(CNN) -- This week, on an atypical Tech Check podcast, the crew devotes the entire show to reflecting on the life and legacy of Steve Jobs, the iconoclastic co-founder and CEO of Apple who died Wednesday after a battle with cancer.

Doug Gross, John Sutter and Stephanie Goldberg go beyond the news of the day to consider what Jobs' lasting legacy will be as not just a master showman and salesman, but as a visionary and pop culture figure who transcended the tech world.

For our Comments of the Week, instead of looking to our stories we reflect on the words that some of Jobs' key contemporaries, and rivals, had to say in the wake of his death.

Facebooks' Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Google's Larry Craig are all quoted recalling Jobs as a unique figure.
