    It’s amazing to see, Steve Jobs was so calm about it, so ready for it. He knew about life and death.

    Steve Jobs will be missed. Not only as the co-founder of Apple, but also as a great innovator, an excellent leader, an impressive & charming personality, and a real genius, in my opinion.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    I saw this video a couple years ago. I agree – it’s well worth watching! Jobs was a true visionary who also had the ability to communicate as few can. I’m in awe of his accomplishments.

    What an inspiration. I can, personally, breath a little easier knowing when I get to heaven, there will be great computers because I’m sure Mr. Jobs is totally updating Heavens network as we speak. I wouldn’t even be surprised to find out the first Apple Store has already been opened in heaven. He is truly the American Dream personified. My God have mercy on his family, friends, and soul! Rest in peace.
