Steve Jobs, the demanding visionary who understood before anyone else how deeply we would live our lives through our devices, has died at the age of 56, only weeks after resigning as chief executive of computer giant Apple Inc. for health reasons.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.boston.com/Boston/businessupdates/2011/10/steve-jobs-apple-founder-dead/yW26KhPSReaquwjvRwFWiO/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.boston.com/Boston/busines...WiO/index.html</a>

He would have died six months ago if it wasn't for the liver transplant he paid for out of pocket.

Very sad, but I think he probably lived his relatively short life more fully than most people.

Very sad. I saw this quote from him on a website:<br><br>
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. <b>There is no reason not to follow your heart</b>."<br><br>
I thought it was inspirational.

I'd been expecting to hear that any day now as I saw a picture of him a few weeks ago and he looked very frail. He made a techie contribution to this world that helped change it forever. He certainly left his mark on my life and that of my friends and some of my family.

I can't remember where I read it, but someone online mentioned that TMZ was posting tasteless photos of Jobs who was "obviously dying of cancer." I didn't even know he was sick until then, this was about 3 weeks ago. So very sad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Steve Jobs is not with us anymore. Very sad. His last gifts for us are iPhone 4S and iPad 2. People say iPhone 4S stands for "iPhone For Steve". Apple fans should buy this to remember him. I'm wondering what's his diet exactly. Several sources say he's pescetarian, vegan or fruitarian

I don't think we should buy an iPhone for him :/<br><br>
This is sad. He seemed to be rich and privileged without being an asshat, which is rare.
