Steve Jobs was a close friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy extends far beyond the products he has created, or the company he built. He has inspired millions of people, changed lives and defined a culture. Steve was an original with an incredibly creative and imaginative mind, something that has become an era. Despite everything he has created, so it feels as if he only just begun. With his death the world has lost a unique man, Disney has lost a member of our family and I have lost a good friend
