The End of an Era: Steve Jobs passing away at the age of 56.
There is not a lot to add to this headline but to quote the Apple homepage (www.apple.com):
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.”
I was in the middle of a presentation when I heard the tragic news today, completely blown away by what this could mean for the industry, the microcosm Apple and the overall economy. I guess we will have to wait and see what will result out of this in the end. But let me put aside all the stupid talks about Steve Job’s role for Apple and the economy. A life has ended today. A truly great person has passed away. Even though it’s part of all our lives, it still hits you rock hard once you start thinking about it and realize that essentially, ALL is temporal.
There is a short video embedded. 6+ M hits on Youtube - not much more to add to that.
Godspeed, Steve Jobs. May your soul rest in piece.
