Thank You, Steve

I just thought I would make this because I haven't seen any other post about it (Apart from the WBC one >:( - those ungrateful ********)...

Today, Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple passed away.

I would just like to say a simple Thank You for Everything you have done.

I am an Apple person, but I'm not Apple Crazy. I think its sad that he has gone, and everyone else should feel this way, even if they don't like Apple.

Steve has done so much for the music and technology industry, wether you already knew it or not. Even where his products have not been so popular, he had always sparked a new idea for other companies. Why? he would jump where no other company would take the risk.

For Example:
Apple created the PowerBook - one of the first laptops have some sort of decent GUI and navigation - A trackball was built in (instead of a trackpad) for cursor movement.

Apple created the iPod - a music player which created a whole new world of music. This kicked off the MP3 player industry (being a cheap alternative), and the idea of purchasing music without any physical copies which could be damaged or lost. There is definitely no argument here: the iPod is one of the greatest inventions of this century.

Apple created the iPhone - not the first, but the best shot at a smartphone that anyone could use. It was small, portable, light, versatile and fast. It was by far the simplest to use, and the invention of the Capacitive touch screen has changed the mobile phone industry. Not to mention, the AutoCorrect feature, still bringing laughter to people.
Without Apple, it would be likely that Android would NOT have taken off. Android is, in my opinion, the top competitor, and it's because Google took what they thought was wrong with the iPhone and made it better.
I think you are fortunate that you saw the iPhone 4S shown to the public, but it is a massive shame that you will not see it fully launch. I believe that Siri will be your next massive, brave step forward in the mobile market.

Apple created the iPad - Yes, this one got a lot of flak from everyone at first, even me. But wether you like it or not, again, this started the Tablet market for everyone.
Yes, people had tablet PC's, but Apple saw this differently. Without the iPad, you could almost guarantee that the Android Tablet business wouldn't have taken off.

Thanks to Google for showing their appreciation too...

Twitter has been booming with lots of thoughts to Steve. The main hashtags are:

This last image may be considered inappropriate, but I thought it was a nice comment and would probably have brought a smile to his face.

    I may not personally appreciate Apple products, nor do I invest in them. But I care that Steve Jobs is dead, not because he's another dead guy, but because he is a legend.

    I'm a PC fanatic and this man is still a god amongst men. He revolutionized the world (in co-horts with his partner, Steve) by bringing us the personal home computer. If for one moment you can honestly say you give not one care, you need to throw your computer out the window right this instance. To you, it doesn't matter.
    - FireRoastedFire October 6, 2011, 5:30 pm
    Agreed, because even his rival and best friend remember him respectfully. Bill Gates. If there were any man who had the right to say I hate you to him. Itd be Bill. But he didn't.
    - CTUDirector October 6, 2011, 6:04 pm
    please remember the he is the CEO of a rival company, and he cant badmouth him of we will get buttfucked by the press.
    - BEASTY October 7, 2011, 2:29 pm
    Oh please this man who is now sadly passed away did not innovate computers, Computer technology is ongoing Mr Jobs just made them look pretty and make children go to their parents "mummy i want i ipod" or teenage girls go daddy i want a £1100 macbook instead of a laptop.
    This man who people are treating like a computer god is someone in a very long fucking line of people who have made computers
    This man Clive Sinclair
    made computers accessible to people at home rather than people at a office.
    This is a XZ spectrum this was made for the average person or child to do things on.
    or this the Sinclair ZX81
    this sold More than 1.5 million
    why you ask because it costed very little £49.95 kit, £69.95 assembled and as a computer is was very small and quite powerful for the time
    so don't tell me someone who is a legend in computing when really stepping back they fucking are not, if you really want the legend of computers it is this man Alan Turing, dont know who he is google it

    And another thing after being told that he has died so many times there is a point where i do not care anymore, this post supposed that point. i know this is a bit of a rage but really look back at history and look at what other people have don't not just one man.
    - BEASTY October 7, 2011, 3:00 pm
    Then perhaps you should spend more time drawing attention to these people as well, rather than saying, "If everyone who has changed the world of computers can't be famous, no one should!" (paraphrase)
    - Ertrov October 7, 2011, 4:37 pm
    That was in very basic what i was saying
    - BEASTY October 7, 2011, 6:19 pm
    I believe your exact comment was "I really couldn't care less?". Copied verbatim.

    Oh, and Clive Sinclair is still alive... Steve Jobs, the man who, you know, innovated the PERSONAL HOME COMPUTER (Never did I say invent, as the GUI was in fact revolutionized by Apple) is not. This is a Memorial page. You go to a memorial service and say that same thing, look how fast you will be trashed and tossed out.

    Please present a valid argument before trying to prove a point. You are proving yourself heartless.
    - FireRoastedFire October 7, 2011, 10:24 pm
    Yes, but the difference is: Apple actually changed the world. Yes, there was the Sinclair, but it never REALLY took off. People used it but it diddnt change the way people thought about computers.

    Sure, Apple computers ARE expensive. But without extra cash, how do you expect them to keep making the huge marketing jumps forward?
    - SkinnyBill October 7, 2011, 11:36 pm
    when some one dies, to me its just another person, if the queen of England dies i go "oh" think about if for 30 seconds and move on, the same with my family, i have a very strange outlook on life but it works for me
    - BEASTY October 8, 2011, 6:27 am
    the man sold computers and music players thats not changing the world
    changing the world is something more than selling things for allot of money
    this event changed the world

    can you guess what it is?
    apple did not
    - BEASTY October 8, 2011, 6:30 am
    Again, have any outlook you would like, but unesseccary commenting upon a memorial page about said view point is just plain rude.

    Furthermore, to post on this post that you don't care AND defend that point shows you care to some degree, does it not?

    Sorry to burst your bubble, and though it is a nice little memorial, it would be better used to commemorate the lives of the thousands of starving children that died during this furor.

    As you say, Apple designed the technology, not Steve Jobs

    EDIT: Downrate more! Let's see just how many points I can lose for expressing a logical argument on the internet!

    You really don't know much about all the things he personally accomplished in his life, do you?
    - Ertrov October 6, 2011, 1:58 pm
    He created the Realm of the Very PC or Android you are using. Dick.
    - CTUDirector October 6, 2011, 6:05 pm
    Not to mention the Zune.
    - Ertrov October 6, 2011, 6:11 pm
    Thank you for mentioning that. Or very well any mp3 player.
    - CTUDirector October 6, 2011, 6:19 pm
    Tell me all about them then. And maybe read the article, in particular the part where it says how Jobs didn't invent the iPod...
    Just because I use technology manufactured by a company of which he was the CEO doesn't mean an obligation to be upset about his death. Did you make a commemorative post for Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, or any of the other innovators whose products you use almost daily?

    Also, couldn't care less about the downrating, go crazy guys. It just says a lot about the lack of your abilities to form a good rebuttal.
    - Jackylegs October 6, 2011, 7:08 pm
    If it weren't for the company that Steve Jobs and Steve Wosniak built from scratch (literally, they built the first Mac in Steve's parents garage), there would be no iPod. Steve Jobs laid the foundations for Apple, as well as continuing to revolutionize it through the years. Do you really think he just sat back in his office and let the designers build all of Apple's products with no input from himself? If that were the case, he wouldn't have passionately stayed on with Apple when he was dying from cancer.

    Steve has always been behind the wheel of Apple's products whenever he was CEO. He's poured his time, life, wealth, and health into Apple, so don't diminish his contribution to the world to some overrated rich spokesperson.

    After being fired from Apple, he managed to create another computer company (later bought by Apple) as well as turn Pixar into what it is today. Steve Jobs was a visionary not only because of his brilliant method of combining art and technology while also creating user-friendly interfaces, but mainly because of his will, determination, and passion to make the most out of his life, to improve the lives of others.

    Sure, Steve wasn't the sole creator of the iPod, but do you really think Henry Ford single-handedly designed every car Ford produced during his lifetime?
    - Ertrov October 6, 2011, 7:20 pm
    there are more significant people in computing that Steve jobs...
    - BEASTY October 7, 2011, 3:07 pm
    And there are better writers than J.K. Rowling, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't consider her to be a great writer.
    - Ertrov October 7, 2011, 4:35 pm
    I fail to see how this is a Logical argument, based upon the fact it is on a Memorial page. A logical argument shows a valid point based around a central COHERENT AND RELEVANT subject.

    Put simply, besides being dead, how do dead babies have anything to do with Steve Jobs? A man who quit college to change the world? I am no Apple fanatic, but he was still a good man and a legend.

    The way your 'logical argument' is put forth, Steve Jobs went out and slaughtered scores of innocent children? And at what point did he become a tyrannical German chancellor?
