This comes at a total shock to me. While I knew he was sick, before retiring, but I didn’t think it was that bad.
While I am not an Apple guy, I have to give Jobs credit for retaking his company and completely reinventing it. Jobs had the iMac and the Power Mac look completely different from the PC market and design, thus giving the Apple brand a different vibe and customer base. Out of that brand, another group of products were born via the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
Jobs also bought Pixar from George Lucas. From there, he helped turned the company from a FX branch to a movie studio that still makes millions today and has reshaped Disney. Jobs’ influence has changed the creative way Disney runs its company.Anyway, Steve Jobs will be missed.
