Steve Jobs is dead - leaving behind a company he started in a garage and managed to build up to being THE most valuable company in the world, beating both Microsoft and Exxon Mobile and all of this with only a fraction of the PC market, 10% of the mobile phones market but over 70% of the mp3 market.
He upgraded the planet to 2.0 and thanks to Steve we're all living on Planet Apple.
Thank you for posting this. I haven't said anything, because I've made comments in so many places. Suffice it to say, although I knew he was critically ill - - I was completely taken aback and deeply saddened when I read the news. In my opinion, Steve Jobs is the Father of Innovation, period. Missed is an understatement...
I captured this from your awesome MyAppleSpace.com site - - your entire site is a FANTASTIC TRIBUTE:
Thanks so much Jen. I was in shock for 2 days, before I finally dropped a tear. It's so sad for humanity that he is no longer here.
Absolutely Jen. I saw someone on creators make the comment how Steve had built up Apple to be the biggest tech company next to Microsoft. Well, someone has not been following the financial news lately. Steve founded Apple, got kicked out, after that the company went down hill, he came back 10 years later when Apple was 3 months away from going bankrupt, 3 months later Apple had it's first profitable quarter in many years, and before he died he had built Apple up to being the biggest company in the world. Not the biggest tech company, and certainly not next to Microsoft, but the biggest company period, beating Xxon Mobile.
Now if that isn't impressive I don't know what is, right? Just, wow.
I recommend the movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley", and I hope they will make more movies about him in the years to come.
Sounds like you need a Mac, fast, and then install Windows via boot camp ! :)
The new Mac minis are dirt cheap. (My horns are showing, I know) :)
Did a light bulb just go on? ! ?
It's awesome how you can run Windows on your Mac so you can still use Mac even if you NEED Windows.
Yeah, we have some of the MAC/Window combos in the family and biz. I just tend to want to go with one OS. I'm sure I'll buy a new MAC soon, been looking.
