In Memory of Steve Jobs

One year ago this week, our world lost one of the most brilliant and innovative minds of modern times. Steve Jobs (Feb. 24, 1955-Oct. 5, 2011) left behind a legacy of technology and marketing prowess that is unparalleled, and just might be for quite a while.

No matter if you’re a PC or a Mac, Steve Jobs’ effect has surely touched your life, whether it’s the iPhone in your pocket, the iTunes on your desktop or the DVD copy of “Toy Story” on your shelf. From his early days in a garage with Steve Wozniak to his resignation as Apple’s CEO on August 24, 2011, Jobs was a visionary whose products literally changed the world.

Not only did he help us get rid of floppy discs, Steve revolutionized computer design (remember how ugly they used to be?), and he was responsible for creating a device so universally popular that most people refer to any Mp3 player, no matter the brand, as an iPod.

Thanks, Steve. Your passion and perseverance continue to be an inspiration to us all.
