Steve Jobs 1955 - 2011

Steve Jobs, the visionary who co-founded Apple Computers, brought GUI interfaces to home computers, and revolutionized the portable music and cellular phone industries, has passed away at the age of 56.

This is a tremendous loss to the technology world.  It would seem facile to try to sum up Jobs’ career and impact in a few short sentences.  We had planned a retrospective of Jobs’ career following his departure from Apple in late August, but hope to provide one in the coming weeks.
