    No wonder Tim and Phil looked horrible yesterday. I'm sure they knew then.

    Imagine having to get up on stage and present knowing that your best friend and founder of the company was on his deathbed.

    Steve Jobs changed the computer industry, the phone industry, everything. He's touched all of our lives. I just want to say, congratulations to you Steve, to a life well lived.

    I almost sensed something wrong during the keynote yesterday.

    Too soon.
