I cried too. But when I first heard it, I thought it was just a rumour, since there are often rumours of a famous person passing away, that turns out their still alive (like when people thought the founder of Pokemon died during the earthquake/tsunami.) But sadly it's true, and I still remember saying, "Yeah, let's just hope he gets better, so we won't end up losing a genius." I guess those words were too late.
let's remember the man for the incredible legacy he left behind.... like Barak Obama said: "There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
