    Cnet writes that the 16th Annual Webby Awards paid a moving tribute to the late Steve Jobs with a video presentation featuring the likes of President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, George Lucas, and Bono from U2. The video was introduced by the actors John Hodgman and Justin Long, who played the “PC†and “Mac†in Apple’s famous series of ads. Actor Richard Dreyfuss, who had previously been the narrator for Apple’s “Think Different†ad, also gave his own individual tribute to Jobs before the video, saying that Jobs was “the exception that proves the rule.†Others featured in the video include Al Gore, Buzz Aldrin, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Fallon, Arianna Huffington and Vint Cerf. When you look at this, it makes you sad all over again. As President Obama says in his tribute, “The truth is when we are talking about Steve Jobs, we only need one word: amazing.â€
