Steve Jobs was one of my idols growing up in college. As a business major and a marketer, I looked to Jobs and Apple for strategies on what should be done.


RIP.

My own farewell; Godspeed, Mr. Jobs (external link)

A fitting quote heard today:

"There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented." - Barack Obama

RIP, Steve. Thanks for everything. 

According to Wikipedia, the Xerox machine never went "consumer", so in that sense we can hand Jobs the credit for pushing things into the home computing environment!

The Xerox mouse cost on the order of $300 to manufacture. Jobs hired the Xerox engineer who developed it and gave him one mission - make it cheaper and with only one button.

A very sad day indeed, he was truly one of the crazy ones who made life better in ways we never consider.

Oscars 2012 - the first year that a passed executive will get more applause than the actors during the "in memorium" segment.

I hear twitter was overloaded and having issues last night with everyone tweeting about it..not sure that anyone else could have managed that.

Needed to say something about Steve Jobs of Apple.

Like all of you, he touched all of our lives in one form or another with his apple computers, Iphones and Ipads. My techno not so athletic son was one of the first to get that old apple macintosh computer. His very athletic and highly competetive dad never really understood this new thing called a computer and struggled to understand why his son wasnt out playing tennis with him and racing around on motocross bikes with dad. Back in the 80's Dad was slowly figuring out some things on computers while my Techno son was pursuing a masters degree in the IT field. As dad got more and more dependent on computers his son was flourishing in the computer world.

In the mid 90's, the photography field made the switch to digital and i figured that my dreams of eventually retiring and becoming a top notch photographer were over. My son discovered his passion for photography and he and I began having long talks and started working together in the photography field. I knew nothing about the technical side, my son knew everything, and we both had a vision for where we were going to go. He came to live with me after the economy collapsed. Together we both worked on the things we wanted to do. My son eventually returned to california and is working for a large company and managing the IT department and he's making great money.

So you might ask yourself why the long story ?

All this was possible because of the technology and inovations the Steve Jobs created for all of us. The tide had turned for me. This highly athletic dad could no longer compete. Was too hard to run with the college kids when your 43 and they are 16. My techno son was helping the old man get into this new techno world of computers. It brought us very close. We talk about photography, computers and stuff in general and the technology brought us close in a way that was never possible in the past. Needless to say, while Steve Jobs family is probably devesdated over his death, what he did with his life has brought myself and countless others closer to our loved ones by ways we could have never dreamed of in the past. Something so simple like my Iphone and a text message from my kids lights up your day like nothing else could.

For all Steve Jobs has done to make this great big world smaller by letting a father in Minnesota feel like his sons in California are just a text message away, I for one am eternally grateful because he made my life better with his visions and technologys the he created. I think he will be greatly missed but his family should have great comfort knowing the impact he has made for families across this country Like mine.

Michael Jackson came pretty close to shutting down the Web, but yeah - not many among us could accomplish that.

I found it ironic that there was a slideshow on CNN about him and I couldn't play it back because I was viewing it on my iPad and the gallery was Flash based.

That and no blue ray player on the Mac...:)

I was really never a big fan, but admired his innovative ways for sure. Sounds like he did it "his way", even if that meant stepping on a lot of toes along the way.

Unfortunately, I think stepping on toes is a necessity to becoming that successful...if we all went through life looking out for everyone else we would never get anywhere...at least IMO.

True. You have to be a little bit of an a-hole to get ahead in life. Right or wrong, that's usually the case. :)

So I am wondering why I am still where I am...:lol:;)

Got tired of Blu-ray Discs after playing the third one. After that, I bought a BR drive for my Mac and just ripped them and put them on a server as MKV files. Done with all those menus and slowness of Blu-ray Discs.
