Maybe I was just a little out of the loop with knowing how sick Steve had really become as of recent. When I heard of his passing earlier this week I was in complete shock. I knew he had a rare form of pancreatic cancer, and had stepped down as CEO of Apple in late August, but I had no idea he had become as ill as he had. Sure he had lost a lot of weight and looked frail when he unveiled the iPad 2 in March, but he still had the fiery and bright outlook that Steve Jobs had been known for. I am willing to bet he carried that same outlook until they day he passed.
The world lost another Thomas Edison, another Ben Franklin, another Alexander Graham Bell. Steve Jobs was surely the greatest inventor and genius of my generation. Previously to typing this blog post on my iMac, I researched something on my iPad after sending a text message on my iPhone. That just goes to show you how much Mr. Jobs influenced the world and my life.
He will be missed by all and eternally remembered for the visions he had and the technology that he created.
Rest In Peace Steve Jobs
