Steve Jobs is definitely a person who is hard to overestimate and whose heritage will live on for years. The industries Mr. Jobs helped to create will improve the quality of life for a long time and there will be a lot of beneficiaries of his passion towards dazzling technology and rapid innovation.

Even though Apple will follow the trajectory defined by Mr. Jobs for years and, hopefully, the company over time will become even more innovative - perhaps, thanks to ideas once thought about by its co-founder - without Steve Jobs it will never be the same.
