I want to cry. I don’t know why. I think that we have all lost someone important in this world. I feel cheated by the loss of his reality bending superpowers.
Steve Jobs – RIP.
If I may be so bold, I would say that I aspire to be like him – to have a net positive impact on the world – to impact the world in such a way that when my time comes to leave this world, I can say that my time here was not wasted and that the world is a better place as a result of my passing through it.
While Steve has achieved a lot of greatness, his second act at Apple will not be surpassed by anyone else anytime soon. The world got the iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iMac, iBook, etc. These were all revolutionary products in one way or another.
Let us also not forget Woody and Buzz Lightyear who lit up the lives of a whole other generation.
Steve Jobs signs off for the last time.
PS: Visiting Apple’s website actually made me cry.
