That said I did not like the man, but no one can deny the huge influence he has had on technology and or entire world.
True, but name a Pixar film before he bought it. Jobs didn't invent very much, he got behind things and people he saw genius in.

I never liked apple, but I would not hold that against a man who stood behind what he believed in.
At the end that is what matters.

Too young, its very sad.

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, especially at this time but that's revisionist history at its best. Steve Jobs almost ran Pixar into the ground.

John Lasseter is the one who pulled it out of the fire with his early work and close relationship with Disney.

Default RIP Steve Jobs

I never was a big Apple guy, but always found his life story interesting.
