Steve Jobs dies at 56
What is there to say? I feel remorse. That’s all I’m feeling right now with this news. I opened my browser and Google tells me “Steve Jobs, 1955-2011”.
This is just too sad. He died a few hours before lunchtime today, Thursday, here in the Philippines. He died Wednesday evening back at the US.
The entry on Wikipedia (about his death) is written quite well. Give it a read too.
I checked their website and it was a simple message that greeted me. Simplicity was always Steve’s key in hi achievements. He would’ve liked no other way to remember him except thru a simplicity.
Farewell, Steve. Thank you very much for bringing to life your wonderful ideas, thank you for sharing your intellect with the rest of us, and most of all, just thank you for being who you were upto the point of your last breath.
You will always be remembered as one of the most innovative men in history. May you rest in peace.
Anima9 wishes you eternal rest.
UPDATE: The original message that sent millions of people to tears
