The news of Steve Jobs’s resignation from Apple, the innovative computer company he co-founded over 30 years ago, was announced yesterday to a saddened, but maybe not surprised, Silicon Valley; Jobs’s health has been in question for the past couple of years, as he fought cancer and recovered from a subsequent liver transplant.

Under the guidance of Jobs, Apple transformed the PC-dominated tech world through creativity, simplicity, and design. The iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, along with countless Mac products, are some of the most revolutionary computer creations of the past decade, fueled by Jobs’s ingenuity.

But now, as Jobs passes the CEO torch to Tim Cook, we’d like to celebrate the ways in which his pioneering products can play a part in your own Library experience:
