    Yeah I heard about this about a half hour ago, I was watching a stream and someone in chat said he died. Everyone was like no way, we then all started linking news sites to confirm it. Very shocking death.

    I think we all secretly knew something was the matter when he stepped down. A real shame he passed away from his illness.

    No matter what your stance on Apple is, you can't deny his advancement and innovation that helped shape technology and the internet today. He will definitely be missed.

    RIP Steve.

    I was playing DotA2. We had a silent minute of no-ganks for him.

    The guy knew how to be creative and how to make money. Even though i am not a big fan of apple products ... gotta give the man credit for doing what he did. The world indeed lost a great mind.

    He was ill for a long time, had pancriatic Cancer since 2007, still sad to see him go. I think Obama mentioned that it is a testament to Steve Jobs that nearly half of the civilised world would read the news of his passing on one of his own inventions.

    Great innovator, and a man who changed Mobile phones and Desktop Computing forever.

    I'm not looking for a discussion, i'm just curious to know...

    For example, i know i don't like Steve Balmer from Microsoft since he looks retarded when he speaks and lacks the classy posture that Steve Jobs had (in my opinion)

    You're right.

    Steve Jobs wasn't some1 that i loved or hated, it was some1 that i admired for his professional ingenuity. He may not have invented world changing stuff all by himself, but he sure did his job like no one (CEO) and will forever mark Tech companies history at that. Even now we see lots of other people (if anyone watched amazon kindle fire presentation, you know what i'm talking about) follow in his footsteps. And of course, like Steve Wozniak said in an interview yesterday and many apple folk say, he was indeed a genius and i really admire him. I wish i could one day accomplish a tiny fraction of what he did.

    Sadly he died in one of the most horrible ways. By the way, one of my grandmothers died with the exact same type of cancer aswell. It's a really bad way to go. Steve himself pointed out in some late interviews that he knew his end was close, that he knew he was going to die soon. I can't imagine what it's like to feel that way... All i can say is that Steve, like him or not, left his footprint in the world as we know it. I don't believe in afterlife or god, so saying rest in piece sound a bit meaningless to me, so i'll say this instead: We should all be happy that our race (human) spawned a being like Steve, and even more that it happened during our lifetime, let's hope that nature smiles upon us many more times so we can keep on evolving into a brighter, better future.
