“To Infinity and Beyond”

I didn’t realize until last night how much Steve Jobs changed my world:

  • He added color (orange desktop computer, red netbook).
  • He added usability (point-and-click operating system versus the old DOS).
  • He made music truly portable (mp3 player, streaming capabilities).
  • He changed the way we connect (smartphone).

My only Apple product is an iPod nano, and yet Steve Jobs’ impact is everywhere. Oh, and his tenure at Pixar produced the little movie clip above.

The world needs more disruptive innovators.

To infinity and beyond, Steve Jobs.
