Steve Jobs 1955-2011Warren Buffett gave CNBC this statement after Apple’s announcement last night that Steve Jobs had died; it was released to the publ yesterday:

“He was one of the most remarkable business managers and innovators in American business history. I’m not much of a tech guy, but I’m enough of a consumer guy to know that there are very few people who made an impact on the consumer like he did. Today is a very sad day. Steve Jobs made a mark on this world no one will ever forget.”
