SAN FRANCISCO - Apple Inc fans paid tribute to Steve Jobs on Wednesday, but expressed mostly sadness at his resignation as CEO and aired their fears for the health of the technology giant's guiding visionary.

Jobs, who has been on medical leave since January, will carry on as chairman of the company he co-founded in the late 1970s, but it is unclear how much he will contribute.

"Go out while you're still on stop - well played, Steve Jobs. Well played," tweeted a user called Lance Robotson, under the hashtag "#fanboy", the half-mocking slang for Apple fanatics.

"Live long Mr. Jobs", a user called 'tmizerek' posted on AppleInsider, a news site for Apple followers.

"Please God don't let him be that sick" added 'guch20'
