Ten best Steve Jobs tributes (1955 - 2011)
10. Bloomberg Businessweek
On Friday, Bloomberg Businessweek revealed its tribute to Steve Jobs. With a photo essay, an incredibly thorough biography and first-person input from Eric Schmidt, John Sculley and Steve Jurvetson, it's impressive in scope and quality.
But it's just one of many innovative tributes inspired by the death of Steve Jobs, who changed so much about the way we live. Here are the rest of the best:
The ecard site is offering free ecards memorializing Steve Jobs with a lot of sass. There's the one above and other gems like "Sorry no one cares that the creator of your electronic device is still alive" and "Let's mourn the passing of a man who could never be replaced by a better model."

Stephen Colbert's tribute to all the Apple shit he owns is a consumerist, greedy and narcissistic façade wrapped around a warm, fuzzy core of "I think you and your work are really swell." A couple of laughs, then tears: Thanks for the emotional rollercoaster.
7. Portrait of Steve Jobs made from a MacBook
This image was made out of a disassembled MacBook Pro by Mint Digital's research team, Foundry. "I always thought Mac's were a bit overpriced for what they were. Not anymore," pronounces the project's blog.

People around the globe took to their nearest Apple stores to show their appreciation of jobs. In Tokyo and Hong Kong, fans turned on their iPhones, iPods and iPads, and used a candle app to create this high-tech memorial. And others left apples, both the edible and inedible kind.

San Francisco's 997 NOW has been playing this remix of Nicki Minaj's "Fly" with a chorus from Rihanna (think they were on Jobs's iPod?) with Steve Jobs's voice woven in. Listen to it at their website. It's odd but definitely creative.
