Steve Jobs' COD


"Apple co-founder Steve Job died of respiratory arrest caused by a pancreatic tumor, according to a copy of his death certificate."

A less aggressive tumor was removed from Steve-o during his first medical leave of absence in 2004. I guess this one wasn't so benign.

Shame. The light that burns brightest, and all that. I'm a computer geek; Steve is a giant among my kind. I truly hate to see him go.

I don't believe he had any grand vision for a computing future when he co-invented the first Apple machines. But I do believe he had a long-term vision this past decade, as the iPhone, iPad and soon, iCloud were launched. And I want to see that vision made real.
