Jobs was one of the greats.

I don't know if the tech industry will ever see days such as those when the likes of Jobs, Wozniak and Gates were pretty much carving out computing as we know it.

Whatever you think of Apple, you have to admire Jobs. He actually had vision, something pretty rare in today's CEO's. You just know that when you sat in his meetings, you wouldn't have been playing buzzword bingo.

RIP Steve.
