Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, is dead.
Today, millions of iMacs, iPods, iPhones, and iPads flicker in mourning.
"Although it cannot be foretold that he will never be surpassed in the future, it is indeed the case that he was unparalleled in history."

I only know that Steve Jobs is affiliated with Apple too. I didn't actually know he was the founder. I hear so much about him from the media and acquaintances that he become a small part of my conversational life.
I even only recently found out what the man looked like. :/ Still what a shame.
I like me.
Never heard of the guy before and never into his invention but gotta admit that he was a legend.
It was a sad day for the city: quarry shooting in the morning and Jobs passing away in the afternoon. May he RIP.
Since we are on Steve Jobs, may I ask your perception of his personality? Is he more an introvert/extrovert?
As news stations throughout the world acknowledged, Steve Jobs put a dent in the universe.
Which puts him in the same league as the legendary warrior who turned the universe upside down.

Unfortunately, killing people is sometimes an absolute necessity. Without killing the villains, the whole world would suffer. Wuxia heroes are world saviors while Steve Jobs was a great man that made society a better place. Ken, imagine what your life is gonna be like if the world is ruled by Hitler.Steve Jobs *made* stuff, rather than destroyed it...and millions of people put that stuff to good use.

I don't use any Apple products so I don't really care. I rolled my eyes at all the sentimentality when he died. Thousands are dying in impoverished countries and warzones, no one gives a crap, and one guy dies, and all those Jobs fanboys and fangirls were acting like Jesus got crucified again. (In fact, there's a picture that basically makes that point circulating around Facebook and I put it on my wall proudly.)
Jobs was an ******* who was difficult to get along with and made life a living hell for his employees.
I would be sad if Bill Gates died because he actually tries to do something useful with his billions through charity, but I just shrugged when Jobs dropped.
I will laugh my *** off when Kim JI croaks.
The fact that I don't like Jobs has nothing to do with his political views. It's about what he did as a person who could have done something with his money instead of just using it to make more money.
And in any case, Jobs said that he had Democratic leanings... so your suggestion that I don't like him is because he is a "conservative" is well... misguided... let's put it politely.
Please respond quickly, I want to put my order in ASAP.
The guy worked hard to earn money. Why should he give them away? If people want to get ahead then they should work hard and live responsibly. They should not just sit there and waiting for and handout from hard working guys like Steve Jobs.It's about what he did as a person who could have done something with his money instead of just using it to make more money.
