R.I.P. Steve Jobs 1955-2011

http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/10/jobs/

Didn't see eye to eye with the man a lot of the time, but he was visionary to be sure. May not have liked him but damn sure respected him. Brought a lot of things to life that we use today. He may not have invented them all himself but he sure could make whatever Apple was making seem like it was the best that ever was or could be, and sell a billion of them. One in a million person.

RIP Steve

BURNOUT.....
Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.

I got my first Job when I finished Active Duty Air Force with Apple...Steve wasn't back yet but what a nice Company to work for I just needed something better at the time and left for a Job as a Field Engineer but will never forget my experience with Apple and to see how far they have gone since I last worked for them in 1994 ....RIP STEVE

LOL I love that pic! It'll be interesting to see what happens to apple. It started off well, the fired him, then didn't do so well, got him back then did well again. My dad think they'll have flash now and I started laughing.

No way, HE build too good a company, and surrounded himself with genius people. Apple will continue to be number one.
