Apple just announced that Steve Jobs has died. What a man...what a life. I don't have a Mac, iPhone or iPAD...but I will miss him.

Steve...Rest in Peace.

A true innovator. It was nice to see an American company selling products that the whole world wanted. If we had another 100 like him, there would be no recession in the U.S.

RIP Steve Jobs.

I had the chance to attend an Apple release party several years ago in NYC. Had the opportunity to ask for an autograph and Jobs looked at me like I was nuts and it was the first time anyone had ever asked him for such a thing. I was then politely asked to leave the premises about 10 minutes later. Very strange day. Must say, it has not deterred me buying nearly every version of the iphone over the years or purchasing Apple products. One of the greats for sure.

He was a brilliant marketer, and like most brilliant people seemed to have his idiosynchrosies. Just ask some of his ex-employees.

Some of the accolades have been a bit much (he was no Edison), but he was a darling of the media so it is to be expected.

Other than the preprint which has been selling on ebay, I presume his real autograph is probably uncommon.

Agreed Mr. Zipper. And, if I was not clear in the post - NO he did NOT sign my invite card. Wouldn't know what a real Steve Jobs signature looks like either. Never seen (or really looked for one).

Did anyone get a real one in-person? I'd love to see it.  I have seen 2 very different versions on eBay.
