On behalf of everyone at Skyfire, and others in Silicon Valley, our thoughts go out to Steve Jobs' and his family as we learn of his death.
We salute Jobs and all that he has done to remake our industry and revolutionize the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
In a smaller sense, our own consumer success would not have been possible without great innovations that Jobs led like the iPhone, iPad, the App Store, iTunes for easy payments and html5 browsing. Jobs' famous opposition to Adobe Flash on the iPhone opened up a market need that we addressed: Translating Flash Video into Apple-friendly formats.
But in a much larger sense, we all in mobile have lived in a world changed forever by Jobs from the invention of the iPhone in 2007, which changed people's minds about what a "smartphone" could be.
Jobs pioneered the belief, which is now a commonplace assumption, that everyone should have the full Internet and powerful personal computing, in your pocket, with you, 24 hours a day.
