Twoppics, taking a look at what people on Twitter are saying about the passing of a technological icon.
“What we see as your music is not in CDs in your cabinet anymore, it’s on your iPod.”
Steve Jobs was the man behind the iPod, iPad, iPhone, but more importantly, he was the man who brought the personal computer to the masses, starting in the late 70’s.
“Introducing Apple II, the easy to operate home computer…”
And so it’s fitting that so much of the world is able to remember him on the devices he helped create.
From celebrities like Tom Hanks…

Steve Jobs was better than Santa Claus, because he'd show up once a year and offer us toys that we'd never even imagined could exist. #iSad

…the Twittersphere is full of those remembering Jobs for everything from his products and high-tech intellect to his well-documented quotes…
“I see most things in life as a Bob Dylan or Beatles song.”
And those quotes are showing up across the Twitterverse, thanks to people like Ashton Kutcher…
"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected." - #SteveJobs

“Hello, I’m a Mac…and I’m a PC…”
John Hodgman is the PC in those commercials, and he’s taken to Twitter to honor Jobs…
Everything good I have done, I have done on a Mac.
