    To say I'm shocked it happened so soon is an understatement, I cant believe it was that far gone, but a video of him some months back has shown how frail he was.

    I am not an Apple fan, but I honour & seriously respect him for what he did for the company & revolutionised the music market & inspired so many other devices to compete.

    So from me, to Steve Jobs, Rest In Peace, you were a man of sheer brilliance.

    Thoughts to his family.

    RIP Steve Jobs.

    Thank you for saving our household from hearing aid beige PC towers and badly thought out unintegrated tech. Our lives and our environment are richer as a result. Meant I never had to own an MS Vista machine or a Blackberry, so my sincere thanks for that! Legend.

    RIP. Whatever people think of Apple, the man gave his all to them, to the last breath it would seem.

    I hadnt realised he was that bad, but cancer of any form is horrific. He certainly made his mark & changed the technology we use, even if i dont agree with a lot of Apples' approach.

    The end of an era, RIP.

    My uncle died on pancreatic cancer in 2003, it's one of the most invasive and aggresive malignant cancers and not alot can be done about it.

    RIP.

    Do you think it was the release of the 4GS that was keeping him alive? not being silly or anything. Honestly i know of people who have wanted to see something soo much (grandaughter wedding etc) that they have held on then when its done they have died.

    Who knows mate. Most of us learned of his passing from the very devices he put his life into.
