A future without Steve Jobs is tough to imagine. The world as we know it has been greatly shaped by this visionary. One can only hope that the future without Steve Jobs is just as creative and classy.
Here’s a note from the Apple Board about Steve Jobs’ death:
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
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.
His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
You can share remembrances with Apple at email@example.com. Here is a post from the eve of his stepping down as CEO.
Do not therefore consider this life as an object of any moment. Look back on the immense gulf of time already past; and forwards, to that infinite duration yet to come, and you will find how trifling the difference is between a life of three days and of three ages.
Let us then employ properly this moment of time allotted us by fate, and leave the world contentedly; like a ripe olive dropping from its stalk, speaking well of the soil that produced it, and of the tree that bore it.
RIP Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011
