News: Steve Jobs and His Legacy

Steve Jobs and His Legacy

I was working on a different Google+ Insider's Guide post when suddenly, my Google+ stream started filling up with news of Steve Jobs' death. Since that moment, many people in the tech industry have paused to reflect on the legacy that Steve Jobs left behind, and talk about what his vision meant for the rest of the industry, and for them personally. There's no tech sector that was untouched by Steve Jobs' influence, and that includes Google.

+Larry Page wrote briefly about the impact that Steve Jobs had on him as he became the CEO of Google: "His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.
