I just burst into tears... I cried for nearly 10 mins... I don't know what came over me, I just felt so sad.
It's just amazing that someone I have never met has made such a huge impact on my life.
I now feel a lot better, but I still can't believe he's gone.

I found out about Steve's death through a Macworld email, which appeared as a notification on my iPhone 4's lock screen. Funny story, I got my phone out of my pocket to check the time, put it back in, did a double take and pulled it back out again.

A few weeks ago, I visited Jobs for the last time in his Palo Alto, Calif., home. He had moved to a downstairs bedroom because he was too weak to go up and down stairs. He was curled up in some pain, but his mind was still sharp and his humor vibrant. We talked about his childhood, and he gave me some pictures of his father and family to use in my biography. As a writer, I was used to being detached, but I was hit by a wave of sadness as I tried to say goodbye. In order to mask my emotion, I asked the one question that was still puzzling me: Why had he been so eager, during close to 50 interviews and conversations over the course of two years, to open up so much for a book when he was usually so private? âI wanted my kids to know me,â he said. âI wasnât always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.â

He may have gone to that iCloud in the sky but his legacy will live on in history and in the hearts and minds of those of us who were privileged to have witnessed the life of one of the great men of all time.
