Apple’s Steve Jobs Dies – Bloomberg

609px-Steve_Jobs_WWDC07 - wikimediaWhether you agreed with his corporate philosophies or not. He was a still a brilliant 56 year old fellow human being who has finally lost a terrible battle with cancer. On the plus side, he co-founded Apple, Inc. and several other companies of note while he was away from Apple, then came back and pulled Apple out of it’s economic doldrums to become a technological giant in first the mobile devices arena and has begun to play catch up on the desktop/laptop arena as well.

I definitely didn’t agree with a lot of his philosophies, corporately or patently, but he did bring about some great innovations. I would love to have seen Apple move the other direction to keep up their old revolution persona from 1984, but that was obviously not to be in this corporate environment.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. No one deserves to battle or lose the battle with the demon called cancer. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

  1. I’ve never owned anything Apple or Mac. That’s not necessarily by conscious choice. It just seemed to happen that way. I think that Jobs was very influential in leading us to where we are technologically these days. He’ll be missed. He won’t be forgotten, though. They’ll talk about him two centuries from now like we still do about Edison, Graham-Bell, and Tesla today.

    R.I.P. Steve.

    • Yes, I think that is so true. He was so influential that he will likely be talked about 200 years from now just like we do Edison, Tesla, Graham-Bell and other innovators of their day today.
