Jobs... helped usher in the era of personal computers and then did nothing less than lead a cultural transformation in the way music, movies and mobile communications were experienced ... New York Times
- Gizmodo: "After his return to Apple, the company began shipping iconic product after iconic product. Products that defined a decade. The iMac, OS X, the iPod, iTunes... the iPhone, the iPad. All of these were deeply human products. They reflected his understanding of how technology was used not only in the workplace, but in the home."
- Bloomberg: Jobs "built the world's most valuable technology company by creating devices that changed how people use electronics."
- Walt Mossberg: "In my many conversations with him, the dominant tone he struck was optimism and certainty... he'd surprise me by forcefully disagreeing, explaining how the world looked from [the other] point of view."
- Brian Lam: "He replied, 'You're just doing your job.' And he said it in the kindest way possible. Which made me feel better and worse."
