  • Steve Jobs, the man, the visionary, has left us.

    As a man who loves technology and who wishes he had acomplished 10% of what Steve acomplished in his life, I feel like I have lost a brother today. He changed our lives for the better and I bet he is already thinking of new things to change Heaven. Good bye brother, rest in peace.

    R.I.P. Steve Jobs. I didn't get to meet this man personally, and I don't know whether he was morally a good person or not, but I have to celebrate his vision and accomplishments in technology. When somebody like him dies, it makes you think about the limits of human ingenuity and imagination. Descanse en Paz Mr. Jobs, may God receive you in His glory.
