5gb ipod (purchased used in Tokyo, oddly enough), 10gb ipod, a 20, 2 30's, a 40, three ipod touches, 2 80s (one was a replacement) 4 ipod nanos, and a mini... All except the mini and 1 nano have died. So while I agree that the technology and the influence will last for some time, the products pointedly don't. Of course, that's why Apple keeps making money! People want the next coolest thing. In the PC industry, the next coolest thing kind of fizzled out a long time ago.. People still buy them but less on emotional response than need. It'll be intesesting to see what happens without Jobs to help create the excitement on new stuff... Can Tim Cook (or someone esle) step up?

The biggest vision of Jobs compared to most of today entrepreneurs is that Jobs build something that lasts. He as well see the flaw of the existing products and gave a direction to make Apple products to be better. If he wasn't seen as someone who has innovated, he would be perceive as a great contributor the evolution of modern day computer.

Steve Jobs was definitely a visionary. He had a massive amount of motivation that allowed him to think beyond the cubical. I'm not exactly a hipster who thinks he's rebelling against the norm by following the Apple herd, but I will definitely say Apple builds some quality products. A lot more companies can learn a thing or three from Apple. Here's to you genius, good "Jobs"! May they all sport black turtlenecks at your funeral...

I have never seen such a humble and kind man, he was a genius and never carried himself like he was better than anyone else. His creative mind helped make this world a better place. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and those who were blessed to know him personally.

iSad for Steve RIP. The industry in addition to Apple has lost a visionary. Condolences to his family and loved ones. Where would the world have been without Apple and Animated movies without Pixar. Its surprising how coincidental, he just resigned in August and just two days ago new iPhone 4S was launched (with mixed/slight-negative feedback from community and critics). It might be akword to say but Steve even with his death gave one final gift to Apple as iPhone4S sales might jump to remember/honor his legacy by consumers. RIP Steve, Long will live his legacy.

Shocking and sad, even if we knew he wasn't well, it still came unexpectedly. His creative genius, his intuition in inventing instant trends, were uncanny. This was one example of an individual, the man himself, who definitely made a difference. I won't pretend I was personally transfixed by his products, but it's impossible to deny the contributions he made. He made personal computing trendy, he made it mobile and portable, he made some of the most innovative business models actually work, he invented and then reinvented Apple, and got the whole personal computing industry to follow, trying to play catch-up. And I never saw Apple stores empty of customers. A huge loss. RIP, Steve Jobs.

A sad day indeed. We have lost the foremost innovator of the technology world and his brilliance will be hard to replace. His ideas was what made Apple such an icon of modern elctronic industry and was something all competitors struggled to imitate. A great leader and visionary unlike few others who virtually defined the consumer tastes and moods. It was like he had a crystal ball to peek into the future. His style is very nicely elucidated by how he described Apple works- he quoted the candian ice hockey chmpion " ... we dont skate to where the puck is gouing, we would like to skate to where the puck will be.."

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
