STEVE JOBS

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do," said Apple visionary Steve Jobs, who revolutionized technology and entertainment globally with innovations from the iMac to the iPod. After losing his seven-year battle with pancreatic cancer on Oct. 5 at 56, tributes for the charismatic entrepreneur poured in from around the world. "Steve was among the greatest of American innovators," said President Obama. "Brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."
