For those of you late to the knowledge like I was, an even bigger man (IMO) than Steve Jobs has passed away: Dennis Ritchie, developed C and co-developed UNIX.

RIP.

Its a shame that his death hasn’t had the same echo of Steve Job’s passing out

I would say: a TRUE big man, rather than Steve Jobs, who was just a good CEO and marketeer.
