Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

Way too young, way too soon.

Steve Jobs was arguably one of the most prolific and innovative tech creators in the last decade.  His ideas and releases drove not only the products produced by Apple, but also forced other hardware and software companies to work harder.

Steve Jobs continually kept Apple products at the forefront of what consumers wanted and would buy.  In addition to cult-making designs, Jobs steered Apple to produce products that were robust and easy to use.  This combination created a value that kept customers coming back again and again as well as adding new customers at a steady rate.

Showmanship was also a strength of Jobs.  His product announcements became must-attend events for the press and drove the rest of the tech industry to attempt similar events.

To the family of Steve Jobs; I add my condolences to the millions you will receive over the next days.  To Apple; I hope you continue the legacy.  To all of us in the technology industry; let’s step up the innovation and make Steve proud.

RIP Steve, you will truly be missed.
