Jobs tributes light up iPhones, Twitter worldwide
Competitors who watched as Apple’s sales _ and its stock price _ took off over the past decade posted messages of admiration:
“Steve Jobs was a great visionary and a respected competitor,” said Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, co-CEOs of Blackberry-maker Research in Motion.
“Today the world lost a visionary leader, the technology industry lost an iconic legend and I lost a friend and fellow founder,” said Dell Inc. founder and CEO Michael Dell.
At an Apple Store in New York City, where a small collection of flowers and candles had started to form, Jacqueline Thuener-Rego, said Jobs has helped change how people think about their relationship with technology.
“You don’t think of it as technology, you think of it as memories, experiences,” the 28-year-old actress from Brooklyn said. “It’s as integrated into your life as a cup of coffee. The technology has become the human experience.”
