Steve Jobs passing has touched many of us in a personal way. We use the computers, phones and entertainment devices he helped create every day. The Internet has been full of outpourings of public grief and tributes in his memory since the news came last night that he had passed away.
But my kids don’t know who Steve Jobs is. They use my iPhone to play games, they use iTunes to listen to music, they watch movies and write letters and Skype with their grandparents on my Macbook. His work is a part of their lives every day. Whenever a laptop appears in their drawings, it has an Apple logo clumsily sketched on the back. To them, computers are Macs, phones are iPhones, it’s just that simple.
To help them understand how Steve Jobs touched not only peoples’ lives but also their hearts, I’ve rounded up some of the most heartwarming tribute images I could find in his honor.
