October 7, 2011 -

Apple fans are bidding farewell to the company's co-founder Steve Jobs and they're paying tribute in all kinds of ways including, very fittingly, online.

For young Steve Jobs. It was his very first TV interview on KGO-TV.

Now "deathly ill" really has been deathly. And admirers of Steve Jobs are left with the job of honoring him. Be it on real apples or with designer Jonathan Mak's profile of Steve Jobs in the bite of the Apple logo. Or the Wall Street protester who crossed out the Steve but continued to demonstrate for jobs. Or the fan with the e-candle on an iPad at an Apple store.

A guy by the name of Mike Matas who says he once worked at Apple posted photos of Steve Jobs making funny faces on a photo software app. Even sticking out his tongue. Remind you of anyone, Einstein?

At the latest iPhone introduction the day before Jobs died, his seat was left empty. And the morning of his death, this rainbow was snapped above apple headquarters by a product design contractor.

Comedy shows made fun of all his i-products. Laugh at the iRack but admire the iRod. Ipod shuffles were left on a flower at an apple store.

Just before Steve jobs death became public, Sarah Palin announced that she would not run for president. Well, Jobs even got credit for the timing of his death.

'In his final act of benevolent genius, Steve Jobs overshadows sarah Palin," tweeted a palin critic.

While some are honored with an eternal flame, what's the equivalent for a cyber visionary? At the XKCD blog, this is the eternal flame for Steve Jobs. The spinning wheel that means you wait.

At an Apple store in New York City, even the apples had fruit flies paying their respects.
