OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.

Steve Jobs: 1955 - 2011

The New York Times has published Mona Simpson's eulogy for her brother, Steve Jobs.

None of us knows for certain how long we’ll be here. On Steve’s better days, even in the last year, he embarked upon projects and elicited promises from his friends at Apple to finish them. Some boat builders in the Netherlands have a gorgeous stainless steel hull ready to be covered with the finishing wood. His three daughters remain unmarried, his two youngest still girls, and he’d wanted to walk them down the aisle as he’d walked me the day of my wedding.

We all — in the end — die in medias res. In the middle of a story. Of many stories.

This is the saddest thing to read...especially after just finishing the book this morning. Which the book is such an excellent read, I cannot recommend it enough.

It was a beautiful eulogy that made me cry. He was a great man. She was honest. She gave us a deeper look inside than I could have ever hoped for. I wish that I could thank her. RIP STEVE!

It must be noted here that the title of this article "Oh Wow, oh wow, oh wow" were said to be the last words of Steve Jobs according to his biological sister.
With that said, I would like my final words to me "Come closer!!! The 100 Million Dollars is in the ..... bleeaaaaaa.............. "

We will miss you Steven Jobs. You have changed the world - we all hope we change the world in our own way.... you succeeded.

People bitch & complain , no matter what.
I know for a fact Rene wouldnt mean this in any shape , way or form as disrespect to Steve, more like the opposite. Give him a break.

Thanks , I have recently been searching for information about this subject for a while and yours is the best I have found out so far. However, what about the bottom line? Are you positive about the source?|What i don't understood is in fact how you are no longer really a lot more well-preferred than you might be right now. You're very intelligent.
