Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

I got my first "real" job because I knew how to use a Mac.

Every bit of Parent Hacks was created on a Mac.

I owe my newfound ability to stay organized, in part, to my iPhone.

My children and I have shared hours of fun watching Pixar movies.

For this and so much more, thank you, Steve Jobs.

I wrote Parenting Lessons From Steve Jobs after he stepped down from Apple. In it, I shared some of the insights I gained after watching this speech. I hope you get as much out of his talk as I did.

That Stanford Commencement Speech should be a 'must listen' for every college graduate. I wonder how many blogs out there were created on a mac? :)

TheMotherhood.com, Emily and I are all 100% Mac, too. He changed the world, and our world also. Wonderful post, Asha and a great way to pay tribute - Thank you, Steve Jobs!

Thanks for posting this amazing speech. What an incredible life and legacy he leaves behind. May we all continue to be inspired....
