Farewell, Steve Jobs: 1955-2011Posted: October 7, 2011
Wednesday, the Tech World lost on of its Greatest Minds Goodbye Mr. Jobs. Below is a Post from the guys over at Extreme Tech. I couldn’t have said it any better, so below is their post, as I echo their sentiments.
“Steve Jobs, the enigmatic and creative master that breathed life into Apple, the personal computer, technology, and the world, has passed away at the age of 56. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and a son.
We have already written about Steve Jobs’ legacy at Apple, but we should briefly touch upon his impact on Silicon Valley, and thus the lives of almost everyone on Earth. Jobs, along with his engineer friend Steve Wozniak, was the man behind the first popular, low-cost computer. Jobs created the concept of an all-in-one computer in the Macintosh, which lives on today in the iMac, and hundreds of millions of smartphones and tablets. In 1997 Jobs returned to Apple, and in 2001 he launched the iPod — a device that drove the revolution of the antiquated, analog music industry into the digital beast that it is today. This paved the way for the iPhone and then the iPad, two products that forever changed the course of consumer technology.
Steve Jobs will be sorely missed by his family, his friends, his comrades in Cupertino, and of course you and I. Rest in peace.”
