Steve Jobs Dies

Apple announced today that Steve Jobs has died.  Their website says:

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

As one who has spent time in both engineering and marketing in the electronics industry, I feel that Jobs had an uncanny brilliance in bridging the gap between technology and humanity. I believe he truly changed the world – in a dramatic way – particularly for those of us with a passion for engineering and technology.  

May he, in his absence, continue to inspire and motivate us.

Condolences to all at Apple from all of us here at EE Journal.
