Wading through the river of tweets in the wake of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs’s death. It has become the trending topic of all the trending topics on Twitter.

He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation (@SteveCase). Not many people have a vision, and then execute it so thoroughly. A role model for control freaks everywhere (@anamariecox). For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor (@billgates). Jobs’s legacy winks light from every shiny wonder he put in our eager hands (@carr2n).

Steve Jobs was a genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein. His ideas will shape the world for generations (@mikebloomberg). Writing our obituary for Steve (which I had not done before, because it seemed ghoulish). My fingers are still unwilling to write it (@jason_pontin).”There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented” [President Barack Obama eulogized]  (@pfeiffer44).

I’ve never been this sad about the passing of someone I didn’t know (@glennf). I feel bad I never wrote him a letter, even if he never saw it, telling him how immeasurably my life was changed by his genius (@rosannecash). I was never an Apple fanboy but I will always be a Steve Jobs fanboy (@weldpond). Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesn’t just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement (@candylion5).

Apple campus flags at half-staff (@mental_floss). It’s really kind of touching to see virtually every tweet and post be about Steve Jobs. True influence isn’t measured in Twitter followers (@augieray). Apple changed my life. Over and over again (@poetabook). Honor Steve Jobs by building things which matter & lead from your heart (@hunterwalk). The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do (@jackiyo).

Fuck cancer. Seriously (@kul).

And then there are the caricatures of Steve Jobs. Here are some of them that may have impressed Jobs himself with their innovation and subtle humor.

Its his bday today! YaYaay!!..my lil prince turns 3 today!!…my LOUD, handsome, naughty, cute, mischievous YET simply adorable nephew Ammar completes 3 awesome years today!! 🙂

Ammar’s caption: Dont go by my looks. I’m here to bug you!

I met him the first time when he came to Dubai last year & I had the best 3 months with him! My sister was teaching him how to address everyone in the family and instead of calling me Masi (Aunt) he preferred Nishi (since everyone calls me Nishu or Nish at home he thought of being a little different)! He still doesn’t call me Masi and I love the way he says Nishi. He was shy at first but after the first few days, he was full-on his naughty self! I would come back from work to see my room been hit by an earthquake! Seriously. The three months I had almost forgotten the color of my room carpet. We could never see it! He particularly loved my dressing table items. He had this fascination for my nail polishes, creams, perfumes and hair accessories. I feared he would become a Barbie. Thank god for his car craze now!

I still remember when I would come back home in the afternoon after work tired and wanting to sleep for an hour before going to mosque, he would insist I play with him. He would just pretend to sleep next to my sister and the minute I would enter the room he would get up and drag me outside the room to play. I would scream at him and pretend to be angry but who listens at that age of two! He hated sleep. He still does! He wouldn’t sleep till 2am at night everyday! He would walk around the room hoping someone would get up to entertain him & vice versa. The minute we would switch off the lights, he would shriek. Yea, those were 3 sleepless months for me! sigh.. But then somehow in the end, he always made it worth.

I couldn’t wait to get back home from work to see him up to some new mischief. Wearing my tops,my hair bands in his hands and legs, emptying my creams on the carpet, throwing his cars in all the difficult corners of the house, hiding the TV remotes (I think we still haven’t found one remote), breaking my favorite watch, etc; he was a 24/7 entertainer! He still is. He loved staying outside the house. He would throw a tantrum if he didn’t go out every single day!

No doubt he is a big time drama-king. He is showered with love right, left and center. He is showered with gifts by his grandparents all year round (first grandchild after all!). Touchwood! Am actually jealous of my sister for having him. But can’t complain much since he is going to be my son-in-law too! 🙂

To these memories and many more cherished ones…Ammar, may you LIVE all the days of your life! When you were born, you were so surprised you didn’t speak for a year and half. Now you never fail to surprise us!
