Steve Jobs was one of the most important visionary minds of our time. He was the co-founder and CEO of Apple and the largest shareholder in Pixar. So many of his ideas have permanently shaped the world as we know it. Jobs died on October 5, 2011. A few days later governor of California proclaimed October 16th to be Steve Jobs Day. It is the date that Apple held a memorial service for him. On this day we celebrate the life of a man whose achievements are too numerous to count and all the modern conveniences we have to thank him for.
