...this shocks me more than I would have thought.

dating back up to two years, remember all those pictures of him looking like he's slowly dying but (apparently) turned out to be photoshopped? It just adds to the oddness of the whole thing...was he even in the hospital? Was it his cancer?

no matter how much you hate apple..you can't deny he was an amazing innovator...

Yea it was pretty shocking. WSJ sent out an email alert:

"Apple says steve jobs died"

So it almost seemed surreal to click the link. It's truly the end of an era.

What a great man. Considering all the achievements he made possible through a great company, I agree he could be considered as "the Da Vinci of this Century" (CBS News).

I had a feeling he was going to pass away by the end of the year, but only a day after the iPhone event? Sounds like a miracle that he survived to get that one last product completed, or he died a few days ago and Apple kept it under wraps in some crazy conspiracy to prevent their stocks from dropping and keep up customer morale.

Aside from the tragedy, he is one of the greatest minds of the past century and his vision of the world is very quickly becoming a reality. With the multitude of cloud networks, iOS devices, and compatibility between devices quickly changing the world, especially what is expected in the next year. This is a revolution he shaped and envisioned, and it's too bad he didn't survive to see it become a reality.

Sort of reminds me in the Old Testament when Moses dies upon the Jews reaching Israel.

I was surprised but not shocked given his health for the last few years. I am not a great fan of Apple products nor some of the ways Mr. Jobs' steered the business model of Apple but I cannot deny the impact he has had. Any man's passing deserves tribute and respect.

Dude changed more lives than he probably will ever know. I can remember my first time on the internet was on an Apple 2. So much of what we have now was based off something he did or started and I have respect for him for that.
