RIP Steve Jobs

What can be said here that hasn’t already been said elsewhere. President Obama seems to have said it best when he said “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

ReviewMacSoftware would like to extend it’s condolences to the Jobs family – the extended family that is the Jobs’ and Apple. I can’t begin to imagine what they’re feeling today. All I can say is, I feel sad today as if I knew Steve personally. He was such a big personality in the IT world, and did so much amazing for the industry, the world will feel a smaller place now without him.

The world has lost a great innovator and forward thinker. I write this article on a MacBook Pro. Steve’s restoration of Mac has saved me (and my wife) countless hours of frustration, head banging, hand wringing and overall stress since we made the switch from PC to Mac. No amount of tribute here can express how grateful we are for that.

RIP Steve Jobs, you will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.

  1. No disrespect to Steve Jobs, but I think as a household name he will be quickly forgotten. To the next generation he’ll be but a blur, if that. Millions have seen him on stage announcing the latest Apple product, but that product will soon be replaced by a newer version, and so that iconic image of him will inexorably date his memory. Unlike Edison (to whom he has been compared), Jobs’ success was entirely dependent on his engineers’ creativity, from the other Steve onward. I think Jobs was primarily a Maestro of the art of branding — of himself and Apple — and as such will long be remembered and mimicked by students of the art.

    1. Hi Bruce,
      In some ways I agree with you – although if you think Edison was brilliant without the use of others you’re not quite right. A lot of Edison’s work built upon the work of others – though the others often aren’t credited for it. But I digress 🙂

      I think in the IT world Steve will be remembered for a long time. In the ‘outside’ world – perhaps not.

      But when I say never forgotten, I really meant by us – the people who write and read reviewmacsoftware.com.

      Thanks for your feedback.

      All the Best,
      Steve.
