Visionary entrepreneur Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple, Inc., passed away on October 5 due to complications from pancreatic cancer. Jobs had his fingerprints on an astounding range of consumer products so ingrained in our daily lives it is difficult to imagine life without them— Mac computers, iPods, iPhones, iPads, iTunes, apps and many more. The catchy advertising slogans—” Think different;” “The best keeps getting better;””This changes everything. Again”—were emblematic of Apple’s optimism toward the future. Fans gathered at spontaneous shrines at Apple retail stores from Moscow to the Philippines to New York, sticking Post-It notes with their remembrances on the stores’ glass walls.
