Steve Jobs, one of the most inspirational leaders of my generation has died at the age of 56. The one that always reached for the Next Great Thing and inspired us all to Think Different will never be forgotten. Patently Apple will not be reporting as usual tomorrow out of respect for Steve. Our comment system will remain open without moderation for the first time in our history in order to allow anyone in or outside of the community to pay their respect until Friday morning. And one more thing: I've added Apple's Think Different Campaign video as narrated by the Great One himself. It's the first time that I've ever heard this version of it before and it'll always be the way I remember Steve: As one of the Crazy Ones who thought they could change the world, and did. Updated
Think Different: Narrated by Steve Jobs
Update: When we first ran this video on October 5, 2011, the YouTube counter rang in at just slightly over 500 hits. As of November 5, 2011, over 1.6 million people have viewed this version of the Think Different ad.
And One More Thing ...
Update #1 - Oct 7, 2011: Above is a photo from Diana Walker for Time. This is one of twelve photos of Steve Jobs that were presented this morning that you should check out. This is a photo of Steve Jobs and his wife Laurene taken at their home in Palo Alto California in 1997.
Update #2 - Oct 9, 2011: Below is a photo of NYC Cabs with a Tribute to Steve Jobs on them. Here's another view of a cab in front of an Apple Store with this same tribute. Show Media appears to have been behind this tribute and our hats are off to them for it. Thanks to Philip Orr for that link.
