Yesterday we all were saddened to hear that former Apple CEO and technology visionary Steve Jobs passed away. Through the moving words from his family it was clear that Steve's relationship with his wife, Laurene Powell Jobs, and their three children was filled with love. Steve and Laurene, a Stanford business school grad who works with many nonprofits, were married in 1991 by a Buddhist monk. The statement released yesterday by Apple said, "His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family." Steve often mentioned his love for his wife, Laurene, so we look back at the pair and some of his best quotes on love and life, many coming from his now celebrated 2005 Stanford commencement speech.
Yes, after the new MacBook Pros, new MacBook Airs, and new MacBooks were announced at the Apple Event in Cupertino yesterday, who else, but none other than Laurene Powell Jobs, decided to sit down on a bench right next to me. As she chatted away on her sleek white iPhone, I instantly knew it was her — especially after our "Geek Love: Tech Giants and Their Ladies" story which featured her and her hubby looking oh-so-adorable. Within a few minutes, Steve decided to join his blond beauty for some one-on-one time, which I'm guessing turned into a lunch date or a ride home together. All together now, ahhhh!
