Three apples revolutionized to the world: that of Eve, that of Newton and that of Steve Jobs.
RIP

Cute. But I wouldn't say Eve's Apple "revolutionized" the world.

I went to the Apple store in Raleigh today. Customers put apples, flowers and cards in front of the glass window. The Apple employees added a huge card inside the store by the door where customer could sign for Steve's family. It was amazing and very touching. RIP Steve Jobs.

While I haven't used that many Apple products, I've used a LOT of products that probably wouldn't exist without Steve Jobs' knack for repeatedly challenging the status quo and revolutionizing it all in the process. What a shame he had to go so soon.

Who woulda thunk that Steve Jobs and all of his essentially "gadgets" would have touched so many lives, in so many ways, that many of us never really realized until now.

Came across this quote today that maybe sums it up, from George Colony, the CEO at Forrester Research -
"My hope is that Steve inspires all of us in the technology business to stop creating confusing, poorly-designed, slow, complex, ugly, maddening products that weigh down rather than lift up the work and souls of people."

Having grown up in the Bay Area, and now living just ~15 minutes from Apple headquarters, I literally watched the dot-com and high-tech industry explode before my eyes. Steve Jobs & Apple have always been a huge part of this, and his presence will be greatly missed. I'm planning to visit the Apple campus this weekend, and will leave a few stones (Jewish tradition) on his memorial. RIP Steve.
