Rest in Peace, Steve

On Apple’s homepage:

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away yesterday, Oct. 5, at age 56. After being diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer, he lived for 7 more years to create the iPod Nano, iPhone & iPad and so much more. Leader. Visionary. Renegade. Inspiration. Legend.

Some tributes I found online, including Los Angeles Times, CNN, ZDNet, and Time’s Techland. The latter  has links featuring words from his family and other notables and memorable Apple commercials.

Writer David Magee says “Steve Jobs made a big dent in the world. Steve Jobs was the greatest tech CEO ever” in this International Business Times editorial.

Before he edits his video on his MacBook Pro, musician David Choi shares his thoughts of how Jobs affected his life as an artist and leveled the playing field for all artists.

And I had to post Jobs’ June 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University, “How to Live Before You Die.”
