RIP Steve Jobs

by

There are moments in life when words fail us, and today is one of those moments. Tim Cook, Apple CEO sums it up nicely for many of us in his email below.

Team,

I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

We are planning a celebration of Steves extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email [email protected]

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steves death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

Tim

I would never have been who I am today w/o my lowly little Apple II computer. All of my life, I wanted to be a writer but I could not fathom typewriters…touch typing, error correction, feeding sheet after sheet of misused paper in and out of frustrating machines. I hated them; threw more than a few out of windows in my time. Steve Jobs’ ( and Woz’s!) little machine introduced me to the concept of word processing. However primitive it was in those glorious days, it made it possible for me to write and produce material as quickly as I could think. I owe everything to that first machine. Steve Jobs’ success was greater than any of the marvels he created because he empowered ordinary people to create and live their dreams, just as he did. Jobs was not the 20th century’s Edison…he was our Leonardo DaVinci and he will never be forgotten. Thanks, Steve. Good job!
