I wouldn't have bought that if isn't for the fact that I'm helping to developed 2 iOS games. Anyway its a terrible loss for the tech industry. Like him or hate him, you have to respect what he has done to bring technology to the masses.
His vision restarted the industry and gave us some truly revolutionary and "magical" devices. Reading books with my kids interactively on an iPad is such a personal and exciting experience... The iOS devices made bed time for the kids a fun time for everyone. Small things like that can make a huge difference/impact in people's lives, and, I'm sure my kids will grow up with incredible memories of the adventures we embarked on while using the tech that Steve Jobs had a hand in creating for us.
I can think what I did before my iPhone, and my iPad is my most used piece of tech.
Love him, hate him or indifferent ... His ideas, visions and constant pushing of tech boundaries will be sorely missed by millions.
I feel really bad though...
I own 5 iOS devices and have never jailbroke any of them... Then, a few hours ago I jailbroke my iPad for the first time ever, installed xbmc on it, configured it.. Then found out that Steve had just died!
Do you think he knew...
He said some truly remarkable things though, he will be quoted for many years to come with his thoughts on life, death and dreams.
Sad sad day for tech... Let's hope he gave apple a map before he left... And let's pray they don't get lost like the last time jobs left them!
