Nancy Jacobs left flowers this morning outside the Upper West Side Apple store in Manhattan before heading inside to take a class. Jacobs said she had never done anything like this before, but felt compelled because her 16-year-old and 14-year-old children were so affected by the news of Steve Jobs' death. Her son had learned of his death while reading the news on his iPad.

"They came in my room last night crying," she said. "What other CEO in America do they know the name of? It really touched me."

At a makeshift shrine on the sidewalk outside the Apple store in Boston, one person created a short timeline of Steve Jobs' by etching key dates in apples. 1955 is the year he was born; 1976 was the year Jobs co-founded Apple Computer; 1984 is the year Apple launched the Macintosh computer; 1997 is the year he became CEO; and 2011 is the year of Jobs' death.

College student David Rysin takes a photo of the shrine outside the Boston Apple store with his iPhone. Rysin became a loyal Apple customer after owning an iPhone and having good experiences with customer service, something he attributes at least in part to Steve Jobs. After hearing about Jobs' passing last night, "I spent more time studying the history of Apple than studying for my midterm exam in economics," he said.

At the Apple store in Boston, well-wishers left candles, cards, and photos. One person left a Post-in note with the expression "Stay hungry, stay foolish," which Jobs repeated at his now-famous commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005. It's a quote from the last edition of the Whole Earth Catalog, a book he called the "Google of its time."
