Bill Gates & Sergey Brin Offer Their Condolences On The Passing of Steve Jobs

Bill Gates offers his condolences:

I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.

Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Bill Gates & Sergey Brin Offer Their Condolences On The Passing of Steve Jobs

Google’s Sergey Brin just posted his statement on Google+:

From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met.

On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.

Steve Jobs will be truly missed by all of us at Cult of Mac. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and everyone at Apple, Inc. Rest in peace.

    This shows us that, regardless of competition and so-called “savage corporate capitalism”, people are just people. They have feelings, idols, and ideals. And this is beautiful. We’re all unique – that’s what make life so exciting.
