    This is sad, but he lived a great live. He also knew he was going to die, and I hope he spent his final days surrounded by his family and everything he loved.

    Especially by those who loved him. So sorry for his family, particularly kid #1.

    This is very sad, he was a genius, and ran his company extremely well. He will be sorely missed.

    Yes, his legacy of child labor will live on:

    Will child labour claims stop you buying Apple?
    An audit of Apple's suppliers has found all sort of transgressions. But will we ever take notice of the real reasons that our cheap electronics are so inexpensive?

    Was your iPod built on the back of child labour? That's something everyone should be wondering after Apple said an audit of factories highlighted numerous failures at factories that supply it - and other companies - with electronics.

    The report, which is posted online, lists a litany of failures - including several instances of 15-year-olds being employed by the unnamed suppliers, nearly two-thirds of factories failing to pay workers properly, long hours and poor environmental and safety credentials. The company, not surprisingly, says it wants to "eliminate" these violations.

    You can take several positions on the affair: that it's reprehensible that Apple should ever work with companies that treat employees so badly, that it's positive that an audit had picked up such transgressions, that Apple has to really up its game and make changes.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That's not his legacy. That's the tech industry's legacy. It just becomes easier to tag big companies to it, particularly one.

    I am wondering if Google is going to do something with their home page to make a tribute to him...

    Great sentiments, Ockham.

    I bought my first Apple product in 1994 when I purchased the greatest personal computer ever made, the Mac. I was very fortunate to have once worked for an all-Macintosh dealer. Desktop Publishing was becoming very big in those days and it was fantastic to work for a dealer who was leading the way with the Mac. It was a privilege to work with Apple products. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Steve Jobs as he was not with the company at that time, but I did get to attend MacWorld in San Francisco in 1991. Nothing like spending a week with some of the most innovative and motivated people. While his name may not mean anything to you, I got to meet Guy Kawasaki who was the Macintosh Evangelist. MSNBC or CNBC has shown a program that documents Apple and Guy is featured in the program.

    The loss of Steve leaves a big huge in the world. He will be missed... greatly.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Google is in bed with Android model phones, competitors with the iPhone... so it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't.

    (it wouldn't surprise me if they did either).
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I hadn't thought about this. But surely it will, don't you think?
