Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

The death of Apple co-founder and creative guru Steve Jobs has elicited tributes the world over. Bloomberg wraps up a bunch of them here. For some perspective on how Jobs pursued his dreams, check out his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University — as he said, "no big deal, just three stories."

Over at CNet, meanwhile, Josh Lowensohn takes a look at how the company might change  as new executives fill in, including in the crucial design dominion it has come to dominate.

Perhaps of the most interest in the post-Jobs era though is Jonathan Ive, Apple's senior vice president of industrial design. Jobs is credited with pulling Ive from designing prototypes of products that were going nowhere and bringing him into the inner circle of the company's design efforts. The two men were also said to have had a mutual admiration and taste for design that's driven the company to create some of its most iconic products. With Jobs no longer a part of that creative process, does Ive stay or strike out on his own?
