Barack Obama, US president: “Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

Larry Page, CEO of Google: “He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.”

Bill Gates, Microsoft chairman: “The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder: “Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”

David Banham, Ratio founder:When Ratio present product design concepts to clients we often received the comment: Can you make it look more like an iPhone? …says it all really.”
