

    What I liked about him was he didn't do focus groups. He said that people didn't know what they wanted, and he was able to come up with products they didn't know they wanted.

    I'm certainly going to read the Isaacson biography.

    is the webpage Apple has set up for now, with a link to send in any remembrance, tribute, etc.

    Some friends and I called him St. Steve, in part to goad a PC cousin of my friend, but there was- and is- a huge dollop of reverence in that whimsical reference.

    probably the reason Pixar survived the lean years. In addition to his AAPL wealth he's also the biggest DIS shareholder. RIP

    Pixar would have never gotten started if Jobs hadn't bought the Graphics Group from LucasFilm.
