by Aaron Britt Today at Dwell, as we fire up our MacBooks and plug in the odd iPhone, we remember Steve Jobs, the 56 year-old former CEO of Apple who died yesterday. Few companies have demonstrated such a relentless commitment to good design as Apple did under Jobs' guiding hand. I recently interviewed Dieter Rams, another company man (at Braun) who revolutionized the way companies tie themselves to industrial design (and a clear inspiration for Apple's products) and he named Apple as the company today with the strongest design ethos. Rams discussed how a company can't merely have a few design stars in the lab, it must receive constant support from the highest reaches of the corporate ladder. Jobs understood that, and as we come to terms with his passing yesterday, we'll see his legacy play out for generations. As such, we've chosen a trio of fitting tributes from around the web to one of our great industrialists—the man with the golden Apple.
