I'm with phantom -- why don't I just skip work today out of respect for steve jobs? I won't pay these bills here out of respect for steve jobs.
The guy was human and he died -- does that mean everyone else has to put their lives, their business, and their enjoyment on hold because of a man who gave them a shiny phone that was underpowered?
I will agree that he did good things (for a while) for the phone/tablet industry, but FFS he wasn't god, messiah, or anything special. He was just a man, the same as you or I.
When I die -- spend 5 minutes, have a drink and a toast for me, burn me up and throw the remains in the ocean. I'll be dead, why would I care what you do with me?
I'm one of the biggest nerds alive but seriously if Jobs is this big in your life because he gave you a phone, you have issues. Given the history of Jobs decisions do you think he would ever "delay the iphone 4s out of respect of someone super important like the president" ? No he wouldn't If you wave a magic wand and steve jobs was alive and in perfect health you know he would be tap dancing on the grave of the google person most responsible for droid/nexus.
Can't wait till this news of him fades away -- much like the phones and company he temporarily resurrected.
