I'm not sure why this is so stunning to me, but it is, and I'm also surprised at how bummed out I am about it.

What bongo_x said. We all knew this was coming, but it's still a shock. As much as I've bashed Apple for various reasons, they've been a huge part of my life ever since my dad bought the family an Apple ][+ when I was about 14. Jobs gets credit for a huge amount of what they've done and how they've done it. As CR observed to me not long ago, he'll go down in history with names like Henry Ford and Walt Disney.

It's sad that he's gone.

>he'll go down in history with names like Henry Ford and Walt Disney<

I keep thinking Edison, but maybe I don't know enough about Edison. As someone on Metafilter pointed out, we're used to talking about people like Ford, or Disney, or Edison, or even grander names as historical figures, but Steve Jobs was alive this morning.

I've never been a Steve worshiper, that's why my reaction surprises me. I've often criticized, and many times thought what he was doing was stupid. It's a good thing he wasn't listening to me. My respect for (and frankly my full understanding of) his accomplishments has only come about in the last few years.
