Looks like Steve Jobs Lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Apple will never be the same. :(

Honestly, I've never owned an Apple product (However, I used some of them at various times), but I know that Mr. Jobs was a very venerated person in the world of electronics, and he will be very missed for a very long time. R.I.P., Steve Jobs, and good night.

My iPod touch is the one device I own that I can't bear a single day without. RIP.

Not many entrepreneurs can claim to have made powerhouses out of not one, but two corporations, and Steve is one of them.

R.I.P. and best of luck running iCloud up there, Steve. Stay tuned.

P.S. Mom, my stepfather and I own so many Apple products, we can claim the title of Apple maniacs. (I own an iMac, used to have an iPod, was originally going to get an iPhone, Mom owns an iPhone and iPad, my stepfather owns another iPhone)

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. :( Your achievements with Apple and Pixar will never be forgotten.

I agree, it is so sad and sudden. I am also an Apple person; I own a MacBook (early 2009 model), eMac, PowerMac G4 (mid-2001 model) and a 15-inch PowerBook G4, along with a 4th-generation iPod Nano. My dad has a 5th-generation model, and my mom has an iPad 2. I was the first person in the family to get an Apple product (the iPod Nano for my 20th birthday.)

I'm sorry to hear that he's gone. I knew he stepped down as CEO for health problems, but I didn't know he was battling cancer.

Thanks, Steve, for helping to revolutionized the computer industry and bring the Mac and iMacs to offices, homes, and most importantly, the schools where I love and saw them the most. Also, thanks for putting one of the best animation studios of this decade on the map. We'll miss you.

Steve Jobs would probably be alive today if he had not put off conventional medical treatment in favour of alternative remedies, a leading cancer doctor has said.

Dr Ramzi Amri, a researcher at Harvard Medical School, claims the Apple boss had a mild form of cancer that is rarely fatal and that his choice of treatment 'eventually led to an unnecessarily early death'.
