    The iPhone 4S is probably the last product Steve ever worked on. it's very sad as it's almost like he stayed alive during that keynote so he could see it get released; I can only imagine how the executives were feeling that day. :(

    I'm getting the 4S and this is a bit silly but it will have that sentimental value to me. Amazing product by an inspirational man.

    RIP Steve Jobs, my hero :apple:

    I'm a recent Windows convert and don't have as much invested in Apple, but I kinda feel the same way... :apple:

    It's already been revealed that Steve left Apple with plans for devices for at least 4 years out....I would think Steve at least had his hand in the next iphone and probably the ideas of many more to come.

    To think this is the last product Steve had any hand in would be foolish imo

    I would wager that apple plans their products out a good deal in advance. So it is quite likely that Steve had a hand in the next iPhone, if not the one after that.

    I see where you're coming from, but I doubt that's the last product he worked on or how he spent his last hours. Your guess is as good as mine, but I really doubt it went down like that.

    Steve jobs will have been involved in products we may not see for another few years yet.

    He didn't become a legend for his hardware and software, that stuff was done by others, Steve Jobs was a visionary, and his effects and plans will be felt by the world for years to come.

    Apparently he left them with 4 years of planning on how to proceed, so I'd say it's far from the last thing he worked on. I'm sure he's had his hands on the iPad 3, new iMacs and MacBooks , pretty much everything. Apple doesn't just develop one thing at a time

    The future is uncertain yet exciting at the same time.
    It won't be the same without SJ, but with Apple university , I hope his vision and beliefs live on ...

    It's a bit weird though. I feel like I've just lost a friend.
    So having a 4s is special indeed.

    Regardless of whether it's true or not, of course Apple will say that...

    Make no mistake about it...more than reassuring the public about the direction of Apple, that statement was meant to reassure the shareholders and investors.

    I think Cook and Ive will know what to change and what to keep. Have some faith in them :)

    I just got an iPad2 this weekend, and I feel the same way about that product b/c Steve came back from sick leave just to release it.

    Trust me, I know that's why they released it (I work on Wall St.) but it does not mean it isn't true

    I know they are all brilliant, i'm just saying that Steve is no longer helping them, and won't be able to give the products as much 'magic' anymore. Then again, it's not just Steve that makes Apple.

    He's basically the one that makes Apple products look as beautiful as they do.

    From Wikipedia:
    He is the leading designer and conceptual mind behind the iMac, titanium and aluminum PowerBook G4, G4 Cube, MacBook, unibody MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

    I had the same thought. :)

    Now that we realize what the presentation team was dealing with emotionally during the announcement, I find the one "reserved" chair up front to be quite touching.
