I just saw that too. He was an amazing man. They were showing and interview from 20 years ago with him and he was talking about things we have now. He must have had an amazing vision board!

Steve Jobs in his 2005 speech was a great and something to think about everyday of our lives. He said ď Donít let the noise of otherís opinions drown your own inner voice." A legend has passed but proudly left a huge impact and a great contribution to our world.

"Your time is limited; so don't waste it living someone else's life". ~ Steve Jobs

RIP 2/24/1955 - 10/05/2011

Suz, I was just about to post that timeline, too!!

I'm sad about this, too. Steve was iconic and representative of our times.
It's crazy too, how just a few weeks ago he was here and releasing press statments asking for privacy. Cancer is terrible once it gets ahold of you and sucks your life away!!

The world will miss his vision. He has certainly touched millions of people's lives.
