Recently, the mastermind behind the iPod, iPad, imac, and iPhone, Steve Jobs died. The cause of his death has not yet been revealed, but he has had a liver transplant and fought pancreatic cancer recently. His family says that he died peacefully.

RIP, Steve. You made Apple awesome.

Actually, Jonathon Ive was the chief designer behind all of those products...

Seriously though, what a loss! Jobs made a killer figurehead for a great company! It's a shame that he'll never see the completion of the new Apple campus to be built in Cupertino. Steve was a shrewd and honest business man.

Then whatever magazine I read that off of is wrong.

I bet there won't be an iPod Touch 5 for November now.

His name is on a LOT of Apple's patents, but he's not the only name. He was the face of Apple and he turned the company around, hence why he gets the credit.

I doubt Jobs' death will delay any of Apple's plans. He'd already handed his duties over to Cook, they have to keep going.

I personally, am not a fan of Apple. I think they're over-rated, over-hyped, etc.

I do however admire Steve Jobs for what he did. He had a vision, and he brought that vision to life. He started a company, lost the company, came back to the company when it was on it's death bed, and turned it into one of the biggest in the world.

We look back at history and remember people who had an impact on the world, conquerors, scientists, explorers ... Steve Jobs will be remembered as a man who brought about change in the modern world.

You should hand that last paragraph over to the New York Times as part of the orbituary.

And yeah, Apple is over-hyped, but they do make one cool laptop! (I use a Mac in case you didn't know).
