Tears and tributes of Apple's legions

Millions of people used the technology Steve Jobs invented to pay tribute to him.

Tapping out comments on iPhones and iPads as well as the devices produced by Jobs’s rivals, Apple fans deluged social network sites with their messages.

Twitter hashtags #iSad and #ThankYouSteve were two of the most popular forums for tributes.

Dino Lazaro was one of thousands to retweet a simple sentence which summed up the mood.

‘3 Apples that changed the world: the one Eve ate, the one that fell on Newton's head & the one that Steve built. #iSad,’ he wrote.

Hillery Andani tweeted ‘#iSad because the creator of apple just passed away.

‘#ThankyouSteve for your cleverness of creating the apple products. You’ll be missed’.

Another ubiquitous post ‘Retweet if you are touching an Apple product,’ was tweeted by iFiddy Oloye 1.

Naveen R Kukreja also used Twitter to thank Jobs.
‘You left your mark on our desk, on our ears and in our hands.’

AlyaaGad tweeted ‘iWake, iCheck, iCry. RIP Steve Jobs; you were the greatest leader humanity ever knew.’

Comparisons to great historical figures were also abundant.

Ganyet posted this equation. ‘Steve Jobs = Thomas A. Edison + Walt Disney’

Jonathan Moss, meanwhile, tweeted the following message.

‘Steve Jobs was born out of wedlock, put up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college, then changed the world. What's your excuse?’
