I'm quite a bit older older than Steve and remember the very beginnings of Apple. What a visionary that guy was and even though I was never an Apple fan, I have an enormous amount of respect for what he has achieved in his life.

RIP Steve

My profession is in Information Systems and I am here today due to the inspiration of Steve Jobs, Wozniak and Apple. They made computing cool and fun. I am certain I wouldn't be doing this if it had not been for Apple.

Thank you Steve Jobs for your great contribution and rest in peace.

I was really sad... He was my hero. His speech inspired me, and I really want to share it to my BMW fellows...



Not really long, just 15 min, but it is the most meaningful speech I have ever seen.
Rest in peace, Steve Jobs...
