Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011.

As I’m sure most readers already know.  Apple’s head honcho Steve Jobs has passed away.  Twitter was INSTANTLY a-twit with the news, and people all over the world are beginning to realize that the man responsible for a majority of the modernized technology they use, has passed.  Jobs has consistently managed to capture the world’s attention with his stage events. On Wednesday evening, the world took to the Web to express their condolences about the news of his death.  Facebook news feeds filled with links and anecdotes about the impact that technology — and more specifically, Apple’s technology — had on their lives. Messages on Twitter and the site’s list of trending topics quickly became dominated by phrases such as “RIP Steve Jobs,” “#ThankYouSteve” and “iHeaven.”  The flood of messages slowed Twitter to a crawl at times or produced error messages saying the site was over capacity.  On those sites, many people posted and quoted from Jobs’ heartfelt commencement address to Stanford University in 2005, in which he first provided details about his health problems. Many pointed out how promotions for Apple’s products on the company’s website were replaced with a black-and-white photo of Jobs.
