The technology world was abuzz tonight over the death of one of the leaders of the consumer electronics industry. Steve Jobs died just a day after the latest Apple product announcement.
I never met Steve Jobs, but the technology he helped shape have had a profound impact on my life in many ways, from the Mac Classic I used at a small-town newspaper in 1996 to the MacBook Pro I’m typing this on.
I do want to say this: Apple products have had a tremendous impact on college media over the years since the introduction of the Macintosh.
I hope the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak continues to produce cool stuff that pushes technology forward.
Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs.
