RIP Steve Jobs

Very much not a fan. I didn't really like his products, which often seemed to value form over function, and by all accounts he's someone I wouldn't have wanted to work for/with.

But clearly lots of people disagreed with me, and he's had an enormous effect on computing. There are plenty good things have come out of products that over all I wasn't very keen on. And way back in the early 1990s, I thought it would be cool to work on a NeXT. So long Steve Jobs, and sympathy to his family, friends and fans.
