Steve Jobs RIP

Steve Jobs died on October 5th from pancreatic cancer.

The world has truly been moved by this news (check out Twitter for #thankyousteve and #iSad) but few men have left a legacy as impressive as Steve.

Steve was a true visionary. He put a computer in every home, revolutionised how we purchase music, made the touchscreen a mainstream necessity and replaced laptops with tablets. Steven Spielberg summarised the man brilliantly: "Steve Jobs was the greatest inventor since Thomas Edison. He put the world at our fingertips."

Personally, I will always remember Steve for co-founding Pixar: the most consistently successful and innovative animation studio of all time. Without Steve, we wouldn't have Woody, Buzz, Nemo, WALL.E and the rest of the gang.

He may have given the world iMacs and iPods and iPhone and iPads (I have none of the above) but he gave me some of my favourite films of all time.

Thank you Steve.
