Weird. That other day — as I was about to go to sleep — I got this idea of listing people I look up to (who were still alive). Then I wake up today to the news that Steve Jobs has passed away. He was going to be on my list. Dammit why didn’t I post it here right at the moment I got the idea? Then I was going to write about the new iPhone that was announced on Tuesday but that feels slighty less important today. My Facebook feed is filled with different opinions regarding his passing; everything from people feeling sad to “he was just another leader of a big multinational corporation!”.
No matter what you think of him he did make a difference in the world of technology, that is more than evident while going on a Stockholm subway train. Everyone is using iPhones. I’m not turning this into a long winded tirade, I just wanted to be a part of this sad, sad day. Rest in peace, Steve — and thank you!
