Regardless on your thoughts of the Mac/Windows divide (or, I guess, the iPad/vaporware divide ;-), you have to acknowledge that Steve Jobs has had an extraordinary influence on the daily lives of much of the world, through his work in the early days of Apple, promoting the personal computer, to the modern day mobile computing experience.
I wish him well, and hope that the industry can continue to innovate at the same pace with a less prominent Steve Jobs. I have often prayed for Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and other industry leaders and influential tech pioneers, so they can realize their influence on the lifestyles of many people and try to help people become more fully human, rather than 'slaves of the machine.'
Speaking of which... are smartphones the new idols?
