The technology world will never be the same. Thank you for everything and Godspeed Steve.

I was never a Apple fan but Steve Jobs has really changed the technology world and if he hadn't of came back to Apple in the 90s, Apple wouldn't be where it is today. Goodbye Mr Steve Paul Jobs.

Even though I am not an Apple Fan……It is still sad to see a man that had/has a vision and did a perfect job of making it true, die.

Steve Jobs if you are reading this……REST IN PEACE MY BROTHER……..You did the world of technology a great service and you will be remembered.

A quote by Obama about Steve Jobs:

‎"Obama:There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented"

May he rest in peace

This reminds me also of something I saw on Twitter; "10 years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash, now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash"

May he rest in peace

The kitten that used to be linked to here in this signature now has her forever home!! Thank you for taking the time to read this signature!
