Who was given up for adoption but whose new parents raised him so well that he could intern for Hewlett-Packard as a high schooler.
Who dropped out of college but was worth 100 million by age 25.
Who lived in a garage designing a computer that would someday be useful in every room of the house.
Who made geekiness cool. Who almost salvaged the mock turtleneck look.
Who upended the personal tech industry. And the music industry. And the movie industry. And the cell phone industry.
Whose ideas, to the end, multiplied faster than the cancer inside him.
