    Thank you Steve for bringing to fruition electronic communication devices such as that which I am utilizing as I walk through the house, reading this article, and quickly responding to it. This couldn't have happened in my younger years. Thank you.

    common, you are acting like God himself passed away!<br>He was a great businessman, but i don't believe he did it for the benefit of all mankind.<br>Apple got better out of this, shareholders got better out of this, he got (very much) better out of this, some people got a real nice gadget. (i really do like the way apple products look and feel).<br>But it is all about earning money, piles of it!<br>Steve was a great tech guy, but nothing more than that to my opinion.

      Agreed, he was nothing if not the full epitomization of the 1980s.
