Most of you have probably already heard this news, but I think it’s worth mentioning in the context of this class. Steve Jobs has been very influential in making computers accessible to non-technical users, improving user interface, and bringing computing to mobile devices. He passed away Wednesday morning at age 56. Though I’m not personally an Apple user, I deeply respect Steve Jobs for the tremendous impacts he has made on the evolution of personal computing. Rest in peace.

RIP Steve Jobs: 1955-2011
