idk,, apple without Steve Jobs somehow make me really sad and something is really "missing" about using apple products right now,, I'm afraid about the future of apple without him,, afraid of losing Steve's brilliant and futuristic ideas and concepts

Steve jobs is really like a hero for me and for me he's the only man which is really "change everything"

he should be lead the apple till the end, not the somebody else like Tim Cook..

I dont like Apple and dont think they are so innovative. I give him points for making the markets go nuts and spend a lot to make better and better products.

Still, I hope he defeats the cancer, i wish nobody to get cancer or any illness.

Hope that development wont slow down now.

Desperately now trying to find a non touch screen phone with a good camera is difficult, As good the iphone is never again.
*points finger at all phone makers "make good button phones again"

Mr Jobs needs to take things easy and just relax now.

njam, 26 Aug 2011thanks steve for all those years and the very hard work you put ... moreHim and a few million others. I really don't see why there should be more attention for mister Jobs' illness than anyone elses, nor do I care more for him than anyone else.

Dont be a hypocrite

AnonD-7168, 25 Aug 2011I see that you have done some research but you should have gone ... moreYeah, maybe not, the GUI and the mouse where copied from xerox, the music service was around for a long time before, the thing is, yuppies are technologically limited people and they see apple has the trendsetter, and (unfortunately) they also create trends, so the service started it's expansion... And the Prada phone, was already on sale when the iphone was shown up for the first time, actually the first brand to use this concept was siemens with the blackbox years earlier! And anyway, lot's of the iphone innovations where already on the market before, like the slide to unlock from neonode! It's all about marketing, he his a very smart person, has a marketer, not has a innovative genius like everybody thinks, he just borrowed most of his "ideas", and even if I respect that, I just don't like him because he doesn't respect people that does the same he did
