Mr. Jobs. Era span: 02/24/1955 - 10/05/2011

The best tributes - pictures & quotes - I've seen so far on the web. I'm sure Steve would've liked several of these, as they resemble what he lived & died for: A minimalist approach to everything.

I've never met you, and I never will. But you've created one hell of a revolution and you'll be an inspiration for centuries to come.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Jobs.

He had a level of perception about feelings and emotions that was far beyond anything I’ve met in my entire life.

I’ll miss talking to him. - Eric Schmidt

Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
