My wife suggested I buy some Apple stock when it was around $17. I loved their computers, but didn't think the company was that stable to risk money on. She was right.

Heard about Steve Jobs about 2 hours ago and couldn't believe it at first.

Certainly he was brilliant, understood consumer desires and was an extremely private person. He also made not only cool products, but very reliable ones that are easy to use. Few CEO's have the vision he had and many could learn from him, notably Airstream.

If I may,

No mater which platform, device or OS you prefer we all owe Steve a huge debt.
What would the Forum look like, if there even could have been one, without the vision and drive of a college dropout who transformed the stodgy IBM culture of the day into something that literally changed the world as we knew it.

I will be raising a glass this weekend at our Forum Rally and proposing a toast:
To Steve Jobs. A man who’s contribution to the integration of technology with human knowledge and creativity has equaled or exceeded that of Thomas Edison or Henry Ford.
A man, without whom I never could have met such a wonderfully diverse group of friends.
Thanks. See you on the other side.

Today show today has very special tribute to Steve, I felt a big lump in my throat when I heard the news. Steve has touched all of us in the way one could not imagine or even describe.

May you rest in peace, I know , I imagine god also need a man like you up there.

May god bless you and your family.
