R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Here's an article:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44794300/ns/business-us_business/t/apple-says-co-founder-steve-jobs-has-died/?gt1=43001

He was battling pancreatic cancer, and lost the war. Whether we love or hate Apple products, there is no denying the technology inspired by his creations.

You will be missed sir.

    I probably wouldn't be posting on the machine I have right now if it weren't for Steve Jobs. May he rest eternally in peace and his legacy live in until the end of man. He truly was an inspiration to many people.

    Did you see my fb post? That's my real feelings on this whole thing.... it might put his death into perspective. (aka,R.I.P. to all the men we've lost overseas this month as well).

    I am glad you posted that. I don't feel like our nation's heroes get the honor they deserve after death. I actually ranted about this a few months ago after a different celebrity had died and it was all over twitter and facebook and not one mention of any of the soldiers. But after my rant, a few good friends of mine who are active duty pointed a couple things out to me. Soldiers/Marines/Sailors/Air Men would rather not be so exalted after they lay down their life. Many of them, and their families, would rather keep it quiet. But yes, RIP to them as well. I find it difficult to even fall asleep at night without first saying a prayer for these men and women.

    Whereas I understand that may not be what they would have wanted, I still recognize the need to acknowledge them for their service. It's not in me to ignore their sacrifice. I sincerely pray for them everyday.

    Your desire to serve without the ability could inspire others on the brink of service. Keep that in mind.... XO

    Ok, I'm actually really sad right now. :(

    Aww, want a hug Classic?
    - DarkHunter October 5, 2011, 3:13 pm
    Thanks sugar. :(
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:14 pm
    Cheer up Classic, there's too much happiness in the world for you to be sad.
    - DarkHunter October 5, 2011, 3:18 pm
    You obviously know me a little by now...I'm usually annoyingly cheerful. It wasn't just the sadness of Mr. Jobs' passing. Please look at my fb status or my sharenator comment below.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:22 pm
    Ok, I will have a read Classic.
    - DarkHunter October 5, 2011, 3:23 pm
    Ahh, I see what you mean now.. I will give you more hugs to cheer you up.
    - DarkHunter October 5, 2011, 3:28 pm
    Thanks, sugar. As you know, my Dad, mom, sister, and friends are in the service. It breaks my heart when I read the obituaries every day. Just to give people my perspective, my dad was awarded the Silver Star and two Bronze Stars for his service. That is one of the second highest honors and two of the fourth highest honors our nations awards. That makes him number one in my book.... ;)
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:31 pm
    Wow, Silver star? That's really good ^_^
    - DarkHunter October 5, 2011, 3:32 pm
    He's a decorated war veteran who was gone 11 years of my life overseas, and I still couldn't have picked a better dad.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:35 pm
    Awww ^_^

    Wow, that's really weird since it says that I posted it 54 minutes ago and she posted 48 minutes ago. Check it. It may not matter, but facts are facts.

    Also, this is what actually mattered to me today:

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs. And Petty Officer 1st Class (SEAL) Caleb A. Nelson, 26, of Omaha, Neb., First Sgt. Billy J. Siercks, 32, of Velda Village, Mo., Spc. James A. Butz, 21, of Porter, Ind., died Sept. 28, Staff Sgt. Nicholas A. Sprovtsoff, 28, of Davison, Mich., assigned to 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, Sgt. Christopher Diaz, 27, of Albuquerque, N.M., assigned to Headquarters Battalion, and so many other Marines lost this month. (Here's a little perspective...but every death deserves mourning and remembrance.) God Bless.

    just out of interest why do people say battling cancer? and the really sad thing is that they do have the cure for cancer but they cant make any money out of it they wont make it.

    And in general i am a large windows fanboy but i will admit that this is a loss to the world of computers. I am that big of a fanboy to admit that.

    Hate to break it to ya, but xDanimalsx posted this 4 minutes before you :P Though this actually posts a link, so that's cool.

    does that really matter who posted something first?
    - awesomeeeee October 5, 2011, 3:11 pm
    Thanks awesom x's 5e's.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:15 pm
    thank you
    it shouldnt really matter anyway
    - awesomeeeee October 5, 2011, 3:19 pm
    Agreeeeeeeeeeeeeeed. I think I'm just a little hot under the collar since it wasn't necessarily Senor Jobs I was thinking of.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:20 pm
    Pardon me for ending a sentence in a preposition. I'm a little distraught.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:20 pm
    its okay, he was a good man that invented a lot of things that changed peoples lives
    we wouldnt have ipods without him or smart phones (maybe)
    - awesomeeeee October 5, 2011, 3:23 pm
    Haha! Very true. And I am deeply thankful for the "knockoff" Droid.... lol
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:28 pm
    to be fair, iphone was first....i think
    - awesomeeeee October 5, 2011, 3:29 pm
    he also says that this gives a link therefore making it a better post
    - BEASTY October 5, 2011, 3:31 pm
    That's why I'm calling my Droid a knockoff.... but I still prefer it.
    - ClassicDarlingXO October 5, 2011, 3:33 pm
    its not really a knockoff, its just that it wasnt first
