Farewell Steve Jobs

Midway though writing a blog entry about yesterday’s iPhone 4S launch, I’m struck with this totally unexpected news. Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple has passed away, aged 56.

Steve, and the company he helped create, have been an inspiration to millions – myself included. He is partly to blame for where I am today – and the passion I have for technology and design.┬áHe has helped make Apple one of the most prominent and exciting technology companies in the world, and while I’m sure his legacy will live on – and although the passion and enthusiasm he’s inspired in others will sustain that – it just wont be the same without him.

If you have a few moments, I recommend you watch his 2005 Stanford University commencement speech. It’s sad to hear him talking about death, and his hopes – but his speech is truly inspirational.

Thank you Steve, and may you rest in peace.
