RIP Steve Jobs

Post by Demon Lord Ghirahim on Wed Oct 05, 2011 8:56 pm

It's true.

I don't endorse Apple products, but he's still an influential person, no matter how you look at it.

Sad

EDIT: He died of pancreatic cancer.

No. No. Just no. He can't be. No...He is...No! Steve Jobs...Dead? No...

This man was a true visionary. From the original Mac, to the iPad, he revolutionized technology and the way we view and interact with it. Where would technology and computers be without him? How would the way we use technology be different if it wasn't for this amazing man? He was a major role model in my life, and a true inspiration for me, and many others. I sit here crying as I type this, because the world has lost a true genius.

Rest in peace, Steve. And thank you.



“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Steve Jobs

Agreed. Steve Jobs was one of the most influential people in today's society. We'd still be in the technological dark ages if it weren't for his genius. Apple fan, PC fan, Linux fan (do those exists?), it doesn't make a difference.
So goodbye Steve Jobs, and thank you for the amazing technology you've created.

Oh and for all the Apple haters, Steve Jobs helped found Pixar. So if you like any of those movies, then you've found a reason to care about his death.
R.I.P. Steve Jobs.

Shocked I did not know that.

But yeah, it is sad that he died. He SHOULD have gone to Cancer Treatment Centers of America. He had the money. Probably would've saved his life.

Why must the good die young? He was battling cancer for long time...well, at least he's in a better place.

Ed, his cancer was terminal. He had one of the deadliest cancers ever. And yes he did have the money and he went all over but there is no cure for what he had. He survived eight years with that cancer when other people would have died.

Oh. Well, I didn't know THAT either.

By the way, I heard from Deku today on the way out the door that the Westboro Baptist Church in Alabama was planning on picketing Steve Jobs' funeral. For what reason, I do not know.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/under-god/post/westboro-baptist-church-uses-iphone-to-announce-steve-jobs-funeral-protest/2011/10/06/gIQAJqBjPL_blog.html

Here's a link to the story.

They're picketing it because he "didn't give his grace to God" and he "brought nothing but evil upon the earth".

the irony is that they sent the message to Twitter via an iPhone.

I don't try to figure those Westboro guys out. Frankly, the only way we can shut them up is if we tune them out. And why tune out people who make such great news stories? I digress, that is a rant for another topic.

As for Steve Jobs, the worst part about all of this is that as soon as he died, there were jokes made. They weren't all good, but they were there. He was like Osama: there was no period of people saying "Dude, too soon." Except (as far as we know) Steve didn't cause 9-11. I'm tempted to say I'm not a huge apple fan, but I'd be telling you that with my iPhone next to me. So ya. From this point, I think everyone has said everything better than I could.

Oh whatever f*ck those religious zealots. There's no way God would want them to picket funerals like that. Zealots piss me off.

The west Burough guys fill me with rage at the mention of them for being
A:Ridiculously and pointlessly hateful
B:Completely stupid.
C:Half of the stuff they're "protesting" against isn't even in the bible of their own religion.
D:They are extremely stupid.
E:They're pretty damn stupid.
