Kernel Panic

A kernel panic is a message displayed by an operating system when it encounters a fatal error from which it can not recover.  Alas, Apple has encountered one at the highest level recently.  The man who put Cupertino on the map has left One Infinite Loop.

This photo shows the Apple Reseller in Dublin, where they have created a memorial display in their front window.  There is an iPad in the window, pointing to this page.

Thanks Steve, you made Silicon Valley that much more awesome.


  1. Kernel panic. I really get it. What a great post!

  2. Wow, I applaud you for your outstanding geekiness! Not many people outside of programmers and sysadmins know what a kernel panic is. My hat's off to you madam. Hopefully your system has never experienced a kernel panic. To you Windoze users: That's the blue screen of death.
