O Music Awards Nominees Remember Steve Jobs

Posted October 6

Last night, digital music lost one of its true founding fathers to cancer: Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple and the innovator behind such creations as the iPod, iTunes and the iPhone — all of which changed the way music is created and consumed forever.

In remembrance of Jobs, we took to Twitter to see what our O Music Awards nominees were saying about one of the original digital geniuses. As you can see, many profess to owe their careers to Jobs, which doesn’t seem to be an overstatement at all.
