It’s a rather impressive example of just how much Steve and Apple have impacted not only the world, but individuals. Here’s a few excerpts:
Thank you Steve for your innovation and persistence over the years, you will go down in history as one of the modern world’s true genius in design and marketing. I am truly saddened today to hear the inevitable news of his passing, may he rest in peace he certainly deserves it and my heart felt condolences to his family and friends.
Steve, you will never be forgotten. You have changed my life, and the life of many others. You changed the way we think by thinking different yourself. You have changed the universe and will never be forgotten. -An Apple, and Steve Jobs fan.
You were one of the most creative people to ever live. You made machines so beautiful and useful. God bless your family.
