A World of Sad Macs with News of Jobs' Passing
When Steve Jobs announced his retirement a few weeks ago
, many an industry pundit treated the occasion with tributes as though the man had already passed on. Business news on television droned on for days on the impact of his retirement to the financial community. The story was a big deal. So, yesterday's sad news of his quiet passing shouldn't have come as a surprise, even though it did for me as well as many of my colleagues here at 1105 Media.
Jobs' passing was marked on the Apple.com site with a simple photo and date, and his death has dominated news media and social media for the last 24 hours. Our own, very simple and factual statement which includes links to statements made by industry giants is here, but ones I also recommend you check out are here, here, here and here. (If you have any links you'd like to share, please add them to this post; I do ask that you refrain from adding your condolences to his family or friends here, because, frankly, they won't be read by them on our site.) I also recommend you see the TV melodrama, Pirates of Silicon Valley, if you get a chance.
We at MCPmag.com and the rest of the 1105 Media family extend our heartfelt condolences to Jobs' family, friends and colleagues.
