Apple founder Steve Jobs passed away today. I have always thought of him as the Thomas Edison of my generation. A true innovator. He started Apple in his garage in Silicon Valley and made it the world’s leading company.
He had been battling with cancer for years. Rest in peace, Steve Jobs.
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose” — Steve Jobs, 2005
What other editors had to say about the loss of Steve Jobs:
For me, Steve Jobs made computers totally accessible to the everyday user, when others made you learn their cryptic command structure. The iMac computer and its oh so friendly operating system were actually fun, and the introduction of fonts to personalize your use and help you express yourself, was simply amazing . Yes, it meant you needed to learn about fonts but that was fun! Additionally, the iPad was the next ground breaking step into the future of what computing and interpersonal connection can be. Long may you run, Steve Jobs, you are one of a kind. – Paul O’Shea
R.I.P. Steve Jobs.
The world mourns the loss of this technology pioneer. For me the technology connection runs a life time. I remember creating some of my first small chunks of code on a Mac in my grade school computer class.
