Thank you Steve!
My condolences to his family and friends.
Thanks to TIPB for putting this together!

jiden77 says:

Anyone hear whether or not that wacky, horrible, unethical piece of garbage Westboro Church kept their twisted promise to picket the service?

Stark says:

There were too many ninjas and snipers around. Those pieces of shit wouldn't stand a chance.

robes1 says:

I'm sorry to have lost you but I'm so happy that you came and that you shared your vision. You changed so many different industries and the way that so many things are done. You were the future. I'll always wonder what you might have shown us next.
Thank you!

I'd kill to be a fly on the wall at Google. I wonder if they're distasteful enough to be celebrating and having a block party.

Brian says:

If you didn't notice google and Samsung postponed there device and ios launch next week out of respect

just cause you are competitors with someone in life and even if you dislike someone it does mean you dont have respect for that person

A tree which grew from humble origins, a simple seed,
Over the years it sprouted, growing at a steady pace,
Clearly striving, growing towards the sun, and the stars,
Strong and majestic at last it stood, bearing the iconic red fruit,
For years it bore, until it could no more,
The fruit that fell did indeed rot, though its loss not in vain, leaving behind many seeds,
To grow again into multiple trees.
RIP Steve Jobs
A great loss those suffer who knew you, and for those who haven't will from your legacy. You aimed for the stars...you made it my good man.

Ian Burns says:

The true proof of the impact he has had on the technological world is the innovation that will continue, following the example he left.

Robert White says:

That was fast. So much for a large public ceremony many were hoping for. Good to see they are keeping it low key in private like Steve was in life.

Earless Puppy says:

I still believe they downloaded his brain into the new server farm....

Brad Morris says:

Is that why they waited to release iOS 5 until next week?

TKFox007 says:

They're holding it today? That's good, looks like the Westboro Baptist Church won't be able to make it there in time to protest.

"Because we're already naked." -Steve Jobs

Dylan Dinh says:

I was looking for my inspirational person for my life. After watching your speech in 2005 at Stanford University, and everything you brought to the Earth from your "world". After 22 years, I found you. You will always be missed, sir. Please, iRest.

OneOfDaKine says:

God Bless Steve for what he had done. I believe Apple should change there apple logo to the picture above. That will be a great picture.

Abtin Adib says:

Its amazing how SAD we feel about someone's death, someone we didn't even know. He truly was amazing and his creations just changed the face of technology as we know. I am grateful to live in time of Steve Jobs and Michael Jacksons. RIP Steve. Everyone will MISS you.
