I’m barely qualified to write about Steve Jobs. I’ve only been a Mac lover for about 8 years; when I was younger I laughed at Mac users. When I started using Apple products, I only knew Steve Jobs as a name. In the past few years, though, I’ve witnessed the genius and discipline that Steve Jobs injected into Apple, and I’ve come not only to respect him, but to consider him a personal hero. I can’t express how deeply saddened I am that he’s gone.

Steve Jobs and his work changed the course of my life. I’m grateful. Thank you, Steve.
