I bought one of the first Apple Lisa's in 1983, the Mac's big sister. I paid $6K for the system including a dot-matrix printer and a mouse controlled computer with 1 Mb RAM and a 5 Mb HD. I still have the computer and it still works. So slow now. I bought 3 more later on after they were discontinued for $300 that I use for parts, but in almost 30 years I've only had to change out one of the RAM memory boards.

So sad to see such a brilliant man pass on so soon. He will be dearly missed all around the world.

May his joyful personality be remembered for ever and his drive for technology be passed on to many.

RIP Steve.

And to Jason, thanks for not putting "Steve Jobs Dead" as the the headline. I always though news headlines that said "dead" were pretty harsh and insensitive as opposed to saying "passes away" or "dies".

It doesn't matter if you use Apple products or not. The personal computing world is as it is today largely in part because of Steve Jobs.

‎"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” --- Steve Jobs
