Steve Jobs passes away

Steve Jobs, the Thomas Edison of our day, has passed away.  He dreamed of bringing computing to the masses, and he succeeded.  But he did much, much more than that.  He brought to us a revolution.  From the Apple computer, to the Mac, to the IPod, and then the IPhone and IPad all the other the great gadgets he and his company created,  our lives have been more fun and more productive.   He founded the company, Apple, in a garage then stepped aside for a time to pursue other technical interests, such as the NeXT systems and OS.  But then he returned to Apple to rescue and revive a company that has lost its way.  Oh, but he did much more that just revive Apple.  He had the vision to embrace other technologies and put his unique touch to them.  He spearheaded the creation of wonderful personal entertainment and communications devices and then married those to computing technologies, advanced operating systems and Internet content delivery; which turned Apple into a computing, communications and internet Juggernaut.  Steve Jobs was an inventor, businessman and visionary.  Most of all, he was a great man who gave his all, and even the last of his health, in pursuit of his dreams which have enriched all our lives.

  • It seems appropriate that I first read the news of Steve’s passing on my iPad. As I write this, my iPhone sits charging on the desk beside me. And yesterday, as I perused still images for inclusion in a video I’m directing, I admired the Mac computer they were being displayed on. The products of Steve Jobs’ genius are such an integral part of our lives that we, many times, take them for granted.

    Steve’s vision, his drive and his dedication to perfection has changed and improved our lives in so many ways. He will truly be missed.
