Love him or hate him, you can't deny the numerous impacts he had on the industry. A victim of Pancreatic Cancer.

Steve's biological father was a Syrian Muslim, his mother an American Jew, his adoptive dad an American and mother a Christian Armenian, and he was a practicing Zen Buddhist. Talk about the most interesting man in the world! RIP Steve, the world needs more visionary and innovative people like you.

RIP - I can't stand Apple computers, but he did have an enourmous impact on the digital world.

RIP Steve Jobs



Also, why do we feel the need to preempt our condolences with opinion? I notice it in threads about passed musicians, and again in this thread..."I don't like what he did, but..." Nobody asked you...if you can't offer condolences without injecting negativity, don't bother.

Was I being too negative when I said I didn't use his products?

Not really but it was unnecessary...

Listen, I may have even done something similar in the past...doesn't make it ok.

Gotcha. I'll keep my opinions to myself from here on in. I'll stick to posting only facts.

If it was a "What do you think of Apple products?" thread, that's one thing...but someone died.

I wasn't necessarily coming down on MG...even said he wasn't being negative...but I obviously stepped on his toes.

I was just wondering why we (WE, including myself) sometimes feel the need to preempt an offer of sympathy with our own personal, negative opinion. To me, it's like saying, "I think your work sucked, sorry you're dead." We tend to get comfortable offering unsolicited commentary on message boards, which I get, but we're not talking about which Iron Maiden album is better here...someone died. It should be enough to say "RIP" without first saying "I hate what this guy did"...or "I never liked him/her, but..." It comes off self-important...you weren't asked.

Well Shawn, that is an excellent question, I can only speak for myself. I remember stating on Jani Lane thread how I am not a fan of his music but hated the fact that he died because of self destructive behaviour. Maybe I should left the comment about his music but I felt I was acknowledging the fact that it was a tragedy that a human being died because he couldn't overcome his demons.

Also does not help I am an insentitve jerk!!

Can't say I didn't see it coming as his health was obviously deteriorating despite claims to the contrary. Definitely sad news though. I use PCs for the most part (not necessarily by choice) but I've always had a soft spot for Apple products. I also collect old computers and I have quite a few old Apple II computers and compact Macs that I maintain, as well as the first Mac I ever bought (a IIsi for $20 at a thrift shop). Nerdy and proud. Very Happy

RIP Steve. I just wonder how Apple will fare without him. I expect they'll continue to grow and do just fine, but it should be an interesting next couple of months and years ahead.

Steve spent a very long time creating the road map for Apple and choosing the team that would follow in his footsteps, this was done prior to him stepping down.

Apple's momentum should carry them just fine going forward, as will Pixar.
