Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Wednesday we lost an Industry leader and pioneer. I fear that he may not see a pioneer of his caliber again.  From the early days of computers he defined the industry. Even with his departure he continued to be a pioneer in what ever he did. Upon his return to apple he continued to be a pioneer and boldly lead Apple from the verge of bankruptcy to a company with the a market cap greater than Exxon. He redefined music with i-tunes and the iPod. He defined what the smart phone is with the introduction of the iPhone. And created a new market with the iPad.

If the measure of a mans worth is all the lives he has touched and his deeds, then Steve Jobs was a great man. May his legacy live on.

My condolences go out to his wife, children, sisters and employees of Apple.

I graduated from Southern Poly in Marietta in 1989 with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. I worked repairing industrial electronics and control systems for over 15 years. Started a document scanning company with a friend in 2006. With the continuing struggling economy my involvement ended with the closing of the Marietta location in 2013. Now I am back to repairing industrial drives.
