Compares moment to hearing of JFK assassination

Fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak learned about Steve Jobs' death through a reporter, an Associated Press interview reveals. "I was so stunned because I have very dramatic memories of where I was when the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan, when I heard that JFK had been shot, and this...I'll never get that memory out of my head, just where I was, getting a phone call, from a reporter, and they just said 'Have you heard the news?' And I instantly knew what that meant..and that was just a total shock," Wozniak recalls.

"Like, what do you say? It's like the world lost a John Lennon," he goes on. Wozniak describes Jobs as "the most outstanding business thinker," someone who would not just do things better but in a "totally different way." In the rest of the interview he goes on to remember Jobs' vision and leading industry reputation, as well good times the two had, ending the video in tears.
