    This seems to be breaking news at the moment, so no news story to go with it. But it is sad enough to warrant its own thread.

    Poor guy. RIP

    Yeah, it's running on the BBC ticker. Looks like it's really this time.

    Statement from Apple:

    We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

    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.

    His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

    Wow, that sucks. I knew he was in bad shape but I thought he would have good enough medical care to hang around for a while.

    Bad timing for Apple too.

    Tomorrow's Daily Mail headline: "Steve Jobs in miracle cancer recovery, family 'delighted'"

    Amazing! So the EG leftie commie DINGBATS go all GAGA over the foul-smelling filthwads of "Occupy Wall Street", while at the same time weeping that this particular billionaire, this fucking goddamn plundering Eichmann of our era, has finally got his? You fucking goddamn inconsistent spineless spunkwads.

    Far as I'm concerned, they can throw his lifestyle-product-pushing, I'm-such-a-messiah horseshit into the grave next to him. iPod? More like DIE-POD.

    This is going to be the joke that keeps on giving, isn't it :D

    In a world where the obsession for computers was to get faster, flashier, more memory, more everything packed into a beige metal box, it was handy to have someone round who thought "why don't we make them nicer to look at and easier to use?". You didn't have to be an apple evangelist to have benefited from what they did.

    Shame about the more devoted followers treating the company like some sort of religion, mind...
