    We all know Steve Jobs, the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple.Inc. died on October 5, 2011, at the age of 56 which is too young for someone to die. The cause of his death was pancreatic cancer which he endured for almost a decade. His illness was diagnosed during 2004.

    R.I.P. to the man who brought change to the whole world.

    56 isn't so bad, some people in Africa wish they'd make it to 32 ._.

    I would agree with that post on another forum, he is not on the same list as people like Mozart, Einstein, Newton, Michael Jackson, etc etc but I dont think he is put on that list. And he deserves to be mentioned in the news, that doesn't put him on the same rank as those historical persons nor I think anyone is trying to make him that important.

    But it is still recognized company by everyone, everyone knows Apple even though not everyone knew him, I didn't as I dont follow Apple and their productions for obvious reasons. So yes he deserved to be on the news, maybe that post was for someone who made a monument or smth, we have monuments of people we barely know so I think that is still fine.

    So, apparently the WBC is going to protest his funeral. Hopefully this time people get fed up with their antics, and have them lynched.

    I'm not trying to devalue other, past funerals, but this isn't the time for their bastard hatemongering.

    He was a great at his job and did many things that most people would never have even dreamed about. I felt really bad when i read about his death..

    This thread deserves a Bill Gates motivational poster.

    Seriously, though, I am sad to hear that. While I have to agree with the sentiments in the quote LordDz provided, I believe, thanks to his commercial genius, worldwide technological efficiency received quite a boost. I would have expected to hear more from him prior to his death, though. He passed away quite silently, in circumspect.

    For some reason, and, please, not to be a dick or anything, but I couldn't help but to imagine the administration staff of Microsoft rick-rolling the admin staff of Apple now with a rick-roll link named 'Microsoft's Eulogy for Steve Jobs.' XD
