Steve Jobs - Insanely Great

When Steve Jobs stepped down from his post as Apple's CEO due to his illness I wrote a blog post paying tribute to his leadership prowess and unrelenting push for innovation. As you may or may not know, my husband's business is focused on and around Apple. I thought it only fitting he write today's tribute as a guest blogger so, dearest husband, take it away.

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.

Steven P Jobs 1955 - 2011

Thank you for those thoughts, sweetheart. Steve made our technology-filled lives better by making the unthinkable attainable. Rest In Peace, Steve, and thank you.

How have you been touched by Steve Jobs' visionary gifts to the world?

Mark was 16 years old when I bought my first Apple computer; a 2E. I did not know at the time how the Macintosh would eventually change my life, but when I was forced to find a new career in 1992, a Mac and my son's guidance put me on the right path. The creations of Steve Jobs' vision have been a part of my life for most of the past three decades and made it possible for me to do things I would never, otherwise, have been able to accomplish. Thanks, Steve! And thanks, Mark!
