Sad news about Steve Jobs. I wrote last month that his iPhone battery was permanently disconnected from his USB drive.
One of those things about twitter is that news travels faster there than on normal news media. I was the first to know about it among my friends, but only because I have the social graces of an ape and have a compulsion to check a twitter feed while out with real life friends. I tweeted out these among many additional RTs.
I saw one tweet that equated Steve Jobs to Tony Stark.
Nope, Jobs was more like a Howard Stark. Laying the foundation for those that follow in his footsteps. Jobs himself was much more akin to Gutenberg, the creator of movable type, which brought education and a leap forward in communication to the masses. He has created a generation of people more able to communicate with one another than ever before imagined.
And all this coming from a windows guy.
