Well, this just turned out to be a very sh*tty day all around.
I grew up with Apple, starting with the Apple II, and owned just about one of every Mac since. My kids were raised on ‘em. And yeah, the kids turned out alright.

I wasn’t his biggest fan, but he didn’t deserve this.
Cancer has taken so many of us before our times; I hope some day we’ll be free of it.

Aw, that's the cute little Mac I used over 20 years ago when I was a graphic designer. Incredible machine when it was first introduced.

RIP Steve Jobs... :-(

Terribly sad news. He completely revolutionized the technology industry no less that *three* times. A true visionary. The very definition of genius - he knew what we needed 4 years before we did.

The world is a better place because of Steve Jobs and it’s worse off for his loss.

RIP, Mr. Jobs.

You have to admit that there is a time and a place for everything. And discussing whether someone is in Hell a few minutes after they died is in poor taste.

Many years ago, niteowl77 and I opted to buy a brand new MacPlus rather than a PC, and we've had a Mac of some sort or another in the house ever since. Steve Jobs' products have served this family well.

RIP, Mr. Jobs.

Mr. niteowl77

Rest in peace mr. Jobs. Ya done good while on this mortal coil.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future,” he told Stanford University graduates during a commencement speech in 2005. “You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
