I read the news last night at around 7 my time, and I just can not get my head around it. A visionary has left this world for hopefully a much better place.
Many will remember Steve for his accomplishments just with Apple, but let us also not forget his other business achievements and innovations. Without Steve, we never would have seen the likes of Toy Story, Wall-E, or any other Pixar animation, because he was very much behind Pixar. Without Steve , we would have never seen the NeXT computer, as he was behind this as well.
When you look at true innovation, true genius, Steve Jobs was the embodiment of this. No, he didn’t do everything himself, but he did so very much. We have lost a true pioneer, a true inventor, and a true genius today, perhaps one of the last of a very dying breed.
Wherever you are, Mr. Jobs, I do hope that you find the peace you have spent your lifetime looking for, and that your body is finally at rest. Thank you for a life very well spent, you were a true legend. May you never, ever be forgotten
