quote: It's not like we're awing at a celebrity. Just giving respects to someone who helped computing come a long way. The same thing will be done for Gates, Wozniak, Torvalds and many more.
quote: I usually prefer competitors' products over Apple's. But the cheaper, more open-ended knockoffs that I love wouldn't be this cool without Apple's popularization and great execution of new technologies. Jobs was a big part of that, and I'm gonna miss the guy.
quote: Michael Dell and Steve Ballmer who are worth roughly $15 billion, and Larry Ellison who is worth nearly $30 billion, all of whom are worth far more than Jobs who's worth around $7 billion. Chump change among CEOs. Do you level the same criticisms at them?
quote: Yes, the same Michael Dell who's company does nothing innovative
quote: Also, way to completely miss the point and arguments of the post, congrats.
quote: I'm just pointing out how far in the minority you are in your way of thinking.
quote: I guess you can comfort yourself in the thought that you aren't a "sellout", or whatever nerd hipsters such as yourself like to think of themselves.
quote: I was just pointing out how your love of Apple toys was causing you to spew a bunch of evangelistic things about their creator.
quote: You go on believing we're all just "nerd hipsters", dumbass
quote: It's all about who can make the coolest phone or pad for teenagers to fawn over.
quote: The things you keep ignoring is that he was always working and that he was worth a fraction of other big tech CEOs.
quote: Android phones or tablets literally would not exist
quote: It seems like most people here and nearly everyone on Android or other non-Apple sites readily accept all of this while you totally dismiss it.
quote: You must be a pretty smart guy to see above it all as well as you do.
quote: Bull. Gates donated tons to charity while he was still CEO. All while changing the face of the entire planet and revolutionizing the human race! Dude how long do you think it takes to write a check and have a letter drafted? It's not a massive effort!
quote: And please, I'm laughing at your attempt to make coming up with consumer toys a seemingly herculean effort.
quote: If you want to hate on a CEO, hate on any of the numerous MBAs with no talent or vision for anything except a golden parachute when they retire or get fired. Your hatred is completely misplaced, especially considering that the desktop PC and the phone you use are direct and indirect products of his work.
quote: Every major tech company is either copying them or iterating upon what they've done in
quote: Your hatred is completely misplaced, especially considering that the desktop PC and the phone you use are direct and indirect products of his work.
quote: There's him on the tech/product side and Bill Gates on the charity side, and not much else...
quote: And how is making cartoons of talking robots and animals for stupid little kids worthy of so much praise anyway?
quote: Well that's certainly Apple's position. Regurgitating that crap doesn't make it any less irrelevant. Go file a few more lawsuits if it will make you guys feel better lol.
quote: No I'm sorry but Bill Gates unified and standardized the entire computing world, hell, the world in general. His achievements both in technology AND charitable donations absolutely crushes anything Jobs has done.
quote: Jobs was a CEO, not an R&D manager. He hasn't gotten his hands dirty developing or innovating since the 1980's. Great salesman? Sure. Shrewd businessman? We know that all too well.
quote: Nah, the downratings just mean that there are people as stupid as you are.
quote: OK this time you crossed the line.
quote: Jobs didn't create Pixar. He guided it's growth and it's direction after he bought it. Lucas was on the verge of just folding it up and closing the doors. Implying that Jobs had NOTHING to do with Pixar's capabilities is like implying that Walt Disney had no guidance over Disneyland or Disney World. Disney did none of the design work or "grunt work" of either, but he did guide the teams that did. Same as Jobs with Pixar.
quote: He simply bought Pixar from Lucas, how is that a big deal? And how is making cartoons of talking robots and animals for stupid little kids worthy of so much praise anyway? So he bought Pixar, but FUCKING deal!You make it seems as if Jobs himself developed the advanced mobile computing microchip process, screen technology, CGI graphics technology OH, and while he was at it, he singlehandedly invented the PC. Jobs was a CEO, not an R&D manager. He hasn't gotten his hands dirty developing or innovating since the 1980's. Great salesman? Sure. Shrewd businessman? We know that all too well.
quote: sorry iphones and ipad are not life altering the pc was the only life altering thing to come out of apple thanks to Steve Woz.
quote: I for one would LOVE this future, where I can just take my phone to a dock and run Starcraft 2 or something else like that, how awesome would that be?
quote: Okay admit it, you're actually Tony or Pirks aren't you? I mean come on man, I can practically hear you creaming in your shorts over Apple. Get a room!
quote: The smartphone will likely be the PC, in that you plug it in with a cable (or it even docks wirelessly) and all of your other desktop interfaces (large monitor, keyboard, etc) are driven by the smartphone.
quote: RIP. now who am i going to make fun of?
quote: Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the Computer Division of Lucasfilm before it was acquired by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 1986. The Walt Disney Company bought Pixar in 2006 at a valuation of $7.4 billion; the transaction made Jobs the largest shareholder in Disney.

quote: How do you feel about Bill Gates trying to screw Paul Allen out of his shares and cut him out of the business because he had cancer and felt he wasn't working hard enough?
quote: This is my last comment on Dailytech, reading negative comments on an obituary is utterly depressing and tells us quite a bit about how disconnected some of you lot have become from decency.
quote: I never really agreed with his business practices but he contributed a lot.
quote: If anyone had said that the iPhone was one of the most important products to be introduced to the market in the first 10 years of this century I would have been skeptical, but the fact is it was.
quote: I really hope this is a joke.
quote: Whatever the final methods end up being, the fact of the matter is that these devices and interfaces will reach an even greater number of users than the desktop paradigm that has been around for almost thirty years did.
quote: The only shortsighted one I see here is you, who views mobile devices and desktops as being somehow mutually exclusive.
quote: Seems you've forgotten the lisa, mac portable, Pippin, newton, eworld, mobileme, hell I think they had a phone at one point even before the iphone.
quote: Try to get yourself a good job so you can stop running up my taxes..
quote: Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. 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.By building one of the planet's most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve's wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.
quote: Dude Brandon...bad form man. Really bad form.
quote: My hate? It's Obama's hate I was referring to. Obama hates individuals like Steve Jobs. He hates innovators and achievers. It's just really insulting that Brandon chose to post that. I mean really. He's just using Jobs death as an excuse for more media time to release a statement that a) he didn't write and b) he doesn't even believe in anyway.
quote: Don't even compare Jobs to John Lennon. John Lennon atleast spoke out on social issues, and tried to affect those around him. Jobs, with all of his wealth, never even spoke out on social issues or even donated any of his wealth to charity. I don't care what you say about your idol, but he was a douchebag that only cared about himself and his precious Apple.
quote: This would be a good opportunity to IP ban all the nasty people on this site.
quote: We lost Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash.Now we have no Jobs, no Hope, and no CashRIP Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash...LOL
