Well, it's rather brutal here. Right now we are advising all our clients to put everything they've got into canned food and shotguns.
Probably the shock of the iPhone 4s. Joking aside, this is probably going to upset millions of Apple fan boys and could see the fall of the Apple empire. Then again, the release of the iPhone 4s will probably see to that. Android may not have as many apps but the phones are sure a hell of a lot better these days.
Still, it's sad to see anyone pass away. R.I.P. Steve Jobs :crying:
I'd be hoping that with him gone, Apple will soon collapse and disapper, but it's too late for that. They already fucked up the entire phone industry. Can't buy a goddamn decent midrange phone now, only either $10 cant-do-crap phones, or iphone lookalikes with touchscreens everywhere.
Interested to see where the company goes. Sucks that he died so young -- 56 by my count. His successor has a huge shoes to fill. I think the name recognition can survive without him, but despite the fact that the 4S might actually be a worthy upgrade (nobody fucking knows yet) a 5 with a new design and features that admittedly might not mean shit would have been better, clearly.
Truly shocking news. R.I.P Steve. You will be missed.
Not a surprise by any stretch but it still sucks. I too am curious to see how Apple fares in the meantime
Saw a photo of him supposedly taken after he left the company... was nothing but a walking skeleton...
I thought this would happen before the year was over. A power hungry person like Jobs doesn't retire unless the end is nigh. Can't say I was a big fan of him seeing how I don't like his personality, but he did help shape the industry to some degree. R.I.P.
Never liked Steve Jobs, He was rude to college interns I've been told and his one contribution while at Atari was breakout which while he took all the credit it was the Woz who did all the work.
Still to those that saw him as a friend and Collgue and not the Asshole (or as I called him iDouche) it is still a sad day. FOR THEM
For me whatever.
Still quite a week for me Steve Jobs dies, Anthony Bourdain acknowledged me on Twitter and I saw BILL FUCKING COSBY SPEAK!
Om Mani Padme Hum
Come on, people... even if you don't like him or his products, he was still a human being and now he's dead. Show some respect.
I can't believe that he is dead, for me it was one of the more visionary people of all, without Steve, Im sure that we are not speaking of anything in this page.
:mario:Great New, Beta/Alpha/Preview/Review/Build Collector.:luigi:
This has been really creepy for me. I was listening to certain 60's songs that reminded me of the whole LSD thing and I instantly thought of Jobs and how he must have lived a life that anyone would envy, and that if he were to die he'd still have done more than most of us to shape the world according to his opinions. This was about noon.
Still, I have a feeling that he might have died sooner than they've announced, but didn't want this bad news to affect the stock price and the presentation of the new iPhone. A bit romantic, a bit cynical but a great loss nevertheless, I wonder how Apple will be without his leadership.
Rest in peace Steve, I never could afford most of your products.
You can ask for any old woman
You can ask for an army of ants
You can ask for a pillar of poison
You can ask for sheep and shavers
And you can die for
Be careful what you wish for
It is sad that Steve Jobs is dead, but the TV news reports make it sound like Jesus has died.
What really is a surprise is that he could put up with cancer for so long, but he clearly saw it coming and took the steps he took by resigning Apple and so on.
It is sad to hear, but that's how life is.
Hope he had time to say goodbye to his wife and children.
Sad news..... :(
