Wow. Just wow.

Truly an innovator and visionary. You sparked life into a company that was going in the wrong direction in your absence, but I feel you left Apple in capable hands.

I doubt if there's another CEO in the world whose passing would sadden me so personally.

I honestly feel like I just lost a family member. You guys can call me crazy or whatever, but I'm not good at handling death, of any sort. I feel like he was taken from us too soon, but that's life I guess.

Steve may you rest in peace knowing your legacy will live on forever. We'll miss your snide remarks at keynotes and your black turtlenecks (lol ) and all the innovative products you didn't get a chance to show us. RIP Steve Jobs.

Steve's passing reminded me of the poem, The Dash. Below is an excerpt from that poem.

It's not the date you were born, or the date you died, that really matters. It's "the dash" between those years and what you do with it, to make a difference with your life.

Steve's vision changed how we interact with not only electronics, but also people. His charismatic character would have audiences hanging on to his every word. He was a great leader, visionary, and from what I know a good man.

Steve, the dash between your 56 years was truly amazing.

Reserved seat at keynote

Highlighted at least 3 times. The reserved seat was moving to see even though the news had not been announced.

Listening to CNN and Leander Kahney in a small UK town. With my ever faithful iPad on my knee as always now.

Gutted.

RIP

My thoughts are with your family. There's not a lot of people in this world that I can say that I admire, but he was definitely one of them.

i will say a special prayer this Yom Kippur

i am sorry to the jobs family. We just lost a person who's inspiration was 2nd to none. i am sure he will be missed and there has no one in our time who was as innovative and a role model like steve, my tears for the rest of the week until Yom Kippur will be for him.

Tim Cook's words:

Quote:
Team,

I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email rememberingsteve@apple.com.

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

Tim
