The Jobs tributes show no sign of slowing down. Some Minecraft players have been getting busy building their own Jobs tributes out of blocky Minecraft stuff. The one above, by KickAssTechnology, is particularly nicely done and ends on a poignant tone.
There’s more where that came from.
Here’s a great tale from former Apple employee John Lilly, describing what it was really like to work under Steve Jobs back in the late 1990s.
Tributes to Steve Jobs are coming in from everywhere. Here’s a handful of the ones we’ve noticed this morning…
Google CEO Larry Page:
I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts and Google’s are with his family and the whole Apple family.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
More than any other, this is the Steve Jobs quote I keep seeing all over Twitter and the rest of the internet today.
So you want to be Steve Jobs? Sure, you can be – if you use FaceTracker like this guy.
When reader Liam Dennis updated his Twitter for iPhone app yesterday, it told him that Steve Jobs had registered a Twitter account. He explains:
So has Jobs finally registered a Twitter account?
Steve Jobs is taking a medical leave of absence and handing day-to-day control of Apple over to Tim Cook.
Jobs sent the following message to staff this morning:
At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.
I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.
