Steve Jobs Tributes

herojobs.png

Last night, the co-founder of Apple and former chief executive Steve Jobs passed away. You may know him better as the guy who pretty much changed the way you use technology. He also co-founded Pixar, meaning you also have him to thank for pretty much every animated film worth seeing in the past 16 years.

His death has had an understandably profound effect on the digital world, yes even to people who still call themselves PCs, and we've assembled some of the finest tributes.

A collage of Apple products make up Steve Jobs...

And the most recent one!




"Steve Jobs was the greatest inventor since Thomas Edison. He put the world at our fingertips."
