Rip Steve Jobs

Recommended Posts

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple passed away today. It's kinda been weird to say that. Though he retired from being the CEO last month, and most everybody knew his health was failing, it's really weird for it to actually be true.

 

It's really quite strange for me. I didn't know the guy, I never met him. I did pass about 8ft from him in the Apple quad one time. I've not been a devoted Apple follower my whole life, only really getting into Apple products in about 2004 (my second year of university). Even so, I still feel an oddly intense sense of loss.

 

Apple will go on, and they will continue to create the kind of product they have always made. That really is the legacy.

 

Anyway. A couple of links (noting that these main pages won't be valid in a few days):
