Oh, that's too bad :smileysad: He was such an inspiring person and really led Apple to greener pastures.

Steve worked at HP for a time.  Bill Hewlett actually lent him some spare parts from which he built his first Apple I computer.

This acknowledgment is buried too deep on the HP web site.  Would have been nicer to see Steve Jobs on the HP Home Page (being that he did work at HP long long ago).   Let's show some class.

"....Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new...."  Steve Jobs.  RIP

Saddest thing that happenned to the computer industry.

I'm impressed by his responsibilities on jobs. He started from Apple and ended at Apple as well. As long as he has the energy, he will work, until the end of his life. Not much people could do it as how he did it.

Very rightly said, he had made his impact what more one would need than to be remembered
