On Wednesday evening, this October 5th, in Palo Alto, California the world lost one of the most innovative minds since Thomas Edison. We bid farewell to the founder of Apple computers, Steve Jobs.
Jobs will join the pantheon of other historic business geniuses and innovators, including Henry Ford and his eponymous motor car company and Thomas Edison and his light bulb making GE company, as a man who changed the world by changing, or improving, the lives of ordinary people all over the world.
Our parents had JFK, we had Steve Jobs. Edison gave us electricity, Jobs gave us the Jetsons in real life. We lost an icon today. Mourn him.
Apple's Steve Jobs Is Thomas Edison? Walt Disney? Nope, Jesus.
