OMG. I can't believe it. I don't like Mac, but Steve Jobs was a great smart person. I was just reading daily news and I saw it! He was only 56 years old and he died of cancer.
R.I.P.

Lame!
I just watched something on the news about the iPhone versions, and I was just thinking "if steve jobs is watching this he would be happy". It seemed to be very Apple-oriented.

Rest In Bits Steve,
Now that Steve is out of the way, there is nothing stopping Microsoft taking over Apple. ;)

That's more like searching for almonds on a dead body, anyways, some people degrade values to the core when it comes to Business.

Now that I think about it, on Steve's funeral site will they bury him with a copy of every piece of Apple's software? That would be neat.

I think Apple (and fans) are making a too big deal out of it. Quote from this web site.

To survive its late founder, Apple and Steve Jobs planned a training program in which company executives will be taught to think like him, in 'a forum to impart that DNA to future generations.'

It is sad, but I think he was more of a salesman then an inventor (as someone mentioned earlier).

If you think of it, most of the rich computer-people today, did not do something COMPLETELY new, they just took an idea, and implemented it in a right way, and made tons of money. And a lot of those ideas were stolen-- Bill Gates bought DOS really cheaply and Steve Jobs stole the mouse from Xerox (I think).

So yeah, this is more like a shock to me then a tragedy.

RIP Steve Jobs, one of the greatest innovationists of his time.

Thanks for doing what many others would not have.

The way people are going on about you'd think Steve Jobs was their mother and tables and mp3 players had never existed before the iPod and iPad. i'm not a fan of Apple only the iPod (nano because it's lasted 5 years and i got it cheap) but the company is bigger than one man and similar technology to that released by Apple would more than likely have been released eventualy through natural progression.

How ever Apply (and Steve Jobs) have played a massive part in the advancement of technology. it's not nice to here that anyone has died and should be good to see what Apple go on to do in the future.

Just remember when we're all flying around on hoverboards the idea came from Back to the future in the 80's !

No I invented the hoverboard. You see in the year 2015 Dani unleashes a program called skynet making machines able to think for themselves and code their own way out of problems. Then in the year 2017 this machine is exposed as a optional component on Folding@Home where skynet rapidly builds up a database and scans the internet to download and document all content in existence. At the end of the year 2019 the first humanoid realeased from Stanford university as a commercial product is up for sale and Dani buy's one and programs in the newly created skynet into this humanoid. October 2020 Dani goes on a birthday party leaving the humaniod home and the humaniod builds an assembly line for making robots to terminate all those who are not within the same continent. This assembly line soon starts to build another assembly line until the US military find out and starts a war of Terminator vs US Military. Then one terminator realises the weakness of the enemy where if a time machine was built then saving Hitler's life will defeat the enemy. So a time machine is built according to the specifications of doc brown and Hitler is saved and the US is under control of the Hitler Government. Then when it comes 2020 again Hitler allows the production of the Terminators until 2023 when hover technology is invented. This allowed the terminators to invent hover-aircraft and children were far too happy with their hover-boards. So Hitler declared war against the Terminators and in the following 10 years 2 billion deaths would follow to guarantee the end of all Terminators. However one terminator survived in the end. The last terminator to survive went back in time with the last remaining time vehicle to the year 2007 where the last terminator started posting here on daniweb. And here is that terminator posting here now. (me)

Bill Gates got DOS from IBM so cheaply because IBM didn't know what to do with it and didn't really want it. So yea, you buy something at a huge price that hasn't been developed yet. That's not stealing -- its just good business.

Steve was one of the greatest business leaders of our generation. He created products that people had never even imagined in their wildest dreams. He inspired many to follow their dreams, and to take the leap in changing the world. Even if you did not like Apple products, you could not say that you didn't respect what he did for the computing world. He will be missed by all. RIP Steve.

Not just business but Good Business. Bill gates is just one smart person the Tech industry needed and he brought a lot of competition into the industry thus leading to advancement in tech by different companies so as to attract more users and earn higher profits year after year.

I improved your program, and translated it into C++ ;)

#include <ComputerPeople.h>
#include <conio.h> //for sleep
int main() {
ComputerPerson *BillGates = new ComputerPerson("Microsoft");
ComputerPerson *SteveJobs = new ComputerPerson("Macs");

BillGates->StealStuffAndGetRich();
SteveJobs->StealStuffAndGetRich();

delete SteveJobs;
Sleep(TENYEARS);
delete BillGates;
return 0;
}
