Les destinées de Steve Jobs et de Stephen Wozniak ont été intimement liés depuis leur rencontre au Homebrew Computer Club, où ils se retrouvaient régulièrement avec d'autres bidouilleurs, aux premières heures de l'histoire de l'informatique.

"We also got robbed at gunpoint once. This was in a pizza parlor in Sunnyvale. Two guys looked like they might be interested [in buying a blue box]. We took them back to a pay phone and made a call to Chicago for them.
While other publications scrambled to put out ink-on-paper editions on Steve Jobs, Wired turned to the e-book format for a commemorative product. Staffers worked late into the night Friday to get "Steve Jobs, Revolutionary" in the Wired container on the Apple iPad Saturday. The e-book is set to go live on the Amazon Kindle Monday afternoon.

This little-known video was put together by Apple employees to celebrate Steve Jobs’ 30th birthday back on February 24th 1985. Given the tragic news this week , the video and its collection of memories is all the more poignant. As Harry McCracken notes , the film contains a number of photos and events that are not widely known outside Job’s closest circles and Apple employees, portraying a playful side to his character that few saw. The song playing in the video is ‘My Back Pages’ by Bob Dylan, one of his idols and favourite musicians.
President Barack Obama: The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.
(Hybrid Theory writing session, Apple Computer, circa 1998) My family’s first computer was an Apple (a IIe, I think). I remember learning to type on it, playing a game that calculated your words-per-minute.
If you’re like me, when you heard about the passing of Steve Jobs, you had a panicked moment where all you could think about was how much more Mr. Jobs had to give the world, and how sad you were to be robbed of the fruits of those years. My love for Mr.

Wednesday, 24 August 2011 Reading around the web an hour ago, looking for confirmation of the then-minutes-old news that Steve Jobs had resigned as CEO, I repeatedly encountered and bridled each time at use of the adjective “shocking” to describe the announcement. But my initial resentment was unwarranted. This is not out of nowhere, it’s not even unexpected.
By Jennifer Valentino-DeVries This post originally ran on Aug. 24, after Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple. It has been updated to reflect the news of his death.

Although he will be remembered for ushering in fundamental changes in the way people interact with technology, he has also been known for his ability to turn a phrase – and a knack for taking complicated ideas and making them easy to understand. Below, a compendium of some of the best Steve Jobs quotes.
Hier quand j'ai appris la mort de Steve Jobs j'ai été envahi de tristesse et de nostalgie. Depuis toujours, il a été pour moi un modèle, un gourou, l'exemple même de ces entrepreneurs qui veulent (et parfois réussissent à) changer le monde.
