Pause for thought - Steve Jobs dies
Really. It's not the time nor the place. You can be an Apple hater all you want. This is a sad day.
Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer last night. It's a dreadful, infuriating illness, one that neither money nor love can save you from. There are no smug remarks to make, no gleeful childish slights to break. The man was a revolution in computing, in life, and we all benefited from it. Whatever you thought of Apple, of the iPhone, of our sometimes inane coverage, it's not important right now.
This isn't meant to be overly sincere or sycophantic, but when you lose somebody that made a difference, when you lose somebody to a vulgar and excruciating disease, take a little time. It's important. We're a consumer blog, absolutely, but our world, and yours, is altogether a less fun and interesting place for the death of Steve Jobs.
