Tributes for Steve Jobs from the people he competed against and inspired:
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder: “People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he ever set for himself.”
Mark Zuckerberg: “Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”
Larry Page: “He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.”
