Mr. Dashew is 95 years young, and he spoke to Monsters and Critics about the profound impact the late Steve Jobs had on the world:
"Being an inventor myself, I have a great understanding of the excitement and energy involved in creating a new product that will better the lives of others. I am 95 years old and I still wake up every day excited to embark on a new journey. Steve Jobs also embodied that spirit. His inventions changed the world and the way we communicate with one another. One day, my assistant asked me, of all the inventions I have seen built during my lifetime, which was the most powerful? I replied, "Without question, the computer."
