In Memoriam: Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
My personal opinion of Steve Jobs doesn't matter. All I need to say is that I learned about his death while checking the news on my iPod Touch, and I'm writing this blog entry on my MacBook Pro. Even if I didn't have an Apple laptop, chances are good I wouldn't have any laptop at all if not for Jobs and what he (along with Woz and Bill Gates and Paul Allen and all the others) brought to the computer industry -- not to mention the music industry and the entertainment industry and the film industry, and the industry of industry itself.
I'm sad he's gone, and I'll miss him, not only because he was a visionary whose genius brought me countless hours of fun, but because he was so charming, even when you hated him.
