There are probably a billion Steve Jobs post out there, but I feel like I have something to say about the man, too.
The Associated Press wrote this fantastic obituary that brought me to tears as I was waiting for the bus this morning. The thing about Steve Jobs, at least for me, is that, yeah, he was the CEO of this huge company, but he still seemed like an amazing, compassionate human being. He was real. And he changed the world.
I stop to think about where the world would be today if it weren't for him. Even if you don't own a Mac or use an iPod or own an iPhone, just think about how much he changed technology. If it weren't for him constantly innovating, PCs probably wouldn't be as advanced as they are because they wouldn't have Macs to keep up with. Jobs kept technology moving forward - no matter how you cut it.
I am unbelievably sad he's gone. I didn't know the man. I never met him. But I feel a connection to him every time I open my laptop or fiddle with my phone.
RIP Steve Jobs. The world will miss you.
