Default Absolutely not Avatar related, but...

I'm a PC guy, I own an Android smartphone. Still, this is so bad.

Just a thought for the visionary who was Steve Jobs. Because of him we have Pïxar amongst others. If not for his awesome new ideas, everything we have (technology wise) would be one step behind what we have now.

Eywa, please keep his spirit alive so we still have innovations and something to look for.

Steve Jobs, I'm a PC guy and I used to loathe Apple... but it was misplaced. May your spirit live, within all of us.... oel ngati kameie



Edit: Ok, the last sentence was misleading as I still don't like Apple. I'm just gonna miss the founder a lot.

Also, little known fact: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates an their wives used to have dinner all the time even though publicly, their companies were fighting like hell.

Apple products are still overpriced pieces of trash.

What's wrong with $1600 for a mediocre laptop with an 11 inch screen?
They have Garage Band man... Garage Band.

Agreed. A great man doesn't always make a great company.

Hopefully he'll be reincarnated as an Apple product with a replaceable battery...

wow...Steve Jobs did some incredible stuff. I have long been an "apple" fan and this is definitely a loss for me.

Apple will never be the same...

I agree with many people here - Apple are still a company that sell overpriced and crippled DRM-ridden products, but it's still sad to see Steve Jobs go.
