One of the few times I've felt personally moved at the death of a celebrity. The other was Douglas Adams.

I also loved the Dirk Gently series and would keep on hand copies of 'Last Chance to See' on hand to give to friends. I wished that all environmental writers could manage the humour and pathos that Adams captured with that book.

I am not a Mac user but use idevices.  Technology affiliations aside his contribution to home computing is the reason we sit here having a chat so far from each other so easily.  A very sad loss and a visionary and passionate human being.

We are a no Apple zone house but that takes nothing away from Steve Jobs himself, was an amazing guy.

Some Steve Jobs words:

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.

"Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true."

I've been using Apple products since 1980 when the school I was teaching at decided on a Apple II. It had a whopping 4K or RAM and programs loaded via a cassette tape. I saw it thru its Apple IIe iteration before the Amiga 500 started to dominate. Then the Macintosh came out with the GUI (or WIMP). The overall functionality of that concept (Windows, Icons, Mouse, Pull-down menus) hasn't really changed that much in 25 years.
Then Jobs saw out  getting the boot from Apple and got involved in Pixar and then buying up a company that was working in Unix-style OS allowed him to march back into Apple and not only rescue it but move it forward in leaps and bounds to once again become an IT leader.

Steve Jobs will be recognised as one of the greatest entrepreneurs of the C20th and C21st. There isn't any better indication of his influence than finding the first product released after his departure isn't the iPhone 5 but the iPhone 4S.
