+1. I have serious issues with Apple's politics, but Steve Jobs was an icon and will go down in history as the true visionary he was. RIP:sad:Was to be expected :sad: Even though I hate Apple and their politics I've to admit that Steve Jobs probably was the most influencing human of the last 10 years. At least he doesn't has to witness how Samsung is overtaking Apple in the next 2-3 years.
Back in the 1980's, Apple was a truly revolutionary company though. I know all to well how they eventually succumbed to the wide-spread nastiness of commercialism, but I prefer to remember those older days.+1.

First Apple I owned was this:Oh man. A true idol from my youth! I so well remember the days when I worked as a post-graduate researcher at the uni back in those days of old, and we were all soooooo happy to see those terrible IBM computers being replaced by Apple II's, and thereafter, the lovely Apple Macintosh... the guy was a true visionary. :sad:
Apple Macintosh 1984 - :hearts: :worship: :bowdown: :inlove:
I knew he was already very sick indeed for quite a while and had to resign from the Apple board some time ago due to his illness... RIP, Steve. :sad: :sad: :sad:
Several bridges too far. Brilliant innovator and businessman, but not really an amazing inventor. Pretty much all of his products were simply elegant refinements of other people's ideas. His talent was in making his refinements both distinctive and definitive.Somebody made a reference today comparing him to Thomas Edison and I found it apt.
