It's very strange reading something like this for me, because he was only two years older than my dad, whose name is also Steve, although, thank God, he isn't sick or anything. Poor Steve and his family. It's always a little bit freaky when something like this happens. Plus, he was really a genius. a-hard-days-night-george-4(For some reason this looked like George blowing kisses, so I thought it might be appropriate. Kisses for Steve, guys.) 

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that." "What happens to them?" insisted Milo. "Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars." –The Phantom Tollbooth

I like Apple's products a little less as the years go by (I ditched my iPhone and iPod for better products, hate the walled garden they try to lock people into, but I still love my iMac), and by various accounts he could be a pretty unpleasant guy if the mood took him. But he had a brilliant, far-reaching vision for how technology should work, elevating design to the forefront, and was a marketing genius. The world's a little less colourful without him. And the Stanford speech he gave in 2005 remains one of the most inspiring things I've ever read.
