Steve Jobs: Tributes and memories

Inevitably there are hundreds of tributes to Steve Jobs kicking around  this week. Here are some that caught my eye.
The Sydney Morning Herald uses an iPad frame

There have been lots of adaptations of the logo. This is one of the best.

Sums up one of the issues nicely

Here is PA's interactive timeline on Apple's history from its inception in 1984 to this week - with a close look at what happened to its share prices.
I can't claim to be a Mac User since 1984. I first dabbled in 1988 when I used to stand in for Mike Brough, the graphic artist at The Northern Echo, on his day off to change the weather map and football chalk boards. This video on how it all started brings it all back. And if you never tire of hearing the Jobs' philosophy this is worth a watch (and not just because it's a CEO delivering a keynote lecture in shorts). The advert on the crazy ones is particularly pertinent. 
And finally, here's the cover of Time, simple but effective.
