Summary:

Steve Jobs has passed away, and it’s impossible to fully express what he’s meant to all of us personally here at TheAppleBlog and GigaOM, and to the world as a whole. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Please, share with us your memories and thoughts.

Steve Jobs has passed away, and it’s impossible to fully express what he’s meant to all of us personally here at TheAppleBlog and GigaOM, and to the world as a whole. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. We’d like to ask you, our readers, to share with us and the community here what Steve Jobs and the company that he built has meant to you.

It could be a memory of a time when you actually got to work with or witness the man himself, a story about how Macs have helped change or improve your life, or just a simple “Thank you” for all he accomplished — whatever you feel like sharing to help remember Jobs and the legacy he leaves behind.

  1. Thank you for everything Steve. If it wasn’t for your great mind I would not have heard the sad news about you, and would not be reading this website at 2am in the morning while trying to get to sleep. You will be greatly missed. R.I.P Steve Jobs.

  3. In 1987, I was introduced to my first Macintosh computer in a graphic design class in college. Today, I am a freelance graphic designer who has used apple computers for 25 years. I would not have stayed in this career had it not been for the innovative products developed by apple. Not to be overly dramatic here but my life might have been totally different had it not been for Steve Jobs. Thank you Steve and condolences to your family.

  5. It is hard to believe we now live in a world with no Steve Jobs – since I was a young boy in elementary school learning BASIC computer language on an Apple IIe, Steve Jobs’ creations, designs and ideas have given me a chance to be creative, logical and to discover the world around me.

    Today most of my interaction in the digital realms we so often visit is on an Apple device, which was first designed, vetted or pushed to new heights by the visionary man in the turtleneck and blue jeans.

    Passed on at 56 seems painfully young, far too brief, but it was a full life, one that inspired millions and gave new outlets of expression and venues of creativity to young and old alike.

    Thanks Steve
    RIP

  7. Apple devices have enriched my life in ways I never could have imagined. From my Mac computer to my iPad and iPhone I am connected to a whole world of information. These devices are the most user friendly and trouble free equipment I have ever used. I can’t imagine my day without using them. Thenk you Steve for all your contributions to enhancing our lives. You will be missed.

  9. In 1980 I mowed 90 lawns at $10 each to purchase my first used Apple II+. It has been a love affair ever since. I strayed for a few of the lean years to earn my income on a PC, but a decade ago I came back to the fold and have been an evangelist for the brand ever since. I felt, like many users, that we knew the man as a friend, a brother, a father. Part of his genius. We knew but one side of a complex man – But that part is hard for me to let go tonight. I can only imagine what his family and his friends are going through today. My thoughts go out to them.

  10. Apple is the only company I’ve ever truly loved… And it surely won’t be the same without you.
