Rest in peace, Steve.
You may think it is nuts for a hockey blog to have anything to do with the death of Steve Jobs. If that is the case, skip ahead and move on. However, without Steve Jobs, you may not be reading this today. While I own nothing from his company, the man changed the world. The personal computer was not, in fact, the idea of Bill Gates. The personal computer... that thing you are staring at right now... was the brain child of Steve Jobs.
Unless you are 40+ years old or better, you cannot imagine a world without the PC. Later came the gadgets, the iMac, the iPhone, the iPod. The revolution came with the PC, a device that would eventually give everyone the chance to learn anything they wanted in a matter of seconds, all from the palm of their hand.
The world lost an amazing man yesterday. He may not have had anything to do with hockey, but he changed your life, and mine, for the better. Take a moment today to ponder what your life would be like without the work of Steve Jobs.
Rest in peace, Steve. Rest assured you will never truly be gone from the Earth.
