Steve Jobs has died...

Recommended Posts

RIP Steve.

He looked sick, but I never thought it would happen so fast. The guy's life should be a model for all future entrepreneurs.

I think that without Steve Jobs we would not have the popular interest in portable audio and headphones that we have today.

Every death is a loss. RIP.

I didn't see it coming so very soon. He was such a huge figurehead, the image I have of the whole tech world feels a little dimmer knowing he is gone. Tim is a great and I mean that honestly, but no one I can think of holds a true candle to the influence that Steve has had on the tech push of the last two decades in my mind.

Very sad news. I can only think of two other times in my life when someone I never knew died which saddened me like this: John Lennon and Jerry Garcia.

I was lucky enough to have spent time with Steve on two occasions. While I have sat down with numerous world leaders, business icons and celebrities, Mr. Jobs has always stood out as my favorite celebrity meeting.

Why does this not surprise me.

I'm almost done with a contrary point of view article to Guttenbergs recent slamming of the stock iPod ear-bud.

I got curious, so did a bunch of measurements of a variety of current ear-buds.

The stock iPod ear-bud easily bested every other bud but the best Sennheiser.

They're ear-buds, so thay still basically sound pretty bad, but they were a very. good. ear-bud.

I had two samples from recent purchases, and they measured virtually identical.

I've talked to one of their lead engineers before, and was impressed by what they were doing.

Those guys were passionate, and spending MO-NAY making the very best throw-away headphone in the world.

That doesn't happen when visionless MBAs run a company.

Great job, Steve!

Rest in Peace.
