RIP Steve Jobs

So, Steve Jobs has died at the early age of 56. Those who know me know that I was no fan of Apple, but it is hard to dispute Steve Jobs influence on the world of computers.

From the iMac and iPod to the iPhone and the iPad, each and every one could be called a design classic. Were they perfect? No, but dammit they looked amazing.

It should be remembered that Jobs was not just Mr. Apple, he had other successes away from all things Mac. In 1986 Jobs bought Pixar from Lucasfilm. Twenty years later, in 2006, Pixar was sold to Disney for $7.4 Billion!

So, RIP Steve Jobs, the world of computers has lost one of is most interesting characters and will be a more boring place without him.
