To Laurene Jobs and children, we cannot feel your pain and loss at Steve’s passing.

Many of us, Apple customers and employees, feel pain and loss too. Steve Jobs wasn’t perfect, but he was a remarkable man, who changed the world for the better in many ways. We will indeed miss him.


I’m sorry for Steve Jobs’ family’s loss. He deserved a much longer life. I hope that Steve’s choice to work as long as he did at Apple was what he loved doing. I know that if it was me, I’d have chosen to have done what I loved the most.
