Last night, Facebook and news websites exploded with RIP Steve Jobs messages. I would like to join everybody in remembering Steve.
This page contains statements issued by Steve’s peers, such as Bill Gates, the heads of Google, and even President Obama:
The following video clip captures very well the spirit of the computer industry and how Steve Jobs bucked the system. A computer engineer implies that Steve is technologically incompetent and then rattles off some minutiae about Java programming. To this, Steve responds with the statement that technology shouldn’t be designed in a way where features are pushed on consumers. Technology should be sold as the solution to a customer’s problem, regardless of the underpinnings. Anyone who knows me will know I base my career on that concept.
