  • When he stepped down as CEO, I told my husband "he's not going to make it to the end of the year." When he asked why I said that, I answered "because he wouldn't quit unless he physically had to." I'm sad that I was right. :-(

    He died way too young. See you in the iCloud...

  • Though I disliked the technology he helped fund I respected the man. R.I.P 

    I'm relieved to know it happened while he was surrounded by family

  • Blogkitten and I have decided to try to keep the chatting out of global chat and will have a party chat open for those who would like to join. Just IM one of us to be invited as we try to cover Fenman Falters in apples. Yes, we understand that this isn't much of an effort in his memory, and that people have different opinions about the man, but we ask that those who do will try to respect the wishes of those who want to participate, for fun, for his memory, or for whatever reasons. We acknowledge that people will probably disregard these wishes anyways, but we thank those who drop by to help out without turning this into a big dramatic event. People all have their own reasons on why they may be sad or may not care for this. They're entitled to think whatever they want.

    It IS part for fun, because that is what this game is about, being creative and coming up with projects like this. And while I can't speak for everyone, it may mean more or less to them. If I may suggest, people who dislike this idea can gather a group and fill a DIFFERENT street with oranges. Or bananas.

  • @Kimbers - He resigned already due to health, Apple was already out of his hands.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the company. I can honestly say I was an Apple hater, even if I *am* fully addicted to my iPhone, i have never owned another Apple product. That said, I respected and admired the man. Not to mention, there would be no Pixar if it weren't for him.

  • The Feman Falters group has moved to join the one by Lord Bacon-o and Co. due to losing too many apples. Thank you, LB!

  • I plan to name a few pigs in honor of him some species of apples.

  • This is a terrible loss of a true visionary, at a time when we need such minds. He was only a few weeks older than I, and not as lucky with cancer as I have been. This hits me as an awful blow. May he rest in peace.

  • I never liked Apple's products, as an end-user. I liekd how they were designed though, aesthetically and internally. I liked Apple's ability to conquer the world with simple yet expensive products.

    I always admired the guy.

    My heart broke when I heard the news.

    SiH, Mr Jobs.

  • Still doesn't seem real - but I am confident that Apple as a company will further Steve's vision; but his loss will be noticed, especially the "insanely great" he brought us.

  • In a world where we're always hearing 'NO' (you can't raise taxes, you can't cut services, you can't do this, you can't do that) Jobs' career is a testimony to those with vision and drive.
