I'd heard from Scott Armstrong that Steve Jobs had passed away.

I went to the Apple Store downtown simply to see.

Despite the KRON-4 news van outside, the bustle of commerce inside the store went on unabated.

I asked an Apple Genius behind the Genius Bar how she felt to be working in the store on this day.

"You mean in light of today's news?" she said.

I nodded.

Her mouth twisted to the side and her eyes focused farther away.

"Disappointed" she said, after a beat.

The store's din kept on. Its operation and the wares inside of it are a testament to one man's uncompromising aim.

"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become." - Steve Jobs, 1955-2011.
