Steve Jobs has Died.

Pretty tough post to even begin to write.  I guess, the first thing that comes to mind is – we just lost an icon.  A man that helped push the entire tech world forward for decades has passed away at the age of 56. Steve Jobs, you sir, will be missed.

Feel free to drop as many kind words in the comments as you would like.

    First I would like to say that I don’t care for Apples products. Now let that sink in for a minute, then set it aside. Steve Jobs was a genius, whether anyone likes it or not. That man did more in his 56 years than most will do in a lifetime. Steve Jobs took a leather chair and a table and damn near turned it into a marketing trademark. How many others can say that? Say what you will about his company, but he managed to turn rhe tech world on its ear and made Apple one of the most profitable tech companies in US history. That in itself deserves respect in its own right whether you are an Apple fan or not. Before Steve Jobs was Apple, he was someones father, son, husband, brother, and most importantly, a human being. So let us stop with the sickening, disrespectful comments, and pretend for a second, that he could have been someone in YOUR family, or a friend that YOU cared about. Please do something to show that we have at least become a little more civilized as the human race. Okay i’m off the damn soap box now.

  • The man, who is hard working, innovative, and tech pioneer of our modern technology and the one who changes the world of industry, is the best man who can never forget by most people. Wish that apple development would still continue even he is dead already.

  • Dynobyte

    May Steve Jobs rest in peace, knowing that he has helped to change the world. People buy  common things like an ipone just any old day…. do tell me, where do i buy another Steve Jobs?

  • Igstone2

    I dont understand why there is so much hate toasted this man. He was a technological genius who had a vision and accomplished it. He let nothing hold him back. That is something to respect. The man is DEAD for heaven’s sake. Show some respect and start acting like adults because it’s comments like the previous ones that give the android community a bad name. RIP Steve, may your legacy live on.

  • rhivz

    legendary man he is.. I hardly know this man but watching his interviews and other videos, knowing his accomplishments and how he contributed much to  technology I feel so sad for his death. sure will be missed for the generations to come. rest in peace Steve. God has you in His keeping.

  • Nicholas Benson

    During a time like this, I can only label myself not so much an android fanboy (though I am) but more so a smart phone fan boy.  I love smart phones, and thank you Mr. Jobs for your work.  Joins hands with smartphone fanboys of all stripes and colors, even the “enemy”

  • R.I.P Steve ! You will be missed. Only the Angels can see the true future iPhone 5

    He died a litigator NOT an innovator. THAT is what is sad.

    In all honesty, Steve Jobs was a great man. May God be with you.
    As the death the of Steve Jobs has occurred, so will the fall of Apple.

    Ok, dont beat me up for being insensitive, but I heard this one, and it is rather funny…..They say right before you die, your life flashes before your eyes. Of course this couldnt be true for Steve Jobs, because Apple doesn’t support Flash.

  • Sporty

    I knew the second that the iPhone was shown that it would be the end of regular phones and a new era to watch unfold. I KNEW it. Why? Because of Steve Jobs. The man wasn’t just part of history,but he helped write history. It’s a sad day for innovations in this Country;something we need more of desperately. We cannot afford to lose men like Jobs. Men who saw the future and made it happen…he’ll be sorely missed…

  • Anonymous

    we may not liked his company, nor his products, but we cannot say anything bad about the man, the innovator. Steve Jobs was a great man, and the technology world would not be where it is today without him. RIP Steve

  • Finger

    It’s terrible that a person has died from an awful illness, but I never drank the Steve Jobs cool-aid and I’m not going to start now just because he died. Whether or not he’s actually responsible for the “innovations” he’s taken credit for, he was still a monopolistic, anti-competitive, authoritarian, CEO. I am constantly amazed at how Apple’s marketing has been so successful in convincing people he was some sort of visionary rebel.

  • Legoturte92

    He was one of the greatest
    innovators of our times. Not trying to sound like an ass, but everyone
    should take a moment to thank him for all of the great things he has
    given us. The smartphone era he helped create. The main igniter of the
    tablet age. The man who put his style of computer in a lot of our hands.
    The iconic movies Pixar put out. And many many more. He was a true
    icon, and will surely be missed.

  • Apple and Android aside…..Steve Jobs…you my friend are a legend…..R.I.P

    I don’t see that Droidlife said drop as many hateful words as you can
    “Feel free to drop as many kind words in the comments as you would like.”
    Disturbing how people can be so mean. 

    • Not mean, truthful. I said he was a great visionary. I won’t let that however, cloud who he was as a person.

      • Guest

        You personally knew him? You interacted with him, worked with him? Or are you feeding into what others have said about him? Personally, he never did anything to me so I won’t bad mouth him. I also didn’t know him so I won’t bad mouth him either. I see that another person lost their battle with a horribly painful disease. 

  • Great visionary, not so great of a man. Ripped off Wozniak for $2,150 in his first dealing with him and takes credit for inventing the mouse, it was Doug Engelbart.

    • misslee

      And in the interview with Good Morning America this morning, Wozniak had nothing bad to say about the man and in fact praised him. If he really thought so poorly of Jobs, he didn’t have to do the interview. He chose to so props to him. He knew him personally and had wonderful things to say about him, which is more than I can say for people on threads that didn’t personally know Jobs. 

      • No, maybe he did not want the backlash for calling the ‘icon’ out. Jobs admits to stiffing Wozniak, who did all the work and was the reason Atari paid Jobs a 5K bonus for shrinking the circuit board for the game Breakout. He deserves a lot of the credit.

  • Droidkin

    No man pursued his vision with more passion than Steve  Jobs. The influence of that passion will be missed. Deepest regrets to his family and friends.

    Its fair to say that without Steve Jobs none of us would be here the way we are right now.

    • Yes, without Apple Android would be a pile of garbage or non-existent . We need competing companies to push each other.

    We (Android users) may not prefer his products but without this man we wouldn’t be where we are today. He helped revolutionize the smart phone world, he and Steve Wozniak delivered the FIRST personal computer he also gave us the MP3 player. RIP Steve.

    You changed the world, man! Consider it ding’d.  We’ll miss you. Rest in peace.

  • Fattie McDoogles

    First I want to say RIP Steve Jobs. You were a great man and the tech world wouldn’t be where it is right now without you. Apple will not be the same without you. As a fan of technology I can’t help but appreciate all that you have done to change the world. 

    Secondly…Droid-Life is like a second home to me, I spend more time on this site than I do on any other site on the net.. it is so sad to see so many flagged comments in this thread. This is not what our community is about or should be about. One of the things I was most proud of was that we didn’t have any of this kind of nonsense on our site like there is on other tech sites. Everyone was so respectful here. We never got caught up in the super fanboyism or trolling. We respected each others differences and opinions. I hope that this isn’t the beginning of all the trolling and such. We are too good for that and I would hate to see such a great community tainted by such negativity.

    Can’t believe some of you people, no he didn’t invent gravity but so what.  He passed away so show some dignity, rest in piece steve..

  • Hedney3

    This is where you are wrong. Steve jobs did create and design and take part in most of all apple products especially at the creation of the business. In fact if you want to hear a nice speech and story from him check out his 2005 commencement speech at stanford. He was a genius and brilliant at what he loved. He created a product through a philosophy of mixing art and technology together and through that changed the way mobile, personal computers and a whole bunch of other things are made and used. And saying that him being just a man is not worthy of praise or of remembrance for his achievements and accomplishments is nieve at best. we are all just people but its our actions that separate us from each other and its what we do with that defines us after we move on. I hope you can take from this and realize that this is the end of an era in some sense and appreciate what steve jobs did for the tech world.

  • ChocoTaco369

    I’m the antithesis of an Apple fanboy.  I consider them to be of cult
    status, I think they treat their customers poorly, their products are
    very overpriced for what you get and they focus more on aesthetics than
    real world performance.  However, losing Steve Jobs is a HUGE loss.  He
    may not have been known for the warmest, kindest or friendliest person,
    but he has helped transform the technology market more than nearly
    anyone in existence.  He revolutionized the computer AND mobile phone
    industry.  Love or hate the iPhone, we may not have Android without it. 
    At the very least, it would be very different.  While Android may have surpassed iOS today, Steve Jobs and Apple pretty much popularized how today’s smart phone looks both
    physically and in terms of software development.  Love or hate Apple,
    you have to respect how the products fundamentally transformed the
    marketplace.  I can firmly state that without Apple and Steve Jobs, phones would be less powerful than they are today!

    Our children’s children will one day be learning in school about this man and his accomplishments and innovations in our history. RIP Mr. Jobs

  • R.I.P Mister Jobs. If it wasn’t for you we would not be where we are today. 

  • Although I was not an apple fan and disliked Steve Jobs because of what him and his company tried to do and most of the time succeeded to every other company. (Like sewing everyone because it looked like an apple or acted like an apple) He will be missed by me and many others cause with out him we would have probably never have had android. With all due respect  R.I.P. Mr. Jobs!!!

  • I never had a iphone, never liked the imac, never cared for Apple at all. I did however get the opportunity to learn on a computer at the age of 7 on a Apple II computer. This sparked my love for computers and technology and lead to my career in the technology world. Thank you Steve Jobs for your contributions to the area in which I love so much. You are definitely someone that deserves respect and memorization of your accomplishments. Rest in peace.

  • RW-1

    I’ll put it this way:

    The only worthy opponant to our favorite OS has passed on, who shalt take up that mantle?

    Damn, we’ll miss you Steve, it was a fun battle.

    Steve Jobs was a creator, an innovator, and a good man.  If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have Android, so all you retards, have some respect.  Steve, you were a great man and you will be missed.

  • I must express some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this incident. Right after surfing around through the internet and finding opinions which are not productive, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the solutions to the problems you’ve resolved as a result of your entire guideline is a critical case, and those which might have adversely damaged my career if I had not discovered your website. Your good skills and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was valuable. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this skilled and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to recommend the blog to any individual who requires recommendations about this issue.

    I commend you Kellex for writing a tasteful post. I am understanding to the fact that your not monitoring this site 24/7 but honestly something needs to be done about the people who would badmouth someone they do not personally know on any level. I can’t believe there is any denying on what he did for the tech world. I won’t even go into that, because quite frankly anyone who denies that does not deserve any type of response because there is obviously a lack of intelligence there (I know. Small run on). For those who also include anything about “good riddance” or anything remotely like that, I’m ashamed to be associated with the same community as you. It’s just a damn shame. RIP Steve Jobs. YOU REVOLUTIONIZED THIS INDUSTRY!

    I have never owned an Apple product, but every personal electronic device I have owned has in some way or another been affected by the creativity of Steve Jobs and Apple. He will be missed by Apple that’s for sure, but he will be missed most by those who loved him and knew him.

    I’ve looked at this site for many years now. Not until now have I ever been sad to be a reader. Android and Apple are different and great platforms in their own respect. You might hate Apple but hating someone who changed phones as we know it is ignorant. Go back to your sad world and your nights of doing nothing but flashing ROMS and not knowing anything more than just that…flashing others people work. You will never be someone who makes a difference in the tech world because your ignorant and not opened minded enough. Android is superior and for one reason…competition pushed the platform to new heights. Have some respect, mostly to the dumb KID who said something like this, “I didn’t know him so I don’t feel bad he lied.” It’s comments like this that won’t allow you to amount to SHIT in your life and your future will be spent disrespecting people who are better than you.

  • Viperxns

    I would say to everyone trying to bash alex to discontinue your futile efforts . every one is entitle to their opinions and he certainly has expressed his none the less , i yearn for the day when we all can be a little more in tune to each other in race , creed and beliefs that it  is GOD that made all of us and we really are whether we like it or not family. and to mr alex please sir have some respect for any person who has left this earth because today we may mourn others passing on who we may know personally or intellectually and tomorrow others may mourn us tomorow. this is a road we all must take so let us respect the one,s who passes before us. may GOD bless all of you and if you are faithful to HIM in this life as True Christians we will live FOREVER with HIM !!! and that is the TRUTH.

  • i almost feel like someone i know died. he was such an amazing person to watch speak. everytime he introduced a product you could see him light up like a child. he had such an enthusiasm for everything his company made. the tech world lost a legend and a true innovator. his legacy will go on for as long as we have computers and cell phones.

    The technology world lost a visionary today. Steve Jobs did wonderful things for the world of computing. He changed how we listen to music. He brought us the first worthy smart phone. I have never been a big fan of Apple products, but still appreciate the amount of work Steve Jobs put into the industry to spur the competitive edge that is out there today. With this competitive spirit in the technology world, devices have advanced to far greater potential then would have been possible in the short span of 10 years since the first iPod. As a technology enthusiast, I am thankful for a genius like Steve Jobs. He will be missed!

    Although I am not a big Apple fan, we have to remember that Its more than just a innovator that we lost. It was a human being and a father and a husband. The fact that the battle between Apple and Android is beside the point. We should remember that there are many sick people in the world with cancer and other diseases and a man like him should be remembered as someone that changed the world not just with inventions but moving us into the future. Maybe someday some of the innovations from apple can help diagnose and cure the sick in the world. God bless you Steve Jobs. Defenitley a JOB well done. Im so glad you no longer are suffering.    RIP

    Steve Jobs was the kind of visionary that set the standard in Computing with Macs, Mobility with iProducts, and Animation with Pixar. That kind of vision made other technology companies strive to do better. As a company, it reminds you that there are still great things that come from America. As a man, it reminds us that we can each make an impact on the world and the people in it. RIP Steve Jobs.

  • No matter how much we compete in products with them, we will always be thankful for apple. They made technology better and sometimes just as well as android. We will miss you Steve. You were my hero.

  • Tesseract 3

    I hate apple and never cared much for steve jobs. However, I cannot deny that he had great influence in the tech world. While I don’t believe most of apples products were truly innovative, he had a knack for getting people interested in existing technologies that no one was paying much attention to. Technologies that might never have been developed without his influence. I don’t think apple did that much that was truly innovative, but I believe that steve jobs has been using his company and influence to push the tech market to greater heights throughout his whole career. Without him there would not have been nearly as much hype, desire, competition or anything in the tech market, and it would never have reached the level it has today. So tonight I raise my glass to jobs, I may never have been a fan, but the world of tech would not be the same without you. You will be sorely missed.

    It’s a sad day. I wish people could just put away their differences and just enjoy what they have. Who cares what device you use or what your favorite whatever is. We are ALL people, we are not defined by the devices we use, we are defined by what we do. This man took the bull by the horns, which is a lot more than I can say for many people alive today.

    Fighting over who’s phone does this or my OS does that seems pointless now doesn’t it? Even though this day was expected it still hits hard. That someone none of us knew personally, maybe even didn’t care for professionally, touched our lives in profound ways that we have yet to truly appreciate. 

    Yes I’m Android fan but I’m also a fan of technology & those who bring it to us. I think the most fitting tribute we can pay to Steve Jobs is to say a kind word & thank him for our love of technology. 

    Go rest high on that mountain good sir… Your work here is done.

    RIP Steve.  Thank you for being such an innovator.

    God Bless.

  • R.I.P Steve. We have lost a founding father of the Tech World. 

  • Here is an excerpt from Steve Job’s commencement speech at Stanford in 2005 after explaining some of his initial bout with cancer: 

    “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.”  

    His words are something to consider. We each must live in the light of eternity.

    “You don’t even know what tomorrow will bring–what your life will be! For you are a bit of smoke that appears for a little while, then vanishes” (James 4:14, HCSB).

    To the Jobs tamily, technology couldn’t be what it is today without innovation from people like Steve. From his start in his garage building boards that started the revolution of the computer age to idea of meetings media, phone, video and entertainment into one tight package. He was, is and will always be a role model for young technology oriented people to know that dreams can come true. It takes a lot of hard work, sacrifice and dedication. In the end, the most beautiful things would exist. To all who read this, without steve, computers would suck. Android wouldn’t be here. Smartphones wouldn’t be thought of. Without Steve doing what he did, we would have been lost as a society and culture. Thanks Steve for everything you have done to invent, inspire and benchmark against. You were the exception to the rule.

  • ABombs

    let’s put all the smartphone inventor stuff to the side…. Apple isn’t a phone company. They are a computer company. While I use Android phones, and think they are superior to the iPhone…Steve started the revolution of technologically advanced, smooth running, sleek designed home computers and laptops. Let’s remember the old school iMac with the half rounded base and swivel, the Powerbook lineup, and the super powerful G4 towers. I used all of these machines for my design work growing up – and their capabilities blew away any PC… technology started by Steve.

    So, put the phone war thing aside, and remember that Steve started it all with the computer. And while I’ll be buying the Nexus Prime when it comes out…. I will never ever go leave Apple for my computer uses. Thanks Steve for absolutely pushing the technological edge and to date, pushing other competitors to step up their game.

    Who knows if Android would even exist without the man.  R.I.P

    • Kakashiisagod

      I agree man, Ive been a Mac user all my life. While iOS never really caught my interest like Android Steve Jobs saved Apple from collapsing on more than one occasion and made it the success it is today. As a public speaker I looked up to him, Apple press conferences will never be the same.

  • Joe

    Truly wonderful to see so many hands-down Android fanboys & girls taking a moment to say such kind-hearted and positive things about Mr. Jobs.  And great to know so many of us are able to realize how lucky we are as electronics consumers and hobbyists to have such incredible competition occurring in the marketplace right now.  And Steve Jobs was one of the very biggest players in this.  We are all the direct beneficiaries of this competition, and well all owe him a great thanks.  RIP.

    • Joe

      And by the way I can only hope that his immediate family and friends can learn of how the otherwise highly-competitive Android blog sites and community are all uniting to say such endearing things about him at this time, as I know if I were his family I would be very touched.

  • DroidFan

    I am not apple fan, but I will say this. Steve Jobs changed the world, he changed the way we use technology. All these Android, Microsoft phones came after iphone. All tablets came after iPad, All mp3 players came after ipod.

    I don’t think he can be replaced!

I can only wish that we can all learn from his wisdom as he worked himself to death to make the greatest company of all time. His memories will all be shared forever and his name will never be forgotten. Just goes to show how fragile one life can be and we should never forget that.

  • Joesred

    My thoughts…
    My son came upstairs and told me the news about Jobs.  I was shocked but not surprised.  Next thing I knew I felt a little empty and deeply saddened.  Honestly, I even felt a bit confused and afraid about the future.  Trust me…I am not an Apple fan.  We have all lost in this deal.  Competition drives advancement and the that man was competition.  He battled everything … even his own disease.

    Let me share how I feel.  This is the odd part.  Remember the part in Star Wars when Darth Vader had his helmet off and was dying talking to Luke.  You could see him for the vulnerable man that he was.  You could actually see Vader had been ill for a long time but continued to fight.  At that point in the movie you had to respect the villain…the man in black.  I wanted Luke to put that helmet back on Vader and have some technological miracle bring him back.  It did not happen for Vader or Jobs…we all have to have an end.

     I feel that way way about this with Steve Jobs.  I never hated him….but I loved the technological battle. I love  rivalries, sports, employment and technology…It makes us all better.  He drew lines in the sand for the world to meet or cross.

    So if we are all this sad….I cannot imagine how the Apple loyalists are feeling. 

    Prayers to his friends and family.

    I myself am an Android user. However, I thoroughly enjoy the products Apple has created under Steve Jobs guide and genius. Since my exposure to Android a year ago, there has been one concurrent theme that keeps popping up: a deep hatred for all that is Apple. I’ve heard many jabs taken at Apple’s lack of customization and openess. Some of the harsher comments, though, I feel were focused on Steve Jobs. I am saddened by the response from the Android community. Not because they are sympathetic or heartless in their comments. No, what saddens me is that it took the death of an icon to finally acknowledge and commend a man who pushed technology to its edge, and brought back innovations that have become widely utilized and praised. There have been times that many policies surrounding Apple’s products have been criticized, but it’s not news that Steve Jobs knew what was wanted, and popular, took that, and gave the world an amazing line of products. I thank Steve Jobs from the bottom of my heart, and give my deepest condolences to his family and friends during this time. The world has lost an amazing, innovative individual who’s genius will shine through the many facets of technology that he has touched. Rest in peace Steve, you will be missed by admirers and critics alike.

    This is truly sad. The man was an absolute MUST in the technology we have today, and have had for decades. Many say if it wasnt for him, we wouldnt even have computers. I could argue with that, but thats beside the point. I can say though, that he was an inspiration and icon for every tech related individual. Steve Job’s is the guy that will continue to live on through the world and especially throughout the internet, of course. I will pray for his family, as I know this is a rough time right now. RIP Steve Jobs

You will be missed.

  • As much as the iPhone is hated around this website (I myself, have converted to an iDevice hater), without the original iPhone, we probably would have Android ow it is today. Steve Jobs is one of the greatest technological visionaries of our time, arguably the most important. I saw the news, and I swear, a tear rolled down my face. Steve Jobs, you will be missed.

  • Matthew Merrick

    Its no secret – I hate apple. But even for me, this is sad news. 

    Steve Jobs is the heart and soul of apple. I see this like a sports team – your team is one of the top of them all, and your most hated opponent, and also your toughest opponent, the one you have the most fun challenging, is now gone. I’m sad because Apple, the one who makes competition in computers actually happen just won’t be the same after this. 

    Its also sad to me on a more personal note, because I have lost multiple family members to cancer. However, one good thing will come of this: you can fully expect to see apple’s huge reserves of money fueling the fight against cancer, and this means that more lives will be saved. 

    So, for the first time ever, I sincerely say thank you, Steve Jobs, for being the most worthwhile opponent Microsoft and Google have ever seen. And thank you for all that you will continue to do, even after you’re gone. You will be missed – and Apple will never be the same without your inspiration, and your legendary Reality Distortion Field.

    Rest In Peace.

Yet you act as if I’ve bad mouthed the man in some way. Well believe me, there are far worse things that I can say about him; most of which are 100% true. But I decide to just say I won’t miss him or his “quirks”.

        • DBK

          Just because you have the right to your opinion doesn’t mean that you need to voice during this sad time. It makes you come off as a disrespectful douche. You can go play in traffic now.

          Oh and I agree with N_M.

          • As always, when someone’s opinion doesn’t coincide with your own, you label it disrespectful. I’ll let you in on a secret; respect is earned, not given. Think about that for a bit.

          • DBK

            And he definitely earned it. If it wasn’t for his constant pushing in the mobile field and his innovations in the computer field, technology wouldn’t be where it is today.

            I labeled your comment as disrespectful not because it didn’t coincide with mine, but because it was in fact disrespectful. A man just died and all you can do is criticize. If you have nothing positive or even neutral to say, then shut it. This isn’t the time for those kind of remarks. The least you can do is wait a day before hating.

          • I think you have some reading up to do about him…

        One comment you don’t like doesn’t mean you should put one up equally as bad. 

        • Thank you, and no offense; but how is saying that I won’t miss an Apple overlord equally as bad as wishing someone cancer? Those 2 statements aren’t even in the same ballpark…

          • Robert White

            No no don’t misunderstand… I do get where you are coming from & I personally have many strong opinions that aren’t favorable of Steve Jobs. I’ve chosen not to share them at this time. Just as I could say equally troubling things about the one wishing you cancer. 

            My point to him was if he was so put off by you why bother replying. He brought nothing to the dialogue by wishing cancer on you. In reality he opened himself up for personal attacks. I’ll let imaginations run wild with that as I’m not going to do that in this forum at this time. 

            But if you don’t like what someone writes do us all a favor & ignore it & move on or flag it for review. No need to pour gasoline where there is no fire.

    Having been an Apple/Macintosh fan since I was 12 years old in 1984, I can say that I’ve been witness to its ups and downs over the past 27 years. Steve Jobs was a very curcial part of the comeback and mainstay of Apple, but his credits don’t stop there. One might look at his life as being cut short at 56, but if you look at this man’s accomplishments, anyone could say that this man has done more in his lifetime, than many of us could even imagine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs Follow this link and prepare to be amazed.

    Had this in the previous post but better suited here:

Hope someone steps up to the plate to continue innovation and competitiveness among manufacturers. As an Android user I recognize and respect what he has accomplished and brought, directly or indirectly, to the world of technology.

        Because Steve Jobs developed all Apple products.  

        I seriously can’t believe the amount of Jobs worship going on here.  Dude was responsible for some good stuff in the technology world, but without the smart programmers and gifted designers, nothing special would have ever come out of Apple.

        Let’s not forget with Jobs at the helm, Apple also put out plenty of shitastic products that nobody ever cared about.  Some people who worked for him developed the iPhone, which has ALWAYS behind the curve in terms of tech.  The only thing the iPhone EVER had going for it was that it had smooth animations.  Early versions had no Multitasking, no MMS, no video recording… these were all things my old HTC WinMo 5.0 phone could do and my feature phones before it… but hey, the iPhone had smooth animations and the interface of GoLauncher and TouchWiz’s App Drawer.  I suppose without those groundbreaking innovations, we wouldn’t have Android, right?
        Jobs’ biggest contribution to the Smart Phone world was realizing that Smart Phones were marketable to the consumer.  WinMo, Palm, BB… they were all marketed and made for business use.  Android was already in development at the time, and would have eventually taken off.  

        Stop drinking the kool aid.  He was the worlds greatest salesman who could sell old technology, but almost everyone here is giving the guy WAY too much credit.

            Yes, I’m ignorant because I can look at facts.  

            Remember this:

            Remember when he stood on stage and lied to everyone showing videos of other phones dropping reception?  Remember when his company lied about the iPhone 4s antenna crapping out?  

            I said I don’t know him personally, but I know he’s a liar based on how he behaved at the helm of his company and based on how his company acted.  

            That’s all I need to know to know I don’t care for him.  

            In regards to empathy, I’m not required to show empathy for people I don’t know.  Try going up to strangers and telling them about your problems and see how much empathy you get.

            Yes, this may be a blog about Android phones but I guess I was expecting people to act like adults.  This is one of those situations where if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it.  Just because we’re on the internet doesn’t mean we don’t have to be respectful, decent people.  I’ll admit I’m an Android fanboy and I’ve never owned an Apple product other than an iPod Nano, but I also know that Android wouldn’t be where it is without Apple.  It is only ignorant to deny that.  I never knew Steve Jobs personally, but I do know that without him, Apple wouldn’t be where it is today and neither would Android.  Apple would never have achieved what it did without him and history proves that.  Steve Jobs had a vision that no one else had and led Apple to be one of the most successful corporations in history.

            There’s a big difference between “drinking the Kool-Aid” and respecting a fellow human being who has made a bigger mark on society and the world in general than you will ever hope to in your life.

            Nicely said bbeaulieu.  Your first name isn’t Buck by chance is it?  I went to school as a youngster with a very nice guy names Buck Beaulieu.  Just curious.

            Also, I’d like to add that I never knew Mr. Jobs either but one doesn’t have to personally know someone to understand greatness.  I never knew Jack Nicklaus other than a signature I got from him at a US Open tournament but I understood his greatness…his focus and his love and passion for a game.  I am not going to comment on anyone’s ignorant comments so as to avoid being brought down to such a low level of intelligence.  I will say that I agree with Lonnie Kerchief, Bassdj, bbeaulieu and anyone else that passes on kind words of respect to a legend of a man…an innovator of our times like that of Mr. Jobs.  

            I too have never owned a mac but have spent plenty of times using one and admiring many attributes about those machines.  I have much respect for Steve and his company Apple for driving everyone else, including Android, Motorola etc to new levels.  Because of Steve Jobs and  iPhones we now have another successful American company that was near bankruptcy (Motorola).  Android is my choice for a phone and has been easily since the first Droid.  

            Mr. Steve Jobs, you sir will be missed very much.  God bless!

            Everyone loves to mention these achievements but nobody seems to know what they were.

            I give him credit for getting iTunes in bed with the record companies.  Without that deal, the iPhone would have been just another iRiver/Creative/Phillips mp3 player.  That was a brilliant move.  

            I’m the one saying he didn’t do anything all that great and I can name more achievements than the people arguing with me.  Fun times…

            look man he was CEO for a reason. his huge success at apple is an achievement, his leadership, the confidence to stand behind a product that no one thought would ever catch on, even his decision to step down as CEO for the better of the company are all achievments. he also started pixar. and to quote mr. jobs himself, “what have you done thats so great?” i leave you with that. goodnight.

            He had to step down…he was dying.  He also didn’t start Pixar, he bought it from George Lucas.  
            Yes, he was a one of the most successful business men ever.  He not only started Apple, but returned it to profitability 6months after retaking control.  He was an innovator and often saw the bigger picture when others couldn’t or wouldn’t.  He challenged others to do their best because that’s what he expected of himself.  He will be missed in the tech world.  The tech world is better for it.  RIP SJ.

            maybe i should be more specific. he started pixar movie studios. when george owned it, it was just a graphics company. he suffered seven years with cancer, and remained CEO through that time and only recently stepped down. his mind must not have been right at the end. my dad suffered and died from cancer and became emaciated which caused his mind to go.  so i doubt he stepped down entirely because he was dying otherwise je would haved stepped down sooner to spend time with family before his passing but thats just not the case

            Sucks that a guy died, sucks he suffered from cancer.  I don’t grieve people I’ve never met. 

            I’m not heartless, but I’m not going to boohoo over his death.  I never met the guy.  LIke I said, sucks for his family and friends, but I’m not one of them.

            The issue I have is with everyone suddenly saying he was this amazing genius.  I’d bet you can’t write 5 things he personally did (not Apple, Steve Jobs) that were extraordinary and had never been done before.

You dont have to like him, hell a couple people dont like you now but it doesnt really matter because theres nothing to remember you for. And honestly its shocking that I even care that you successfully kicked a guy in his grave.

            I didn’t kick him in his grave, I simply said “stop brown nosing the dead guy.”  

            People have serious reading problems.  Also, you have no idea who’s behind this moniker.  I could be a complete internet troll living in his (or her?) mother’s basement, or I could be the CEO of my own company with several million dollar homes around the world.  Odds are I’m probably not on either side of the extremes, but you really don’t know how missed I’d be.  Regardless, the point remains, people are only brown nosing the dead guy because the media has told you how great he is.  I doubt anyone here knows anything of his personal greatness and who he was outside of the public eye.  No reason to grieve someone you don’t know.

        • EricTheRed

          Come on dude, no one is worshiping anyone here.  Just recognizing a man who’s vision greatly impacted the technology industry and probably more so specifically the smartphone sector.  Yes, everyone knows there were other people involved in making Apple’s products and he wasn’t personally in his wood shop behind the house making all these things like Santa’s elves.  He used his hard-azz mentality to push those talented people to achieve something great like other great people in history.  You can look up any successful CEO, General, coach in history and they will have D-Bag next to their name in the encyclopedia because that’s what it takes to challenge people to rise up from great to greatest.

          And no, the iPhone didn’t have every feature that other phones had at the time because it was designed with the users’ experience in mind and not how many features you can cram onto one device.  It was visually appealing, easy to use, and very stable.  Every smartphone I’ve ever owned has never been all these things at once (Kyocera, Treo, BB, and now Droid).  I recently purchased my first Droid (Bionic) and love it but it’s no where close to being as visually appealing as an iPhone.  It’s just a fact.  I think Apple products are great, high quality, and do what they were designed to do very well but they all lack features and flexibly I personally want.  Apparently there are a significant amount of people out there who think they need these products and that’s fine.  But no one can deny the man was gifted.  Whether he tricked people into making millions or billions of purchases over the years or people simply purchased Apple products because they were truly what they wanted, he left quite an impression and that is also a fact.

          So cut the man some slack…jack ;).  I think any CEO would KILL to be able to leave behind a work history like his.

            I’ll give you this one, because you make some valid points. 

            However, it’s one thing to say, “A great leader and businessman died today.” 

            It’s another to say, “Steve Jobs personally changed the face of the technology world.”  If anything, his ideas and leadership helped sway the mobile market in a certain direction, and forced Google to innovate harder than they might have if WinMo 7 was their current competition, but would we still be using feature phones today if Steve Jobs was never given the reigns of Apple again?  No.  That would be just silly to say.

          • You like touch screens?  Thank Steve Jobs.  Before him, it was a pipe dream and we all huddled around our little rolling balls on our blackberries.

            You like smartphones that do more than email and a few shoddy apps?  Thank Steve Jobs.  Before him it was only slow as hell apps and just email on our blackberries.

            I could go on, but the dogs need to go for a run (as does my fattening ass).

            Stop pretending he and his innovations don’t matter to you just to get attention.

            Right.  My WinMo 5 phone 2 years prior to the iPhone’s release didn’t have a touch screen…. oh wait… it did!

            I didn’t have apps I could download like WiFi Tether, SPB Backup, Opera Mini, Google Maps…. oh wait, yes I did!

            Feature phones like the LG Voyager had touch screens as well prior to the iPhone.

            Get real, iProducts weren’t the first.

          • Easybakeoven

            The Apple II, Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, and iPad weren’t necessarily the first to do what they did, but they all hugely changed their respective industries. To say they didn’t is simply a lie, and so would claiming Steve Jobs didn’t have a huge role to play in all of those products. Facts are facts, m’dude. To quote Steve, “What have you done?”. 

            (btw LG Voyager came out after the iPhone; you’re probably thinking of the Prada, and both [feature] phones sucked.)

          • Anonymous

            Alright, I’ll give you the Apple II, being that it’s in the Smithsonian.  I could still debate how ‘innovative’ it was.

            Macintosh?  You mean the product that the company almost went out of business for in the 90s?iPod, hardly.  Although you COULD make a strong case for iTunes, considering it’s pretty obvious that Jobs had to have direct negotiations with the record companies to be allowed to digitally distribute the music.  Without iTunes, the iPod would have been just another mp3 player.  Downloading torrents, music from Kazzaa/Morpheus/Whatever else people were using back then, or ripping legally purchased CDs and properly tagging them was very tedious; iTunes made it easy and legal to get music.  I give Apple and Jobs full credit for that, and Jobs for having the idea to get in bed with the record companies. The iPod however, was not very innovative… I mean… a Circle to control the whole thing?  What… The… Fuck?iPhone?  It was an iPod touch with a radio.  Hardly revolutionaryiPad?  Oversized iPod with a 3G radio.  Hardly innovative or revolutionary.  

            With the exception of iTunes and it’s pairing with the iPod and the Apple II, none of the products were truly innovative products that completely changed how things were done.  Early articles that pre-date the iPhone’s release talked about Android phones that did everything the iPhone ever did.  

            I think you’re confusing innovation with success.  Windows 95 was one of the most successful products of all time, but was it innovative?  Everyone knows most of the interface was……. borrowed…. from other places.  How about the Game Boy?  Innovative?  Hardly.  Considering the Sega Game Gear had a color screen and an optional TV-Tuner, and the Atari Lynx and TG-16 (can’t remember the name of the Handheld device) was 16 bit and could play console games, the GB was really not innovative… but it had a 10+ year run on the market, and is easily the longest lasting hand-held ever released.  Innovative, no.  Successful, yes.

            Also, whatever the name of the LG-Phone, there were touch screen phones out prior to the iPhone, they were just made at a hardware level for stylus use as opposed to a finger.I can’t believe I replied to this……

            I haven’t read through all the comments (Most are aimed at you) but I don’t think anyone is saying no one could have achieved what he did.  He was given opportunities to impact technology and he did and that is what people are reflecting on.  However, I don’t agree with the media comparing him to Thomas Edison.  That’s a stretch.  I think he should be compared more to Edward Bernays.  I know you have been to a funeral or two in your lifetime.  Do you ever hear the person giving the eulogy say this was a great man but GOOD LORD he screwed up this and failed at that.  No, you reflect on the positive ways he/she impacted the people surrounding that person, but in this case he impacted something that in turn impacted people all over the world.

          • Anonymous

            Impacting technology is not changing the world as these people are claiming.  By reading the comments, you’d think we’d all still be using feature phones with black and white cameras that could only play WMAs and get data off VCAST.  I’m just saying, the guy was not the god he’s being painted as. 

            When I have been to funerals, the eulogy rarely exaggerates accomplishments and paints people bigger than the were.  About 10 years ago when a friend of mine was murdered, I went to his funeral.  He was a tech guy like myself who recently received his A+ Certification and worked as a tech support guy.  Nobody claimed he could fix any and every computer problem.  Claims of his technical prowess were vague and memorable.  “He was great with computers and could usually help me fix whatever problem I had.” 

            Nobody said “I remember the time he used a paper clip, dental floss, a drinking straw, and a hampster in a wheel to build a new computer for me.  We were constantly finding out that he could harness the power of lightning to fight off evil doers as he created the Pentium i15.  If he had kept his job at Intel, we would all be in a better place.”  Nobody said these things because they would have been exaggerations and 100% untrue. 

            You’d think Steve Jobs crapped out iProducts based on the comments here.

        You are correct, Microsoft took the GUI from Apple after Apple took it from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center.  Why do you think Apple lost its lawsuit against Microsoft?  The court declared it was “prior art” and didn’t belong to Apple in the first place, even though Apple  put a patent on it.  Give Apple credit when they earn it, not when they try to pull a fast one.
