The tech industry has lost a true visionary today. At the age of 56, Steve Jobs was pronounced dead after a hard fight against pancreatic cancer. Whether you’re an Apple fan or not, you cannot deny this man’s influence on our modern technology. Steve, you will be missed.

From Tramell:

Tonight Apple confirmed the death of Co-founder Steve Jobs, the man who brought you the stunning iPod, the marvelous iPhone, and the game changer: the iPad. It was well known that he was battling pancreatic cancer for quite some time and tonight, he lost the battle.

I just want to say thank you to Steve Jobs for bringing us to the future. In a gaming related sense, he practically created this idea that we could have a full-functioning powerful mobile device, that spurred the industry into developing for ‘mobile’ and caused great debate with the evolution of gaming. Though he wasn’t the first to talk cell phones or tablets, he and his company really took the ideas and ran with them.

From Ryan:

It is with a heavy heart that I, along with millions others; find myself saying goodbye to a revolutionary.  Steve Jobs has been an important role model for me since I began Vagary.TV, and also in my own personal life.  Jobs taught the world to think differently and to constantly be moving forward.  He has bestowed upon the world his genius, and for that I join with the rest of humanity to issue one last resounding, Thank you.

    Tragic. If any one man can be credited with defining consumer electronics of the 21st century, Steve Jobs would surely be that man. We have lost a real innovator.
