Of all the people offering remembrances of Steve Jobs today, the guy who was there at the beginning was Steve Wozniak, better known as Woz, who offered his thoughts on his fellow Apple co-founder during an interview with CNN this morning.

This is one of the best parts, as he discusses Jobs’ influence on Apple and technology …

I’m really glad that Steve stayed there, and he stayed in the game that he was meant to be in. And he kept working to find the newer, better ways, and the next products, the next products, the next big achievement. It means so much. How do you judge yourself nowadays? You judge people usually by how they’re using their mobile products, and how they’re using their computers and what they’re getting done with it.  That’s a big part of our life, that’s how you see yourself. I think Apple products were so exceptional because that was how Steve saw himself. He was being judged by each one, and he was strong enough to tell people, ‘I’m not going to put out something that isn’t just unbelievably perfect, insanely great,’ at least in his own opinion.
