News this week of Steve Jobs’ heath problems and liver transplant has put a focus on his importance to the history of technological innovation at the end of the 20th century. Starting with the first pre-assembled Apple computers that Jobs marketed with Steve Wozniak, it can really be said that Jobs played a major role in making digital technology part of everyday life.
The iPod has revolutionized how we listen to music, and Pixar Animation Studios has shown that computer animation can be used to make amazing feature length films. Jobs had a hand in each of these innovations. Techies around the world are wishing Jobs the best and hoping he’ll soon be bringing us the next big thing.
