In honor of Steve Jobs, let's watch this video from his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address:

 I think of Steve job as a rebel. I am no Apple fan but I think he was a person with guts. He had the guts to do what he wanted, how he wanted and be damn good at it. When Ipod first came out it wasn't a big hit but he kept it the way he wanted it to be. Same things can be said about his other products.

Fact: As of October 9, 2011, Jobs is listed as either primary inventor or co-inventor in 342 US patents or patent applications related to a range of technologies from actual computer and portable devices to user interfaces (including touch-based), speakers, keyboards, power adapters, staircases, clasps, sleeves, lanyards and packages.

Steve Jobs you will be remembered.
