im very sorry the man died (as i would feel for anyone) but cant quite see why its such a big deal and why every sodding website has to keep going on about it. He (or his products) are not the most important thing in my life.

I'll be very sad when James Dyson dies. A visionary and innovator.

... he'll be sorely missed; there will be such a large vacuum upon his wake.
