President Obama on the Passing of Steve Jobs: "He changed the way each of us sees the world."

Following the loss of visionary Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, President Obama released this statement:

Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

By building one of the planets most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.

The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steves success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steves wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.

3. Fantastic statement by the president.
"The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steves success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."

^That I found the most touching part. The world has lost one of the greatest visionaries and thinkers in world history and his legacy will live on forever. It's astounding to think how much the world has changed ever since of the debut of Apple's first personal computer.

RIP Steve. You will be missed.
