    Regardless of personal opinion of either the man himself or his company, it can be said that Steve Jobs was dam good at making great looking and working products. One of the co-founders of Apple, Jobs has passed away at the age of 56 leaving behind a company that he helped build and lead to success twice in the last 36 years.

    Cause of death is unknown but personally, my thoughts go out to his family and colleagues.

    What makes it really sad I think is that he was so close to seeing one of his greatest ideals realised with the release of iCloud impending. It was something that he seems to have been working on for the last 14 years if this video from 1997 is to be believed.

    He will surely be missed. A great visionary indeed. News really caught me by surprise even though I knew he was in "bad" shape. RIP Steve!

    Didn't want to believe it when I first heard this early this evening, as I figured it was just another one of those internet rumors that constantly spread about him on a fairly regular basis. Sad to see that it is indeed true, and he will definitely be missed. Great innovator and a very forward thinking person. Rest in peace to him, and best wishes to his family and friends.

    Your mom is falsely credited on the inventions she made.

    He's rich, famous and dead. The rules say you have to mourn him, even if you didn't care much for him when he was still breathing.

    He died of pancreatic cancer, a disease he has been suffering and battling since being diagnosed in 2004.

    He truly was a visionary and brought to light technology that we could only have dreamed of having at the time.

    RIP Mr. Jobs. :(

    Didn't think anybody would mention his name here. Quite shocked that someone did actually.

    RIP Al Davis. You made, and then ruined, and then started to make again the team that I love.

    The Raiders

    The world has lost two pioneers, one in Sports one in Personal Computing, doesn't matter what order you rank them in terms of importance. What matters is that they changed the world for a great deal of us.
