    Man, they've REALLY gone to town :facepalm:

    Maybe this may turn out to be America's Princess Di moment?

    Typical Apple, the contract ends and the next thing you know, bam, dead.

    Why? He hasn't been in an executive position since August and his death wasn't unexpected.

    What next for Gizmodo: "Steve Jobs: what underpants did you have on when he died?"

    Id be more interested in whether the death of a renowned capitalist ends up broadly coinciding with the death of capitalism as we know it.

    I suspect that one of the reasons his death is receiving so much attention is that nerds with charisma are a somewhat rare breed. Even if Gates had an interesting vision, he sure did a great job of making it seem dull, and I never got more than a few pages through his book.

    Oh, Mashable is joining in. They're now taking photographs of the messages left outside the makeshift shrine in NYC and making a slideshow out of them, adding captions too, to fill the page up. http://mashable.com/2011/10/06/letters-to-steve-jobs/

    Steve Jobs was far too young to be most of our grandads. He's 10 yrs younger than my parents.

    my point was you should have perhaps asked "why be sad, he was not your dad?" instead.

    see, it even rhymes :)

    Apparently joking about Steve Jobs death isn't very PC.
