There are moments that are really so hard that no words can come close to describe them.

Have been a science, puzzle and technology addict since I remember and had used Apple products just to know "what's up" about them since 1987 did not make me switch to its products, but earned a huge respect for all meticulous care and overall finished sense they have.

Besides upping the bar on computer industry, Steve also was part of Pixar revolution and come to put a little sanity back on the record industry. So much for a single man to accomplish that, from time to time, I got asking myself if there were some clones of him running along.

Wish that are a God waiting for him and when he asks why so early, he gets: "The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Steve. Look at you: you're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize!"

Rest in a very deserved peace Steve, the sense of your presence will be deeply real to all of us that have the privilege to live on the same epoch you did.
