Dell Computers founder Michael Dell
Today the world lost a visionary leader, the technology industry lost an iconic legend and I lost a friend and fellow founder. The legacy of Steve Jobs will be remembered for generations to come. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to the Apple team.

Robert A. Iger, the President and CEO of Disney
Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an “original,” with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.

Steve Case, co-founder of AOL
I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the age.

Tim Carmody, Wired writer
I'm on my way to PHL to see my son, who uses a device Steve Jobs invented to help him talk. He will never know. He will never know.

Kevin Smith, director
Our parents had JFK, we had Steve Jobs. Edison gave us electricity, Jobs gave us the Jetsons in real life. We lost an icon today. Mourn him.

RIP Steve Jobs. Thanks, Steve, for making the world more science fictional.

Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesn't just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.
