With utmost sadness and a heavy heart, we learned just minutes ago from a brief statement sent out by Apple that its co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs, has died. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve”, the statement continued. He was 56 years old.
No words can put into context the impact Jobs had on the modern world. Through his persistence, very often at odds with the marketplace and even Apple staffs, he was able to alter the landscape of our relationship with technology. In doing so, Jobs also enable all of us, especially users of the array of Apple gadgets, to envision the possibilities beyond the horizon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jobs’ family and love ones. Collectively, we say “Thank You, Steve. We Will Miss You.”
