Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011)

Steve Jobs died yesterday, taken at the early age of 56. Under his guidance…

Apple changed the way we think about computing.
Apple changed the way we buy and listen to music.
Apple changed the way we use mobile phones.
Apple changed the way we read.
Apple changed the way public speakers present their material.
Apple changed the way computers look and feel.

And yet this is an oversimplification of all that happened under the watchful eye of Steve Jobs. Wearing the same black mock turtleneck, jeans, and white New Balance shoes, Jobs dazzled the masses with one product launch after the other, almost always ending the presentations with “one more thing.”

Unfortunately, there will not be “one more thing.” But the fingerprints Steve has left on the technological, musical, artistic, and entrepreneurial worlds are everywhere to be seen. Steve will be missed, but he won’t be forgotten any time soon.

I’ll miss you, Steve.
