RIP Steve Jobs
Shock wasn't allowed as we all knew he was sick...though sad definitely as I don't know why but I expected him to pull through despite all signs to the contrary.
My grandfather had passed due to a similar cancer earlier last year and part of me was even upset Steve ignored the early warnings due to psuedo-scientific beliefs because I wish my grandfather had that chance.
So I was sad and even angry...and I really hope innovation doesn't stall because he's out of the picture.
Hopefully a silver lining is here and he gave the industry the persistent kick in the ass it needs to get shit done properly.
I'm a firm believer that tech would've been here regardless...but I do also believe that without Apple (Steve Jobs') influence it'd be a present that is uglier, less functional, and less consumer friendly.
