    As we all know Steve Jobs passed away earlier today (may his soul rest in peace, his visionary genius will be missed)

    We also all know the 4S will be released next week

    so I think a case designer/maker should create a specific case with a picture of Steve Jobs on the back and maybe some text such as:

    "Remember his Legacy"

    "iPhone 4S, in loving memory of Steve Jobs"

    "iPhone 4 Steve"

    I would definitely buy one of these, and it should be released alongside the 4S on Oct. 14


    heres a quick one i made myself:

    if you cant read it, the text says "stay hungry, stay foolish" its a quote from Steve Jobs Stanford graduation speech (a video of the speech is on macrumors front page)

    or something more subtle like 1955-2011 (more subtle than a picture of him).

    I'm sure someone will but it would seem like they would be profiting on a persons death...

    If anyone should do it, it should be Apple themselves. Make a special tribute case, Apple.

    sadly there it always a bad side, hopefully Apple will release something like this and include them in the 4S packaging

    I would like a case that just makes the back look like the old "Think different." posters with this one featuring Steve Jobs with "1955-2011" on it.

    And for those of us who prefer caseless, the iPhone itself is his legacy.

    True, I think Apple is his biggest legacy though.

    Very nice, I just think the text on the main Apple page with Steve would look even better.

    I think that would be a really tacky thing to do. The phone is enough, it was his vision, and should be a better reminder than any case. Apple could make a donation to the the treatment of cancer under his name, that alone would be a far better use of their resources.

    I wish they did engraving for iP4S now. I'd totally get 1955-2011 on there.

    You could probably get it etched on the back for a good price.

    I think replacing all that legal mumbo jumbo underneath "iPhone" with "1955-2011" would be a nice way of reminding is of Steve without being overly tacky. Maybe even remove "iPhone" altogether.

    Not sure how that helps. Also, you can't just remove the FCC related info that's required by law.

    I must agree, very tacky, but could be nice.
