RIP Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs passed away today. Now it bears mentioning that I'm no Apple fanboy. In fact, I look at them as the "honored opposition." But Steve Jobs has really helped form and shape the world I live in. GUIs, MP3 Players, Smartphones, Tablet PCs, Personal Computers, Mice, Pixar... ...none of these things would have become as widespread as they have as quickly as they have without Steve Jobs's influence. I respected him, and I acknowledge his genius. I was hoping he'd be around to keep Microsoft and Google sharp for many decades to come, and now he's gone. Rest in peace, Steve.
