Steve Jobs, RIP

America has lost a genius tonight. Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder and technological visionary, succumbed to cancer after battling the disease for the past several years. He was 56.

Jobs made life easier for billions around the world. He was there when Apple came out with the Apple II in the 1970s. He helped launch the Macintosh in the 1980s. He was CEO of (what’s now) Pixar Animation Studios from 1986-2006 after a falling out with his company. He returned to the computer world in 1997 and helped Apple become the juggernaut it is today.

The IPOD and ITUNES changed the way we listen to music. The IPAD provided a tablet sized computer. The IPHONE offered more gadgets than a Swiss army knife.

Jobs gave people products they wanted. Those products changed the world, interconnected the globe and made life more enjoyable for countless people.

RIP.
