Despite the fact that I've never owned an Apple product, you just can't ignore the impact that Apple/Jobs has had on our "digital lives"...

If you haven't seen it, watch Jobs' commencement speech from 05 at Stanford. He speaks a lot of death in it, very insightful. RIP

His recounting his cancer diagnosis, and his views on death and living life one day at a time were quite inspiring. Kind of explains the certain lack of energy at the Apple announcement yesterday. They had to know he was near death. RIP Steve, thanks for the innovation.

‎"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement address, 6/12/2005

From that same speech:
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on."

I'm not surprised after seeing the photos of him a few days after he stood down, but still sad none the less.

As was said above, he didn't change a generation, he helped forge one. Mac lover or not, this man has helped your life become better, even if only a little bit. Really was a true legend and an outstanding example for people.

He was always in my "3 people you'd invite to a dinner party".

RIP Steve Jobs. And thank you.

Ultimately, this will have an impact on the entire industry.

It's a very sad day and a very sad loss.

Goodbye Steve Jobs

This may not be the most appropriate forum to post such a topic but I couldn't help it:
every single one of my weddings has been edited on a Macintosh product. Steve Jobs was the Ben Franklin of our time.
