A history changer to be sure, the impact of Steve Jobs is phenomenal and yet the 50th anniv couple upstairs sleeping now have no idea who he is, nor really anything he has done.
With so much information out there, we have one person, a major inventor who affected the course of the world, and many do not know him. (vs a past politician, inventor or celebrity that they would know)

They had never heard of Apple? Seems hard to believe. The man literally changed the way people look at really major things. Gui interface, ipod, iphone and now ipad. Pretty major changes to pretty everyday items at the time.

Not sure if I agree with that. Edison's inventions affected EVERYONE. All over the world. Everywhere.
Same with Alexander Graham Bell. Same with Henry Ford.
I don't own an Apple product. I know plenty of people who don't. But, I would agree that he was a visionary. In his field. And he pushed others within the same field to be better and go farther with their own products. But, I would draw the line that he changed the lives of everyone, everywhere, though, with his product line. Just my 2 cents.
Sad that he died, but everyone does.

You are one who doesn't realize the impact of what this man did then.
He had an influence in the creation of THE PC. Look at that through a world view, military, etc.

Do you own a personal computing device of any kind? Jobs is credited with making the computer personal. You don't have to own an Apple product to own a knock off of an Apple product or realize that company forced other HUGE companies to get personal about their products.

I guess I don't then. Maybe I am thinking too narrowly... or it's just a bad day and I'll see more clearly tomorrow :)

I hate that feeling... no pun intended. But that "I can't feel half of my face" feeling gives me the willies...
