Steve Jobs was the foundation of Apple. He made it a household name in business, entertainment, and technology. It’s beyond tragic that he’s passed; I have tears in my eyes for a man I never knew. Just goes to show how special he was to us.
Steve Jobs – innovator, dreamer, legend. Other news sources call him a “visionary” and “creative genius”. He was indeed a great man and the world just lost an icon in more fields than one.
