RIP Steve Jobs

It’s such a rare occurrence that the world of business and/or technology ever mixes with mainstream culture enough for almost anyone to know the name of a particular CEO, but with Steve Jobs that really was the case.  For some, Steve Jobs WAS the ‘friendly’ face of Technology.  Remember the ‘Mac Vs. PC’ adverts (featuring Mitchell & Webb over here in the UK?).  Steve Jobs WAS Mac.  He also brought a level of excitement to the WWDC events and other product launches that was somehow always lacking without his presence.  People liked him and quite frankly that’s a massive achievement for any human being, let alone the CEO of a multinational company.  He will be missed by many, both inside and, critically, outside of the Industry.
