On April 1st, 1976, the world saw perhaps the greatest "joke" of all time when two hippy geeks came together to completely change the world. On that spring day so many years ago, the seeds of the world's most influential and most valuable company were first sown. 35 years later, the influences of Apple, Inc. are everywhere. Whether or not you are a fan of Apple, there is no arguing that the company has had an impact on nearly every person in America and many throughout the world. And most of the innovation has come from the driving vision of Steve Jobs.
Described by many as the Thomas Edison of our age, Steve Jobs' contributions are far reaching and will be documented by many in the coming days. But in the end, he just made our lives better. Better like the light bulb. Better like the car. Better like the telephone. Just simply better.
Thank you, Steve. The world is a better place because of you.
