Opinion: Steve Jobs

Love him or hate him, there can be no denying that Steve Jobs, changed the way we live. A visionary in a brave new world that ironically was short of visionaries, his creations are legendary. Perhaps however, Jobs left us a greater legacy - showing us that dreams can become visions and visions can become reality.

Steve Jobs had his critics, his detractors - often justifiably. And of course, he had the tall poppy loppers snapping at his every word and move, those who belittle anyone who has the audacity to make money out of hard bloody work and skill.

Today is not a day to condemn or criticize Jobs or Apple, we have been there, done that and will do it again no doubt. It is a day to remember the changes he made in the way we access entertainment, the way we spend our ever eroding leisure time.

Steve Jobs created something far bigger than Steve Jobs.
