Steve Jobs, visionary extraordinaire, has passed away.

Wednesday 5 October 2011

It is a truly sad day for computer aficionados everywhere, Mac and PC and Linux alike. With the passing of Steve Jobs – a unique and creative visionary – the world has lost a truly gifted person. I am not one to lament the passing of billionaire CEOs and celebrities, but Steve Jobs was different. Maybe it’s his Buddhist faith or that he was a vegetarian or perhaps it’s his success from humble beginnings – not just the invention, out of his family’s garage, of a whole new way of computing, but that he was an adopted child which has its own difficulties. He was a brilliant thinker and was willing to stick to his vision despite the monolithic domination of Microsoft and Windows. We’ll miss you Steve!
