Steve Jobs: 1955 – 2011

October 6, 2011 12 comments

With the sad passing of Steve Jobs yesterday, Autism Speaks wanted to take a moment to recognize the enormous contributions he and Apple made to the autism community. Jobs brought touch screen computing to the masses, and as a result of the iPad and the many other tablet and touch screen devices that followed, he helped many affected by autism achieve a degree of independence that would simply have been impossible without that technology. He was a one of a kind entrepreneur, inventor and innovator, and we felt it was appropriate that we take a moment to recognize his extraordinary life, and to thank him for the contributions to the autism community. RIP Steve, and thanks.

Here are two blog posts from the autism community that celebrate Steve Jobs:
