The man behind Apple is no more

Steve Jobs passed away yesterday. I have never used any of his inventions yet but I still can revere the amazing genius that he actually was. He was able to see value in the field of technology specifically computers in 60s way before most of us even knew anything about it. His amazing journey and the kind of digital products that he came up with captured the imagination of people throughout the world. A true leader he was!

The number of messages that we see post his death indicate the influence that he had on this specific age group of people. Particularly the upmarket professionals and students who are in their 20s and 30s now.

The emotive value of his loss is testimony to the fact that the more expansive a life one leads, the deeper the loss of that person is sensed once he/she leaves.

He will surely continue to inspire several people in the years to come.
