I just hope no one here invested in the past couple days. Long term probably fine, but could be a rocky road short term.

Saw some pictures of him online that were taken since his resignation. Won't post them or put a link on here out of respect to the guy. Suffice it to say, it's extremely apparent his health is in a severe state of decline. I find it offensive TMZ would even take his picture in such a condition, let alone publish it.

Steve Jobs is one of my favorite people ever. Wishing him all the best, and hoping he gets through this ordeal.

How is it more respectful to come here and talk about it but not provide a link?

And you don't 'get through' pancreatic cancer. If Steve Jobs still wants to live a public life he's putting himself out there where bottom dwelling shit like TMZ can shoot him.

I know the prognosis for pancreatic cancer is very, very poor. Just this past year, we lost someone from my workplace to it. Just a horrible situation all the way around.

In Jobs' case, he's been battling this for years. When he initially got sick several years ago and people were writing him off then, he said he had a rarer, less agressive type and was apparently able to beat it without chemo or radiation. He managed to recover and, if nothing else, probably bought himself some more time before it came back in a much more agressive fashion.

He's been very secretive of his health so we don't know exactly what's going on right now, but with his resources and past success (if you can call it that) in battling this disease, if anyone has a chance of somehow beating this, it would have to be him. That's what I meant when I wished him luck and to get through this...obviously the odds are heavily stacked against him, but I'm pulling for him regardless.

No doubt that his money helped buy him extra time that others don't get - especially with his recent liver transplant. Survival rates/times on pancreatic cancer are horrible, and not much funding for research for it. Had a friend die of it a few years back. 37 years old, three kids under the age of 4. He made it 10 months from time of diagnosis, which is a pretty long time with that type of cancer because it's usually not diagnosed until stage 4.

That being said, I do believe he must have had the rarer, less aggressive type. 5-year survival rate on the more common form of pancreatic cancer is less than 1%.

Steve Jobs, the visionary in the black turtleneck who co-founded Apple in a Silicon Valley garage, built it into the world's leading tech company and led a mobile-computing revolution with wildly popular devices such as the iPhone, died Wednesday. He was 56.

I usually like to wait at least until the body has been removed from the residence but I'm not saying that's a hard and fast rule.

Seriously though, iPad, iPod, iPhone and Apple Computers?? What a fucking legacy and what kind of ungodly vision must one have to initiate that chain of world-changing shit?

I fear MacPhisto becoming self aware, not Skynet.

Not a forecast of the U.S. economy, the guy from Apple.

I merged this EW. There were a few replies already in the other Jobs thread.

And it is a bummer. You wonder what else did would have delivered.

Every time I notice this thread, I think it, so I'll type it.

I think a big reason it gets like 1/3 the federal funding that lung cancer and breast cancer get is because the celebrities who get diagnosed don't live long enough to start a campaign.

Pancreatic cancer has been linked to excessive pop drinking- not a joke.
Smoking doubles the risk, as well.

Steve Jobs, Casey Coleman, John Ritter, Benjamin Orr, Patrick Swayze, Michael Landon, Count Basie, Henry Mancini, Pavarotti, and my mom, who was 61 and drank a LOT of pop. Just sucks to be pretty much end-stage by the time you know what's up.
