    Two words he left us to live by… “Think Different”

    Apple is nothing without Steve Jobs, hopefully Tim Cook lives up to his standards.

    I’m a proud owner of Apple products (I-phone, I-pad, I-mac)

    Anyway, Steve Jobs did better the world. May he RIP


    Jay Whitney Reply:

    @sangria, I’m really not seeing the significance of why that needs to be argued about. Pharell And Obama Are equally Great Human beings.

    R.I.P Steve Jobs #thanYouSteve founder and former CEO who invented and masterfully marketed gadgets that transformed everyday technology.


  19. Mac Attack

    Such profound, touching sentiments from so many people genuinely touched by Steves passing. Then, Kim Kardashian weighs in: “Wow Steve Jobs died! He was a brilliant man!”. Note the crude wording and innapropriate use of exclamation marks. This woman represents everything that is wrong with todays youth.


    Mr Xclusive Reply:

    @Mac Attack, yep smh


    Lisa Reply:

    @Mac Attack, I don’t think she even knew who he was.


  20. Aquierra

    Kim Kardashian has no idea how to use exclamation marks.


  21. Rogério

    Grande Homem que foi. Que Deus o tenha em um bom lugar.


  22. Rogério

    Steve Jobs a tecnologia sentirá sua falta. Descanse em Paz. Brasil


  23. Jay Whitney

    I’m proud to be an owner of 4macs, 1 iPod + an iPhone and to be blessed with knowing the existence of a brilliant man who will not be forgotten.


  24. Kayla

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs. He truly was a visionary and changed the face of technology forever.


    sutharsan Reply:

    @Kayla, Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it,” Obama said in a statement.

    Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesnt just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement

  27. atanda

    Goodbye Steve.u lived in the lives of over a billion people.u changed our world!


  28. music guru

    Let’s be real, more than half of these people didnt know who Steve jobs was until his passing, see what Google does!!!


    Lisa Reply:

    @music guru, I was thinking the same thing. You can see in the way that they wrote their “messages”. Compare Kim Kardashian’s to Pharrell. Need I say more? And that quote that Chamillionaire copy and pasted…

    Nevertheless, any human being’s passing is one to mourn. I never heard of him before his death, but no one deserves to die at the age of 56 due to some horrible disease. May he rest in peace.
