Remembering Steve Jobs One Year Later

SMS Text

Today marks the passing of the most influential technological innovator of this generation. One year ago today, Steve Jobs passed out of this life and into legend. As time continues to put distance between memory and the man himself, he will continue to become more mythical than human.  Despite all of his personality faults and personal shortcomings, the world will remember Steve Jobs for the impact he had on our day to day lives.

His legacy continues to thrive in the business decisions made not only at Apple, but by any company worldwide that has captured his vision of a mobile world. When Mark Zuckerburg tells the world that Facebook is now a mobile company, you can thank Steve Jobs and the iPhone for it.

More than a few super-fans will be honoring his memory by participating in Black Turtleneck Day.

    Thanks for posting this. I didn’t know it’s been 1 year already. I remember where I was when I found out he passed.

    I love the video tribute on the Apple site. He’d be proud of the quality of it and imagery used.
