Thank You, Steve Jobs: Contributions of a Legend

Steve Jobs - famed founder of Apple, the modern genius of our ubiquitous gadgets, innovative and legendary icon of our decade, I bid farewell to you. Rest In Peace Steve. Your legacy shall remain, your work shall be improved and cancer shall hopefully be one day eliminated. You are a legend, an icon, not doubt to that, and it was everyone's luck to have such a wonderful person like you in our world. You will be missed.

I've come across a few articles stating he was an over rated visionary but I don't believe this. He may not have done all of the work but he spent a great deal of time recruiting the best in the industry into Apple. He was a charismatic genius and had the ability to grab the attention of all around him. I can't remember who exactly but he went to one of the top people over at Coca-cola and said "do you want to sell sugar water all your life or do you want to help change the world" (or something along those lines). With those words he got the guy into Apple even though he refused at first.

He also left behind plans for the next four years of products: http://techspy.com/news/860...

He "revolutionised how music is listened to, how music is enjoyed, and how music is spread" - Exactly.

He did a LOT more work that most CEO's.

It's sad when most anyone dies, especially when it is a relative or close friend. But, to write such drivel, about a greedy corporate CEO that headed a Sue happy for-profit company is just nauseating.

The only level-headed article I have read about the death of Steve Jobs and the ridiculous emotions strangers feel about him is from a comedy article on the onion, matter of fact, here is the link:
