You were the most innovative, most iconic, most widely recognized CEO in the world!
The tech world bids you farewell!
he looks so thin there,look at the picture hes bones, maybe hes got leukemia or sumthing, a reason to quit an awesome job
well.. I don't care if he quits, stays or whatever he does or not... Android is here and that's the only thing that counts!
HONESTLY...I hate apple and I don't like Steve job either as he is on a road to kill competiotion and I will always criticise him but I can't ignore the truth and the fact that this is the only man behind apples success and loyal to his company. Could be a possibility that he know that the "sue" game which he started is gonna hit him back as when he introduces I phone 5. Im sure that might have been copied from something. I may be wrong But I may also be right.
NightHawk, 25 Aug 2011actually Google itself is responsible for the shortage of high quality apps in android. Althou... moreIt certainly flies in the face of those who view the iphone as a toy.
The App Store really made it desirable. That's one of the main reasons why I bought a 3GS. Innovative apps and games to show off to friends. Sadly the touch based apps are getting repetitive now and we will need a new feature (maybe NFC?) to create more new software.
Even though the iphone 4 has great graphics, touch screen gaming is limited in my opinion.
Steve you did your part and took apple to new heights unseen....
Cheers for your massive contributions....it is a right decision as Apple are in a lot of trouble if iphone 5 doesn't do as bright as Samsung Galaxy 2/HTC's....Best of luck to cook......
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2011To celebrate this I just ordered a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 LOL
Steve really deserves a huge farewell. After Bill Gates, he is the 2nd person who turned a professional machine into personal computer. He is an innovative person and will surely leave a space which cannot be easily occupied in the IT world.
Best wishes to both Steve and Apple...
without steve jobs Microsoft wouldnt make windows..without steve jobs google wouldnt make android so mobile manufacturers like samsung htc motorola would go bankrupt... without steve jobs we would be stuck with big laptops instead of using tablets..
Hope Cook will not "Cook" Apple to make it boiled Apple, as Elop has eloped with Nokia's Core values....

It's about time people realised that the iphone is a classic example of a hyped ... moreactually Google itself is responsible for the shortage of high quality apps in android. Although there are more android users than iOS but these users are fragmented over different versions of android, different brands with different hardware. If developers like Gameloft releases a game for iOS then there will be millions of iOS users who will buy it but if gameloft releases it for an android device like motorola atrix with gingerbread, chances are that the game won't work in previous or next versions of android or may not work in gingerbread of another brand such as samsung galaxy S II. There are a few apps which only work in Tegra. An android device gets outdated within 3-6 months. While millions of users from iOS will buy it, it may hardly reach a thousand sells for a particular android device.
Microsoft is also from USA but they have failed miserably with their ugly WP 7. Actually whoever controls the US market also put their influence over world. Because of their media.
Early iPhone users of 2007 were really dumb who bought it because of the hype but slowly these people modified many things with the help of jailbreaking and made a perfect ecosystem. There was a saying that only dumb rich people buy iPhone but today you can see that all the tech reviewers on YouTube or on forum sites prefer to use iPhone.
Steve deserves alot of Praise for what he as done at Apple an how he as really moved the Gadget market on,when people first found out that Apple was joining the Mobile market people were thinking that had no chance of succeding but because of the iPhone its moved the Smartphones on an just showed how bad the Mobile market was before Apple joined it,an the iPhone as really been the phone the other companies are trying to compete with,o.k it might be a Price you have to pay that puts people off buying Apple products but you know you are buying something you can trust an is worth it true value
i think he do this because he know that apple cant go anywhere after iphone 5 or just maybe after this iphone 4.. think about it iphone 5 doesnt really have new things in it.. beside android like notifacation .. other then that wat else does it have.. newer specs wise but im talking about os n features... nothing new... apple is running out of juice.. while andorid is creating more... this is why steve step down... i guess i could be wrong..
Its so simple, jobs knows very well that today or tomoro android is gonna beat them, so he thought better stop singing when the sound is good.
Like i said before, looks like Steve job losing his jobs...... now apple have to share playground wt Samsung and other...This is a example of iphone5 fail to stop Galaxy S II entering U.S soil. Its time to move to Galaxy S II iboys..... Grow up...Something big will came....
match, 25 Aug 2011ahah i see fan boy crying behind their pc,their step father is gone...you mean behind their macs, and yes we cry!!!
NightHawk, 25 Aug 2011I see that you have done some research but you should have gone further. Steve Jobs is the fou... moreWell said.
It's about time people realised that the iphone is a classic example of a hyped up American brand. It's not Apple, or Jobs fault in any way, the U.S. are masters of hype.
That PR and advertising that Apple uses is attractive to developers. You could have 2 million different Android handsets out there, and the Apple App Store would still get most of the best Apps first.
Android can't compete. Best Android Apps = Ported over from iOS.
