Steve Jobs: Farewell to a Genius

When Steve Jobs’ life came to a premature end in October of 2011 many just became aware of the depth and breadth of his influence on society. From humble beginnings he and Steve Wozniak created Apple Computer. The rest, as they say, is history. But what a dense, impactful history it was.

Thanks largely to Jobs’ lasting influence, Apple remains one of the most important and influential companies in the world, with products that people anticipate for months, even waiting in long lines to get their hands on new gadgets. Years after Jobs’ death, you can still see his impact in the iPhone in your pocket or the new iPad sitting on your desk.
