Steve Jobs

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. —Apple

You were one of them Steve. This world will sorely miss you.

I have to agree. Steve Jobs was one of the great minds of our generation. Too young to leave us!

I'm still amazed at the people who said he really wasn't sick when he took that leave of absence earlier (they said it was an advertizing stunt). He is/was IMO the most popular CEO in the U.S.A. His replacement has some gi-normas shoes to fill.

Steve Jobs' success embodied the American dream; from two guys in his parent's garage to the most valuable corporation in the world. His boundless drive for perfection in what he envisioned as the ultimate consumer products was his motivation. More CEO's and entrepreneurs should be motivated like this rather than greed, the world would be a better place. He deserved the success and riches this brought him, he worked hard for it.

I am not familiar with ipods, ipads nor iphones. Not at a point where I can afford such items. However, I recognize genius when I see it. Steve Jobs was one of the greatest minds of his generation. It is true that many seek to change the world, yet few are even remotely successful. All one has to do is look around and you can see how Steve Jobs and Apple have changed our lives. It is amazing the technoogy advances Steve spear-headed, and I hope those left in charge at Apple had the opportunity to have some of Mr. Jobs' genius rub off on them, because I don't want to to see the company lose any steam.

A great mind, a great person, who helped build a great company that makes great products. My first Apple product was a 128K Mac with a single drive. I bought that in 1984. I've lost track of the number of Macs that I've had over the years. That first Mac cost me more than the this current PowerBook with 4GB of memory. I also lost count of the I-Pods that I have purchased for me and the family over the years. Synced to the computer is the latest acquisition, the I-Phone so that a lot of my informations stays right with me. Products that were only science fiction 30 years are now in everyday use by the average person. Steve Jobs was to the electronics/information industry what Henry Ford was to the automobile industry. Quite a feat. Thank you Mr. Jobs!!

Not bad for a guy who worked for $1 a year since 1998. I guess he must have made up for that in stocks and options, because he's worth $10.6 Billion dollars.

You do not have to own an Apple product to have been touched by Steve Jobs. All the off spring "droids," and other computers are just some of the ways he has touched our society. Without his vistion and production of computers, I think we would be way behind where we are now.

Just look at the newest, the iPad, then look at all the lookalikes in the small tablet world.

He was a genius.

I don't know who created this, but I sure hope Apple picks it up.

A 19 year old design student from Hong Kong, according to the credit on the NY Times page I saw it on.

Got MacBook Pro, iPad2, iPhone 4S to be here next week. Think I'm an Apple believer. Steve Jobs took us the for a ride on the biggest leap since the typewriter and record player. Genius !

RIP, Steve. I'm thankful everyday for how much better my life is because of him. I have a whole music library in my iPod (could play it for 8 days, 24 hours a day and never would the same tune repeated.)

Steve Jobs is one of several people who we can point to as examples of the American dream. When I listen to people talking about guys like him "sucking all the air out of the room,", I remind them that not only did Apple take the personal computer to a whole new level but the "drag along" of many other products improved all of our lives. It is not as if all of the problems of mankind are solved. There is plenty of room for those with vision and understanding of those problems that we have to find opportunity in developing the solutions for them. The sad fact is that there a few geniuses like Steve Jobs who are able to find those solutions.
