Steve Jobs was a true creative genius who thought of ways to deliver intuitive computing, entertainment and communications in ways that no one else could even dream of doing. As ABC News said "He was the Thomas Edison of our Time". He will be sorely missed.

I think it is deplorable that ALMANAC runs a story about Steve Jobs which is equal in size to the story of a runaway croc.

Most of the RIGHT here is in for a surprise at the changes which are going to occur as a result of meetings which did include Jobs and the President and the billionaires who are squeaky clean.
Then, add two and two and you will probably find out why investigation rumors of the locals are not hallucinations, but based on protecting the piles of money which are part of anti Obama plans.
This area does not play fair, nor does it face the simple realities.Most of my time is out of the country, but I practically can see the happenings here live by Google in slo mo. Rumors do not just begin here in SAN MATEO COUNTY....they are in Sacramento, as well as Washington (if anyone read deeply into Attorney General's article) and in London where they know more about Silicon Valley than the average TWITter.
Again, there is more tribute being paid Jobs all over the world than in his own County. I find that immoral.

Can someone translate what was written above by Mr. Gordon?

Mr. Gordon, um, Steve Jobs was a Santa Clara County resident. There is much tribute being paid - check out his neighborhood, check out online commentary at PA Online and other places, incl Facebook, Twitter & local news. Yeah, some of his kids were educated in our county, & he also owned property in Woodside, but his most current residence was in Palo Alto.

The County line means something here??? There are public memorials all over the world --- all over Europe, Australia, China, etc., in every important newspaper, on every TV channel...and countless websites --- but Menlo Park's silence is understandable because there's a county border. (Even tho the Jobs family lived in the county)

Steve Jobs changed our lives and the world.

NO excuse for the local silence...except that people are too busy quarreling over local parking issues.

Hank,

"Can someone translate what was written above by Mr. Gordon?"

We don't know if R. Gordon is a Mr. or Mrs. or Miss.

Steve Jobs R.I.P.

Neighbor, I suspect that you are mistaken somewhat because local people are commenting on PA Online's main page instead of The Almanac page, for the most part - makes sense to me.

Hank, in answer to your question about a translation, here's one

"I'm Baaack!" (shudder)

R. Gordon - PLEASE take your meds.

Steve Jobs - you are, perhaps, the most inspirational person in the lives of those who were lucky enough to share this planet with you.
