    This isn't 4chan though, and being disrespectful isn't really encouraged around here.

    BTW - I haven't neg repped you [or anyone else for that matter] as I don't see the point - you're entitled to your opinion.

    Although I wouldnt put it so *blunt.

    Sad that a man has died so young and really must make people think that life is really too short and you can't simply waste it away. He thought up some good ideas, worked with other fine people, although I will agree he created something but like anything else in todays world it takes a person to come up with an idea but a lot of people working together to really pull it off. Like Bill Gates he created something big and a money maker, but its all the people they work with that really create it.

    haha, same :P I got some pretty childish neg rep for this thread as well that only reenforces what I said earlier about the anti apple crowd being just as rabid as the fanboys. It's very sad.

He gave chances to others in the same mold but yes, he could be your worse enemy if you stood in his way.

    He will be missed.
    I always had the impression that Gates and Jobs, despite being rivals, were also friends at some level, and I quite like Gates' tribute.

    Thought this tribute to Steve Jobs was well done, simply named “Thanks, Steve.”

    What go to remember people who work in same industry know each other and on a basic level get on (we have to really for things to work) however we of course deny all knowledge of it if anyone asks

    Like or dislike apple its still a tragedy when anyone passes away so young. RIP Steve.


    I must say though some of the things being said are very cringe worthy, like on the BBC article about is someone posted this
    3 Apples changed the World. The 1st one seduced Adam and Eve, the 2nd fell on the head of Sir Issac Newton and the 3rd was offered to the World in the form of a half bitten one by Steve Jobs and has changed the way we listen to music, work, etc. Also showed that technology can be beautiful and not look like lego

    I'm not an Apple fanboy, I have never owned any Apple products due to restrictions imposed on them and utterly loathe iTunes. And the few times I have used Macs I just haven't got on with them.

    But I do think Steve Jobs made a big difference to IT. Microsoft had a huge impact on the desktop market with Windows 95, Apple had equally big impact in the fledgling mobile market with portable devices. It has now grown into the future direction that IT is currently going, both from a hardware and marketing strategy.

    iTunes encouraged people making small transactions regularly, the gaming sector has gone that way too. Steve Jobs stood up against Adobe in the Flash arguments, there is now an entire market for expanding and developing HTML5 and for Adobe to buck their ideas up. What about the tablet market? There wasn't really one before the iPad and now that too has become as competitive as the mobile phone market.

    If there was one thing Steve Jobs was good at, it was rocking the entire IT and web industry and rocking it hard. He has certainly left a huge legacy behind.

    Its a shame a man died young from a horrible disease.

    As for Apple I am neither a fan nor a hater. I think they are masters of selling gadgets to fans of gadgets. They take a PC and make it look nice but its still a PC but now twice the price.

    Perhaps Apple are more of a designer label these days than a manufacturer of tech?

    I would say that whoever compared Jobs to Henry Ford is probably closest here. Ford didn't invent the motor car. He didn't invent the internal combustion engine. He didn't invent the assembly line. All of those technologies already existed. What he did was bring them together and brand them successfully. That's exactly what Jobs did. There were already tablets, already MP3 players, before Apple brought the technology together with online services and brand them successfully.

    That doesn't take anything away from his achievements just as it doesn't take anything away from Ford's achievements to acknowledge that he didn't invent the motor car.

    Just checked out the Stocks for Apple on NASDAQ (Warning: Boring financial stuff ahead!).

    EDIT - Scratch that, so many numbers and lines I misread the damned thing >.<
