As much as I'm anti-mac, his innovation and passion for his job definitely moved the world forward in our views of technology.

Not really. He recently stepped down as CEO of Apple and he was diagnosed with cancer and given only a few months to live years back.

I found this video of him pretty touching.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

You derps, he was chief executive of Pixar and was the largest individual shareholder in the company with 7% (but then again im a film nut so thats why I knew that) also had involement in Disney aswell, dont know too much about that.. Crack all the jokes to be the cool guy but he is tied to so many things that we used/own/owend/seen... cancer is a bitch, happens to too many good peeps.

Yup, without Steve Jobs PIXAR wouldn't exist. I don't care much for Apple products but I love PIXAR movies and Steve Jobs gave them the funding they needed to create Toy Story and continue making movies.

Steve was truly someone who changed the planet. He revolutionised industries. I hope he rests in peace and Apple keeps going in the same direction.
