In life, you had the rare honor of being described with almost all the adjectives people could lay their hands on – eccentric, passionate, prickly, brilliant, ego-centric and visionary. But nobody can deny that the $300+ Billion Apple empire wouldn’t have happened without you – only you.
And despite long periods of ailment, your death on Wednesday at the age of 56 prompted a global gasp as we all remember how much you have changed our lives in the worlds of computing, music and mobile phones, communications, information access and entertainment.
And we will continue to do so.
Goodbye, Steve. Rest in Peace.
