Perhaps it is because Steve was not some cutthroat billionaire, a rich man’s son who couldn’t see an original idea if it snuck its way onto his manicured garden. He was a creative man as well as a technical-minded one. He revolutionized the way we think of computers. Heck, who would’ve thought it would be fun to use a computer? Most people would say never. But Steve Jobs reworked the way computers look and act, and forever changed the way we use them.
He also funded a start-up called Pixar. Remember them?
Among machines, Steve Jobs was a human being. Let his legacy be the relationship we have with our beloved (and sometimes hated) computers, be they the size of a wristwatch or the shape of a rocketship. He made his statement on the human condition, on how we behave and what we want. Really, what more can any of us hope to achieve?
