  • I love Apple, but I'm not a fan of Mac. I think its a great software but I'm a Linux guy. As for Jobs, he's an absolute genius. The I-Pod, iPhone, and just about everything that has changed the way we look at technology at today all goes thanks to him. He was a brilliant man.

  • Thank you, Dan @dan1. Loved yours, you had me laughing when you wrote "obsolete that the only thing you could do on it was pay some bills." I can relate to that. Oh, I remember original PRINCE OF PERSIA... Good job, Dan. I agree Jobs had his flaws. A movie like PIRATES OF SILICON VALLEY (you will like it @ghostman) inspire me. From the stand point that we all have the potential to take a thought make it out of our garage, at the age of 16, into something that changes the world. At that time in my life I was a teen mom, so learning the computer helped me give my son a better life. Otherwise I would have had a hard time making it. Now, you can create, edit, and do special effects for major block buster movies, all on a mac. Amazing!
    I enjoy reading personal stories. This one touched me too, was about your father that you wrote @bawnian-dexeus . I am sorry it got stolen. Okay, @bawnian-dexeus this is Very fascinating... you are doing some cool things; love to read more on this - your videos, write your books, scripts??
    Love this, what you wrote @summit10 "old school Apple Mac" and you have great passion.
    Man, I agree with you @thaphoenix , especially in the entertainment industry! Yes, "Long Live the King!"
    Thank you so much for your words @slysnide. I respect and value your view and I will watch this doc*mentary. @slysnide you may want to do some homework about Bill Gates and Microsoft before making statement like "he didn't leech... from another company". I know Steve Jobs had his flaws, its big business. However, Bill Gates and Microsoft did some what I would call unethical business practices, as well. Look more into Gates into the Windows and Jobs.
    Furthermore, to the lawsuit with Bill Gates Microsoft and Caldera "Ray" Noorda's company! Ray Noorda CEO of Novell. Noorda owned the Canopy Group. One of its holdings, Caldera, purchased the Unix assets in 1995 from the Santa Cruz Operation, which had acquired them from Novell. In 1996, it also acquired the Digital Research assets from Novell and immediately brought a lawsuit against BILL GATES/ Microsoft that largely duplicated the claims that the FTC and Department of Justice had pursued in the early 1990s. The lawsuit was ultimately settled in 2000 with Microsoft paying $275 million payment to Caldera. It's business. This is all in the past and lessons for everyone.
    Please understand I believe Bill Gates has done outstanding, he too has changed our world as we know it. Bill Gates is a genus, trend setter, and very generous. And when he passes, he too shall have a tribute to honor him. I hope I am around to express my thoughts then.
    This time now belongs to Steve Jobs

  • Whoops, I meant to write "At a time in my life I was a teen mom, so learning the computer" Not: "At that time in my life" How I wrote that made it sound like I was the same age as Steve Jobs... My ego is screaming at me!
    Please know @slysnide, I feel passion about this because of I am friends with "Ray" Noorda's grand daughter and what all these law suites have done to that family is to this day painful. And I respect your view, your thoughts, and your words. PEACE

  • @Georgia-DiPirro: Except Xerox totally lost out in its future prospects because a patent was acquired by Jobs outside of the Xerox format, despite that Apple's version was the same user friendly interface that Xerox had designed. Noorda was Microsoft's competitor and was already interested in the anti-trust case before the DR-DOS/MS-DOS issue was brought to light in 4/17/92. This is typical of many software companies which utilize illicit business practices to further their sales and topple their competitors. I totally agree with your statement about the unethical practice of Microsoft. However, that pertains to wooing customers to their side, not to the 'invention' of the software itself. For Novell is still around today in the software business--not the best stocks, but they're still there--and Noorda's had no association with the company since 1994. But with the Xerox fiasco, it was like the same format being leeched for Apple, and then Jobs took the credit by getting a patent associated with Xerox's W.I.M.P. for a computer which resulted in Xerox losing out in the computer race--limiting them to measly office machines--whereas in reality, both Gates & Jobs had essentially at that point (1979) designed the same computer with two separate operating systems. Apple's superior for having no viruses and being faster, but even Apple inventions are utilized by numerous employees. That campus they got in Cupertino is huge, and their manufacturing is in China, so there's a lot of brains behind each invention from both Apple & Microsoft. So in short, both companies will still be thriving creatively & financially well after their leader's times
    You think Pike and Sykes haven't been watchin' us. They know what this is all about - and what do I have? Nothin' but you egg-suckin', chicken stealing gutter trash with not even sixty rounds between you. We're after men - and I wish to God I was with 'em

  • I was like 3 when my parents got me my first Macintosh, my mind was blown to say the least. Then came the color Macs which my Grandmother got me which was pretty cool. Now I have an IPhone, MacBook Pro, IPad 2 and of course ITunes which is the monopoly of music downloading, even though I'm pretty sure we all do it illegally lol. Anyway Steve you gave me all my tech I use for communicating, social networking and school work. My condolences to his friends, family and fans. R.I.P Jobs

  • @slysnide Sorry, but I didn't get it. I'm sure it's meant to lighten the mood, but I didn't get it :/
    There exist four rulers in this world: Gods, Humans, Vampires and Werewolves. The Question is, who do you think is above the food chain?

  • @bawnian-dexeus: Really? I thought it was pretty straight forward. Dan had posted about Jobs doing tasks for iGod on Facebook, and so I responded with that as a description of iGod's demands and consequence for not adhering to said demand, and then Steve responding with his quick ingenuity by saying he could basically help iSatan possess mankind and that iGod couldn't do anything about it since he's separated himself from interacting with man again. So iGod responds by telling him he'll send him to iPurgatory. The "i"s before each name was a joke that Dan made when he wrote iGod on Facebook, so I followed in kind with iSatan & iPurgatory.

  • Best forum ever.

    Ahhh remember my first time using a G5 apple mac to experiment with final cut and the pleasure of creating my first short story on an apple G5 in Word Mac with a fancy template cover, thus being the short story that drove me to be a writer and love writing.

    Steve revolutionised the world and media as we see it today, with a singular calligraphy course, amazing how the imagination can think, and it was a pleasure to met the man himself and it was worth waiting in the rain to meet him and John Lasseter.

    R.I.P Steve Jobs...Legend...Icon...Revolutionist...Apple

    Now let's go throw some Apples through Windows

  • @bawnian-dexeus: I read an article on Yahoo! that he attempted to contact Tim Cook and has yet to get a response. Maybe he thinks this has a shot at being the new logo. If so, that'd be cool, and it'd be insanely amazing that he could make big bank off something so simple. He invented it back in August when Steve resigned, posted it to his tumblr account, then reposted it on Wednesday and got up to 180,000+ comments on that day alone. Amazing. But he says he's not taken job offers and wishes to finish school first. I'd think that's good and bad, as it's always good to finish one's education--with unique exceptions ;)--and these offers may not be around forever.

    perfect. I don't know how we would be without him.
    Without fear there cannot be courage. But when we are together, it is our enemies who should be afraid.

  • @Georgia-DiPirro: You'd be surprised at how many people @jayaottley has been lucky to meet. I think he's a journalist for things like that, and for films. So he's met people in that crowd too.

  • I admire your knowledge and insight @slysnide - Again, I agree, nonetheless, both Gates and Jobs have/had flaws as we all do. That's big Business for you. Thank you for your data and your kindness in your delivery.
    OMG @jayaottley You got to Meet Him! That is tremendous; I would have waited in the rain, walked in the snow to have to meet him. That's cool... "This comment was brought to you by an Apple Macbook...." (Big Apple Smile!)
    Wow, Mark Gordon will produce the project Sony Pictures wants to release a biopic about Steve Jobs based on Walter Issacson's upcoming authorized biography that will be something I want to see. Especially with Mark Gordon producing it.
    That is so neat I love this... Thank you for sharing @bawnian-dexeus ~smart and talented ~ Jonathan Mak.
    Steve Jobs's technology helped push the film industry and Hollywood to where it is today. You are missed!
