    It's a sad, sad day for the tech world as we remember one of the greatest innovators in modern history. The outpouring of comments across the social web makes it obvious just how influential he truly was.

    For those who have not seen it yet, there is a brief, but thoughtful statement on the apple site along with a place to send your own comments to directly - http://www.apple.com/stevejobs/

    I was just going to post a thread about it myself and found this one. It's very sad, beyond describable, and at first I couldn't believe it. Feels like a family member died. It's nice to see all the beautiful things people are writing abut this legendary genius on Twitter.

    As @maddox wrote:

    "I've never really felt or understood what 'end of an era' means."

    Well, maybe now we understand.

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs. I can say with absolute certainty that you will never be forgotten.

    (CEO of facebook) Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
    Google Larry Page:
    He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.
    Obama:
    Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

    Bill Gates: The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
    For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

    The negative feedback received by Apple from their last press conference on their latest Iphone 4S was sure an example of drawbacks without Steve Jobs to save the wrong moves done by his company men.

    I just read it on the news, and I'm shocked - I knew he was ill, and that he had stepped down because of this. but I didn't expect this to happen that soon.
    He had a long struggle which he fought so brave, right until the end.

    truly an inspiring genius

    I'm surprised at how moved I am. It's always sad to see a creative like this expire—especially when it seems too soon. Hopefully he has created an environment at Apple that will allow new ingenuity to flourish.

    It's a pretty powerful statement that a website as influential as Apple's has stripped down its entire home page to this:

    Quite true, Mike! It's nice to have a spiritual persective here.

    I have a different perspective on his death, then most. I won't share, yet.

    I was dumbstruck when I heard the news, not that it was a huge surprise having seen his last public appearance. Whether one likes Apple or not, he's done a lot for the tech world. I've always liked the brand, by and large.

    @Ralph: Me too. I didn't think I'd react emotionally to it, but it does affect me quite a bit.

    R.I.P Steve Jobs. I knew that he had stood down from his previous role at Apple back in August but didn't expect him to pass away so soon. I had expected him to be at Apple for many years to come. The IT industry has been robbed of an inspiring person.

    I do wonder how Apple will fare now, he was a big influence and obviously came up with alot of brilliant innovations and products. I have to say, there wasn't much time between him leaving the company and passing away, I guess he must have knew. Very sad.

    R.I.P. Steve.

    It is sad to see such an innovator pass away furthermore when he was so young and if he could have done so much more.

    Regarding Apple, well, maybe they have learnt one or two things from Steve Jobs. Wether you like it or not, he did bring a lot of ideas and innovation. The future will tell.

    RIP Steve.

    It will be interesting to see how Apple copes with this. It had long been regarded that without Steve Jobs, Apple was just another corporate face

    Lightbulb Steve Jobs has passed away

    Yeah, sorry I'm so late posting. I just found the post and agree we will all miss his inovative spirit. R.I.P Steve. Touch screen technology certainly has taken a giant leap forward and unlike most, I'm sure Apple will remain top draw for some time. There can be no doubt that he has left his mark on Apple, one they won't forget for some time.
    Thinking back I always thougt of Steve Jobs as the vilain who overpriced the original MAC OS and gave the world to Bill Gates by doing so. I realize now that it was only his apparent presance as the face of Apple at the time and not necessarilly true. MAC OS, $450 and WINDOWS OS $99.95 is all I can remember and that I was very upset when Microsoft lost a legal battle over their browser installation INTERNET EXPLORER on computers that he clearly outbid the other contenders by price alone. The resulting browser wars didn't stop the continued development of computer technology, it acctually added further development. Though Bill Gates may be conscidered the father/big daddy of the computer world today it will only be because of his grasp of what people realy want, 'a lower price'. Steve Jobs acctually got the 'CokeaCola' principle in the end and was not reduced along with Apple to ashes. They are a force to be reconed with and that is due in no small part to Steve Job's resilance. Many would have givin up a long time ago. I know he said it right, 'You do what you love to do, and that's the bottom line'.
    Thanks forever, Mr. Steve Jobs. We will all miss you dearly.
