We discovered today that Steve Jobs, one of the most iconic characters in our industry died today. This is a really sad event that has resonated across the world, on my own Facebook feed I notice that even those of my friends who aren’t “techies” still recognise him and what he stood for.
At Adobe we’re all very saddened to hear this terrible news. Only yesterday we saw Tim Cook, Apple’s new CEO, deliver the next iPhone and continue the legacy that Steve started and under what we know now to be horrendous difficulty. This evening Serge, Michael, Piotr and myself were talking about how difficult it would be to present that keynote knowing that their friend was that ill. Our hats are off to them all. Their launch of the iPhone 4s was as ever appropriate, “4Steve”.
Here is my favourite Steve Jobs performance.
