Things at Apple are going to be a little different without Steve Jobs at the helm. I have no doubt that Tim Cook will step up to do a fantastic job, but there are many reasons why we’ll never forget Steve’s time at Apple.

In the beginning, Steve created the Apple I. He and Wozniak were tinkering with the first Apple computer in a garage a long time before it actually launched in 1976, but with the Apple I came the launch of Apple Computer and it the first machine we got our hands on.
