    My first computer was an Apple IIe. I am now typing this on an iPad II.
    He has truly changed the world.

    He was certainly a genius and an innovator. Now, I am curious to see what becomes of Apple now that his vision is no longer the force behind what they do.

    One can only hope that he has assembled a team that will continue to keep his dreams alive.

    He will indeed be missed. A very sad day. Will hug my kids a little tighter for awhile, thankful for our good health.

    Steve's passing is a huge loss to tech innovation. His creations are user friendly and intuitive. They just work. May his spirit continue to guide Apple.

    On the Death of Steve Jobs:

    My heart goes out to everyone grieving for his death. His products changed my life and his style influenced my faith in myself to succeed in the face of failure.

    Thank you for your relentless drive to deliver the best experience a customer could ask for.

    I just felt sucker punched when I heard.

    That's cool. Hadn't seen that before -- is it the new logo, or just something circulating?

    A student did it. It's not the official logo.

    He was the CEO, "His creations" were usually the work of others, that work will continue, Steve just bought products to market. Take the iPod, Steve did! designed by Kane Kramer
