Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

steve jobs

By now, I’m sure we’ve all heard the sad news of Steve Jobs’s untimely passing after a long, brave battle with pancreatic cancer. This not being a tech blog, perhaps it doesn’t quite fall under the banner of things covered by a little corner of the internet where camp is queen. That said, it would feel even more inappropriate to not offer a moment of gratitude to Mr. Jobs for all that he’s done throughout the years.

So thank you, Mr. Jobs, for the iMac and the MacBook and the iPod and the iPhone that have changed how we interface with technology and experience and enjoy music and film. They help make this blog possible.

Thank you for the U2 iPod:

I liked that one quite a bit, obviously.

Thank you for your role in Pixar, a studio whose output continually reminds us of the beauty, warmth, and humanity you can dream up on a computer and put on the big screen.

Mostly, though, just thank you.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs.  You will surely be missed, but your visionary accomplishments will live on forever.
