Only 56 years old.
Wow. End of an era!
Holy cow! RIP Steve.
Rest in peace, mister Jobs...
He put up quite a good fight, but pancreatic cancer is a tough one .
It's sad but no surprise.
I was joking this morning about how apple will die once Steve Jobs is dead referring to lack of excitement in their recent product launch. kinda of ironic ...
Wow, just heard and LisaB beat me to it by fifteen minutes, so sad, I am glad I wasn't the one to break the news, my wife heard it through FacePlant and I just checked the news. Pancreatic cancer really really sucks, my prayers are with his wife, Laurene, their four children and his close friends.
Wow! I imagine the doctors told him that he had a month or two to live, hence the rapid succession 6 weeks ago.
His contributions to this world will not be forgotten! It is sad to see such an amazing mind go away! Rest in peace Steve Jobs.
I was just about to go out and buy a Mac.
Insanely bad news.
I'm surprised that so many people are surprised by his death since it was well known that he had been battling cancer and was reported to have been losing the battle. When he named his successor, it was bad news.
I don't keep up with these things. I just recently heard the Apple II is out.
I never knew this
i'm not surprised at all. there's a photo circulating of him looking like a concentration camp victim with a guy helping him stand. i guess some people may have an idea that if you're rich enough, you can buy whatever medical assistance you need to keep going. but unfortunately, we're just nowhere near that advanced yet.
It's no surprise, but still hit me like a ton of bricks! The tech world (and entire world) will surely miss Steve! I hope someone starts a cancer foundation in his name.
There are several foundations devoted to pancreatic cancer research, treatment and support.
Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research
National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation
No endorsement expressed or implied. I have not checked them out.
Not only was Steve Jobs a key component in the founding of Apple but also Pixar. Both Pixar and Apple have had such acts of brilliance in the last decade that will never be forgotten. He was a genius who will live on in this generation and the next.
