                          HONORING STEVE JOBS


                          HON. ROBERT E. LATTA

                                of ohio

  Mr. LATTA. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the life or 
``dots'' as Steve Jobs, co-founder, chairman, and chief executive 
officer of Apple, would say. Jobs was a visionary and creative genius, 
who believed that everything in life is interconnected, bringing us 
products that bring our whole worlds into our pockets.
  Jobs' dedication and tireless devotion to creating the perfect user 
experience spurred and redefined the digital age, leading to a cultural 
transformation in the way the world communicates. This is ever so true 
here in our Congressional hallways, where Apple has provided most 
Members a communications facelift. Jobs' leadership at Apple has 
changed the way we do business here in Washington, but also in the 
news, music and telecommunications industries.
  Jobs' childhood dream of putting ``a ding in the universe'' has 
become true and for this, Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me 
in remembering the ``dots'' of Steve Jobs' legacy.
