He changed the world in a big way. How many people can say that?

My wife and I were at a Best Buy last week buying a calculator for one of our Godchildren. We passed by a table of Apple Products at this store and talked about how apple evolves again and again. I'm a windows person, but you got to hand it to Steve Jobs for being an incredible visionary.

Technically Arab American

and Yes he was THE most influential man to have lived during my lifetime. He literally turned an entire industry upside down. It came as a shock to see him go even though we all knew he wasnt doing well.

RIP Steve

A man ahead of his time, a genius and a tremendous orator.

Although the idea of GUI and mice was created by Xerox...but he did pay for it

Is it only in America that people refer to themselves as being from another country or a hybrid? Does a Pakistani British citizen refer to themselves as a Pakistani-Brit or Pakistani?

A guy who was good with technology. Sad to lose him. Seemed like a nice guy.

Good with technology? Jobs was a lot more than that.

OK, wrong word. He was a superior genius that I cannot fathom how many things he did or how many people he helped.

I just thought that your choice of words were a bit odd. He was quite an innovator, businessman and visionary. I do not know him well enough to say if he was a good guy or not and did seem like it but your post seemed a bit blase.

I can accept that criticism. You are correct.
