While I chose several decades ago to have a work life in MS programming, Mr. Jobs achievements are known throughout the world as trend setting accomplishments that would change the ways of many parts of the computerized world, and I salute him posthumously for what he did.

Talk about man who changed the world. Sad he had to go so young. Who knows what he would have done had he lived longer.

Things won't be quite the same without Steve Jobs...
Watching the movie "Ratatouille" will have an undertone of sadness.

Forgot about Pixar and all the wonderful movies like Toy Story, "To infinity and beyond!". Jobs was such a visionary.

Years ago, following the death of Jim Henderson, the creator of the Muppets, there was a cartoon in the local paper portraying all the Muppets, heads bowed and weeping. I remember several of my coworkers and I tearing up too upon seeing it. I still tear up when I think about that sweet depiction.

That one and the one when Mel Blanc passed away... the empty mic with the loony toons characters bowing their heads...both memorable and touching memorials.
