Steve Jobs impacted more people on this planet than has anyone else in the last century. He empowered people with the ability to communicate better, to understand more and to enjoy more.

His vision became and remains a beacon for the rest of us.

Thank you Steve.

It is sad...almost appalling, that only two readers here online paid homage to probably one of the most important human beings this planet has had the luck to call one of its "humans".

He will not miss those about whom I speak of, either.

I hope his children build a monument on the lot he owned that will irritate those who prevented him from living comfortably in the house he hoped to build and which you all fought against.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
