Can you think of anybody who has made more of a direct impact on your life than Steve Jobs?

He of the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad?

Anybody? No? Dang.

How could you not admire his work?

When Blawgletter read of the death of Mr. Jobs this week, we felt sad. That surprised us. It really did. We never met him, but just the same we wished he hadn't had to go.

We thought about the help he'd given us (and a great many others). Wow. And we also thought how much we will miss him.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. Rest in peace.
