"Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc. chairman and co-founder who pioneered the personal computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, died Wednesday."

This is really breaking news (was just announced a few minutes ago), so if anybody has any additional sources they wanna post go ahead and add on to this.

Poor guy, its funny that it was a fake death at first, then he actually did die. That's a bit weird, but Apple Inc. wont be the same now without the co-owner, shame. RIP Steve Jobs

R.I.P. Steve Jobs. You were a great man, who did and made some great feats in technology. The world will miss you!
I also believe he died of Pancreatic cancer.

Damn. Just this is actually pretty sad. I am sad about this but I do not know what to think now he was a good guy and he died. I guess that is how life works though.

pi0x : Yes, he's been suffering from a rare form of pancreatic cancer. In fact, most people who have had pancreatic cancer would have been dead a while ago, so he's been living on a prayer for the past couple of years.

Now how do you think Apple will manage itself? Even though he had already retired, he probably had some input with the company? Do you think it will be different, or remain mostly the same?

the_casualty : Actually they did not specify the reasons for Job's death. As to if and when they tell us how he died is up to them.

That aside, it is absolutely shocking how sudden this is since he stepped down as CEO just over one month ago. Because of the decline of the company after Steve was fired by Apple back in the 90's, people are already wondering if they will stay afloat. But that is for later.

Now is the time to pay our respects to someone who revolutionized some of our everyday media --music, TV, movies, and more. He started in a garage... and built one of the biggest companies in the world. He strived to make products that consumers could use with ease as soon as they bought them.

Well, I think it'll still go pretty well. I'm not a big fan of Apple products so I can't really analyze how I think it's gonna go, but I'm sure that there are other leaders that will step up and come up with some more great ideas.

Was just about to post this until I decided to look in here first. I wasn't a fan of Apple, but the guy did a lot for the world. Sucks that he had cancer. And at only 56, too. He was one who deserved to live longer. It'll be sad to see him go. R.I.P. Steve.

It is truly a sad day for the tech world, since Jobs really was a brilliant mind. Apple will be just fine though, they have a lot of talented minds.

... I am still laughing at the puns and jokes coming out though... but I feel that it is a different form of mourning.

I heard he had heart problems, but it was probably the cancer. This marks an important day in history, RIP Steve Jobs for all that he has accomplished and brought to this world. now Tim Cook takes over. Interesting to see the direction he takes.

Huh, well that really sucks. I heard he resigned just a little bit ago, and then he dies? That's really disappointing, just imagine the retirement plan that guy must've had! No disrespect, but on a silly note: I want to be one of the first to spread a conspiracy rumor that Apple had him assassinated. Resignation and then death? He must've known too much.

AuraBlaze : Ok... just remember, I was asked.

*picture of Steven Jobs* "iDead"

Cancer: There wasn't an app for that.

Steve Jobs isn't dead, he just became obsolete. The iSteve 4GS will be out later this month.

Reports are coming in that doctors tried reviving him but it turns out that the defibrillator required flash

The employees at Apple are going to need a pink slip... because they're all Jobless.

The doctors told him that all he needed to do was right-click...

Steve tried to reup for another year, but wasn't eligible for an upgrade.

He could have been saved, but when it came to it, his Dr. didnt know what to do without ctr-alt-dlt.

... and others along that vein.

Elara : I honestly laughed at that, because it wasn't really against Steve Jobs, more about the flaws of the iPhone and Macs, and puns on names. I'd be surprised if anyone was offended by those.

I have no real opinion on Steve Jobs or his products since iNeverBoughtAny.

In all seriousness though, he was a brilliant man (or so I am told) and the world will miss him (if my facebook wall is indicative of the world)

I feel bad for his loved ones, and I will probably get yelled at for having a jokey take on things like this.

It was his time, and he went peacefully apparently. So there's that. No better way to go, than to go when you say you are ready.

I can only hope this will take a bite out of the Apple craze.... but I expect it will do the opposite of that.
