RIP Steve Jobs

The founder and creator of Apple tragically lost his battle with cancer yesterday at the age of 56. Jobs who created the iconic brand, and was behind the technology of the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad has left behind an incredible legacy, never has the death of a businessman reverberated with the masses in the way Jobs death has.

The technology Jobs created has revolutionized a generation now and for years to come. Apple has immeasurably changed the population’s interaction with technology, transformed the music industry and moved the world on in giant leaps. Even those who have never touched an Apple product will be moved by his death.

Comedian Stephen Fry says of Job "I don't think there is a human being on the planet who has been as influential in the last 30 years in the way culture developed [and] has proved quite so conclusively that passion and taste and belief are more important than a hard business head."

Reacting to Jobs' demise, a Twitter user named Matt Galligan wrote: "R.I.P. Steve Jobs. You touched an ugly world of technology and made it beautiful."

I think that says it all.
