RIP Steve Jobs

Today, the world has lost the greatest visionary it will ever see. Steve Jobs has passed away at the age of fifty-six. Even if you’ve never owned an Apple product, whatever device you’re using to read this right now was indirectly a product of the vision of Steve Jobs. Apple was the first to do such things as use a graphical user interface, or to do away with things like floppy drives. While the world will never be the same without him, I hope that Apple will continue to remember the ideals of Steve Jobs, and continue to make products that feature a perfect blend of form and function.

People think it’s this veneer — that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

– Steve Jobs, November 30, 2003

I know everyone else has already posted this same video, but there’s a reason for that. Amazingly inspiring speech.

    Very little congestion? What do I know, I’ve spent just three weeks in Germany, and all the driving around to see things was not exactly life as usual, but “Stau” is one of the words you’ll learn real quick. That’s one thing just like America, traffic jams. And don’t many of the countries in Europe adjust the fines for traffic offenses to your income, so even the wealthy will find the fine meaningful? Doesn’t that count as enforcement?
