Default RIP Steve Jobs

I put this in here, as i am sure a lot of the items he has helped create have given many people on this site some sort of entertainment ... Sad to see him go.

Everyone on this forum is using a piece of computer hardware that Steve Jobs helped pioneer: the mouse.

A vast majority of people on this forum have paid money to watch, rent or purchase films from a studio that he helped build: PIXAR Animation.

He helped revolutionize home computing with the iMac and iBook.

He pulled digital music into the mainstream with the iPod.

He revolutionized cell phone technology with the iPhone and the industry has only recently caught up with him.

He created an entirely new market with the iPad - something that most people thought was going to be Apple's biggest embarrassment has revolutionized personal computing... again.

I think it will be decades before anyone can fill his shoes, if ever. I also fear that this might be the beginning of a long, slow decline for Apple.

Definitely very sad to see him go. Even though I never fully bought into Apple (still use a PC for my serious computing at home & at work), I do love my iPad & iPhone.

Hopefully, not, Nate. They mentioned how they have a terrific team of people who all work to make his visions become reality so hopefully the guy he put in place when he stepped down in August can see them through this period. I imagine he already had more ideas set in motion before he stepped down.

What a great inspiration he is of what a person can do and achieve in such a short span of life.
