Steve Jobs last gift to the Internet is pageviews, and an outpouring of creative tributes riffing on the Apple visionary (and logo).
The folks at Next Media Animation are no exception. The Taiwanese group behind all those wacky computer-animated takes on current events put together a poignant tribute to Jobs, reeled alongside a sincere statement that read, in part: "Steve Jobs made the world fall in love with and embrace technology. Much of what Next Media Animation does — indeed what any media company does — would be impossible were it not for Steve Jobs…. Apple and Steve Jobs have featured prominently in our animations. This was not due to enmity or ill will. It was because we admired him."
Indeed, NMA was not always so kind to Jobs, often depicting him as Darth Vader. A look back at some of those animations below.
