R.I.P. Steve Jobs, BoingBoing Tribute & Bill Gates Quote

The buzz around the internet at the moment is about the sad loss of the ‘Apple’ of many persons eye, Steve Jobs who, as anyone worth their salt should know, was the backbone of Apple.


I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.

Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.
