RIP Steve Jobs

I'm really sad now because Steve Jobs died. For people who don't know, he was the CEO of Apple. He was such an amazing guy and did so many great things. I love that he worked so hard to improve accessibility for his Apple products. If it weren't for him, I would not have an Iphone or laptop that is so accessible. All his work has made things easier for me and many other visually impaired people. Most people don't understand the extent of the work that he did for this to happen, and I appreciate it so much!

It is sad, he has been battling cancer for a while. Apple continues to follow in the manner he started of centering around the user experience. This includes accessibility. I am with you! RIP Steve!
