RIP Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 56 on October 5, 2011

Known as the "father of the computer revolution", Steve Jobs founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in 1976.

There is a interesting quote that I heard that was attributed to Mr. Jobs. It matches the mind of an innovator. It goes...
"There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will."
—Steve Jobs

While many speak well or ill of him due to either his vision or Chinese labor and lack of charity, I leave his accomplishments and life to speak for themselves.

Whether or not you liked him or Apple, he changes the face of a lot of industries.
