Re: Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple, Passes Away At 56

I kinda figured he had Pancreatic cancer. When they talked aboit the surgery he'd had awhile back and that it was many hours long, I assumed it was a Whipple (Pancreaticoduodenectomy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). After he began to get more gaunt and weak looking I figured it wouldn't be to much longer.

Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

RIP Steve

+1 RIP Steve

Even though i dont use an iphone (which in reality is a great device) he is/was a great inventor. If it wasnt for him we all be carrying very old technology (blackberrys) and most likely android would never have been created. As well as many kid movies (pixar) which my son loves. He made everyone else be on their toes or be left behind

Re: Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple, Passes Away At 56

Steve Jobs was much more than just the iPhone, give the man a little credit where credit is due. In addition to introducing us to desktop publishing and computer animated movies, Jobs should be credited with creating the first commercially successful computer. He was a great invetor with a lot of dreams and visions he made come true. I am no iPhone fan boy but I give credit where it is due and realize what he has done for this industry. Roger MacNamee who worked close with Jobs says' " the sum of which put him in a place where no one else has ever been before. To me he is of his era what Thomas Edison was to the beginning of the 20th century." I would have to agree with that statement, look at his many contributes from the iPad, iPhone, iPod, Macintosh Computer and much more.
