    Completely agree! Apple brought us the Mac and I am so greatful for it inspired me to want to be on the computer and do amazing graphical things. Thanks Mr. Jobs!

    I am unexpectedly sad about Steve Jobs’ death. Since I didn’t know him personally, I never thought I’d feel this sad. When I think back to the impact his innovations have brought to the world, I can’t help but think, what a loss. What other fabulous innovations might he have brought about? My condolences to his family.

    Most people think of Steve as a business man, a computer geek, and a leader. I think he was more than that…he was an artist. He showed us all how to think outside the box and how to live courageously. Will miss him tremendously.

    Even though I’m not a user of any Apple products, I totally agree with you Cathy. The world has lost a brilliant man.

    That little square mac with the disc drive was my first computer at my first office job in 1986, it had such a little screen, I don’t know how I was able to even see it, but of course i was younger then too :). That was the beginning of my computer experience and it is amazing how far it has all come since then. He was a true entreprenuer and visionary, it makes me wonder what we won’t have in the future because he is no longer here. Hopefully he passed on some of his ideas and inventions.

    Amen! So sad today yet so thankful to have been inspired–not just by products but by an attitude, vision, and commitment. My husband and 12 year old son actually cried. I hope Steve is up in Heaven feeling the love! And, I hope his family feels surrounded by prayer and hope.

    I’m a latecomer to the Apple party, but after I purchased my first Apple product this spring there will be no going back. A genius is definitely gone from this world.

    The first computer I ever purchased out of college with my own money was a Macintosh in the 80’s. Wish I had taken a picure of it – would have loved to scrap that memory. Very sad day.

    I can’t decide if it’s weird or expected that I kind of burst into tears last night in the car when NPR ran the news. But there you have it. Sigh.

    Jewel, I too wish I had kept my first Mac, a IIsi. I tossed it one summer trying to make room for stuff. That and my old Quadra 700. Sigh.

    Elizabeth, when my daughter came downstairs with her laptop (MacBook Pro from 2003, of course) and showed me the Apple home page, I started crying too. I just think those products have had such a profound impact on people, myself included. I am a Mac. Im part of the Cult. I believe, you know? Its very personal. For sure.

    So sad. Heard today that he dropped out of college because he wasn’t sure what direction he wanted to go and didn’t want to keep wasting his parent’s hard-earned money. Apparently not everyone needs a college degree in order to experience phenomenal success in their life. 🙂

    My son said the billboard out by Disney World in Orlando has just the apple and where it said IPad, it now says, “ISad”.

    Great quote I saw today:
    “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented”

    A huge loss to the world, to technology, and to creativity.
    I am so thankful I was able to live at the same time he was here and to benefit from what he did!
