Absolutely. That is very sad news. Despite everything, it comes as a shock to hear.

Very sad and very shocking even if we knew he was sick. He literally changed how we live our lives, I don't think that's exaggerating.

Thank you Steve Jobs, Apple Co-Founder, Dies at 56. Steve had an incredible vision and fully understood industrial design like no other CEO. Sad to see him go.

It is sad. In a lot of ways he was our Edison, in the reach of his vision. He was one of those figures who through media exposure we almost knew. I don't know what kind of person he was in real life, but I have nothing but respect for his ability to see the future and put all the pieces together to make it. Who will step up and push us all forward next?

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future...You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

Certainly one of the people that will be in the history books. I'm thankful for everything he did for us as a global culture, as well as for design. Steve has said that what turned him onto design was a typography elective he took in his ONE year of college... thank you to that typography teacher. Unknowingly he or she gave design one of its biggest contemporary advocates.

‎"Man cannot do without beauty, and this is what our era pretends to want to disregard." - Camus

It is strange and wonderful for me to work in a place that has so much evidence of the early Steve. Walking past shelves of Apple models from the 80's, some flat screen tablets from the very early 80's for example, show what happens when one person has the audacity to take the impossible and make it possible, even if it takes him 30 years, and the gravitational effect that creates as like minded people magnetized to him and helped him make it all real.

Love or hate, the impact cannot be disputed.

Rest In Peace, Steve Jobs

Certainly a man that will be missed. Like mentioned before he has single handedly changed the way we think about the world around us. Rest in peace and we will never forget you. I don't know if there will ever be another.

As a designer it's sad to see such a visionary exit this mortal coil.

This one is making the rounds, too, though I wish I had a source for it.

This is what I thought when I heard:
There's only one proper way for a professional soldier to die: the last bullet of the last battle of the last war.
It's funny to read that people are sad. I'm happy that we were blessed with this guy driving technology for a good part of the last 30 years instead of some suits from IBM that didn't know anything about people. All I can think of is, 'wow...what a ride!'.

That's a good perspective. I try to read his Stanford commencement speech every few months, because I think it contains probably some of the best advice about living anyone has ever written:
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
It's hard advice to follow. I don't know anything about his personal life, but in his public life, I can't think of anyone who has taken better advantage of his limited time than Steve Jobs. It's sad that it ended sooner than it should have, but his time certainly wasn't wasted.

Here's the full speech:

When you think about it, in many ways Job's influence touched more of our lives than probably any other figure in recent history. Both as end users of technology and as designers.

Sad that the news comes right on the heels of their press conference.
