Steve Jobs, the founder and former CEO of Apple has died, and with a more than appropriate tribute to his incredibly simple but beautiful product design work, the Apple website simply carries his picture with the words “Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011”.
There is little doubt that Steve has affect the life of almost everyone that has used a computer, MP3 player or Smartphone. Even if you’ve never used an Apple product the Apple designs and software have influenced their competitors products and helped shape the technological world in which we live in today.
Apple say “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us fortunate enough to have worked with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple“.
