The world of technology got a little smaller tonite with the incredibly sad news that a true visionary and brilliant mind had left us, Steve Jobs has passed. This blog wouldn't be here tonite if it weren't for the path that Steve Jobs blazed for us all.
Our society of instant gratification stems from all the development in Silicone valley, the computer age as some referred to it. But I often wondered what it would have been like to have a mind so far reaching into the unknown and so driven to make something better as he dedicated his entire life to. He was driven but brilliant, most creative people are to some extent. Yet every time Mr. Jobs came up with an idea, the whole world gasped with awe.
I remember when I saw the first iPhone and thinking at the time how he must have seen the tip of the iceberg so to say. If you could use a touch screen for a phone, why not a computer and hence, the iPad was so to follow as well as computer software making touchscreen a reality, not just something you saw on a TV drama.
True creative minds are very hard to come by and this evening we are all a little bit better for having Steve and his brilliant mind in our lives.
Thank you Steve for making us all feel like kids with new toys and improving our communication needs on a daily basis. You will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to your family and loved ones, for their loss is immeasurable for sure.
Good night and God bless you Mr. Jobs, we will miss you. You did change the world
