From friends and fans, Steve Jobs tributes pour in

Robert McMillan | Oct. 6, 2011
As news of the death of Steve Jobs spread around the Internet, the tributes came pouring in Wednesday, crediting Apple's co-founder and chairman with -- more than once -- changing computing as we know it.

The politically connected Jobs was also remembered by his friend, California Governor Jerry Brown, who said, "Steve Jobs was a great California innovator who demonstrated what a totally independent and creative mind can accomplish. Few people have made such a powerful and elegant imprint on our lives."

Former Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy also praised Jobs.

"I think he's the greatest entrepreneur we've ever known or seen," McNealy said during an event on Wednesday evening. "Look at what he did with Apple, what he did with Pixar."
