The List

1. The Jobs family: "In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve's illness."

Tech Leaders and Journalists/Bloggers

2. Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak: "It's like the world lost a John Lennon - I mean Steve was clearly the most outstanding business thinker and almost everybody high up in the technology business recognized that somehow he had the ability to think out new ways of doing things, not just ways to improve what we have (do a better version of something) but do it in a totally different way that the world would swing towards."

3. Apple CEO Tim Cook: "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being."

4. Apple's Board of Directors: "Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."

5. Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter: "He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply 'make it great.'"

6. Walt Disney President Bob Iger: "Steve was such an 'original,' with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started."

7. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates: "Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come."

8. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen: "We've lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn't help but be encouraged by how he persevered."

9. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer: "I want to express my deepest condolences at the passing of Steve Jobs, one of the founders of our industry and a true visionary. My heart goes out to his family, everyone at Apple and everyone who has been touched by his work."

10. Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang: "Steve was my hero growing up. He not only gave me a lot of personal advice and encouragement, he showed all of us how innovation can change lives. I will miss him dearly, as will the world."

11. Google CEO Larry Page: "He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me."

12. Google co-founder Sergey Brin: "From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met."

13. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt: ""Today is very sad for all of us. Steve defined a generation of style and technology that's unlikely to be matched again. Steve was so charismatically brilliant that he inspired people to do the impossible, and he will be remembered as the greatest computer innovator in history."

14. Google Research Director Peter Norvig: "Honor Steve Jobs: resolve to do something insanely great."

15. Google head of web spam Matt Cutts: "The tech industry lost an amazing, world-changing person today. Rest in peace, Steve."

For my lack of ability to post links, I'll just refer to the fact that there is a Chiefs Planet Facebook page.

I am pretty sure Mark Zuckerberg lied, cheated, and stole his way to an equally world changing place in this world. Yet you don't seem to have a real problem drafting off his successes to funnel people to this website (on which you generate ad revenue for each impression, both those originated from Facebook and elsewhere).

Personally I don't have a Facebook account and never have. I don't have a real problem with what you're saying here, or what you are objecting to in general with the Steve Jobs love/hate. But if you're going to get uber righteous against thievery, you probably shouldn't put yourself in a position to profit off of one of today's greatest modern thieves.

I think there's room for giving blind faith/love to both Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. As someone alluded to earlier in this thread, it takes a certain kind of person who is maybe willing to step outside those acceptable social norms to get to the next level. For what they have each brought to this world and how they've changed it forever, I think you should cut them some slack.

This is incredibly important. You don't want to piss on the guy's grave, but he didn't exactly invent protease inhibitors or the Polio vaccine.

In some ways, this is almost like the death of the Georgio Armani of Computers. He didn't invent the damned thing, he just came up with ways to make it more convenient, but more than anything, fashionable.

I'm actually more interested in learning how he survived 8 years with one of the most deadly cancers.

You could say that by doing so, Jobs greatly sped the adoption of certain technologies into society. That adoption rate pushed other competing products into the market, and fostered a highly competitive environment, leading to better products across the board.

I have little doubt that without Jobs, mp3 players, smartphones, and tablets wouldn't be where they are today.

For better or worse, adoption rate is king in the personal technology world, and Jobs was a genius on that front.

He had islet cell carcinoma. It's a much rarer, and different form of pancreatic cancer. If he had garden-variety pancreatic cancer, he'd have been dead seven years ago. There's no worse cancer.

Except for the fact that the history of adoption rates belies the fact that Jobs accelerated it. Look at the exponential increase in the adoption rate from radio to TV, from TV to internet, and from internet to high-speed, for example.

In his Stanford speech he says that his pancreatic cancer was a rare form that is more curable than the standard pancreatic cancer. I'm guessing that that has something to do with his unusually long post-cancer survival.

The iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad were not the first to market in their respective genres, yet each sold in high volumes upon launch, dominated the market, and kickstarted the genre. That's purely anecdotal, but I don't think you'd find many that disagree.

Is that a result of current adoption rates, and Apple just happened to time their products as the market was primed to explode? Possible, but I doubt it. Apple is great at making people want their products.

Just to be clear, the CP Facebook page was set up to test some things.. it in NO way is a serious page meant to drive traffic... (heck I haven't checked in over a month)

I have no doubt that Zuck may have been somewhat shady and is a bad person too. BUT I have yet to hear/read anything that is in the same BALLPARK as the crap Jobs pulled. If someone decided to crusade against Zuck and knew what they were talking about, I certainly wouldn't defend Zuck and argue against the person.

of course all this is beside the point because I have no problem using the products of bad people if I don't have an equal or better choice. If the iPhone was the only smartphone around, I'd swallow hard and get one.

I am just pointing out that
