So very sad. The guy was truly a genius and a brilliant businessman. Had been so sick for a long time. RIP.

He delivered revolutionary products to the world for the past 25 years. The original Macinthosh made computing easier for more people. The iPod completely changed the way we all listen to music. The iPhone made the cell phone more like a small computer and the iPad has again revolutionized personal computing.

It must have been amusing, for him to introduce a product then sit back and watch the rest of the industry scramble to develop their version of the very same thing.

And yet he was the one who joked that he stole others' ideas and improved on them.
I just read a lengthy rundown on his life. Amazing man.

I heard the Thomas Edison comparison this morning BT and thought how appropriate that was.

I wonder if we all would still be typing from a C: on a black MS-DOS screen if it hadn't been for Jobs and crew at Apple.
