Milestones: Goodbye to Steve Jobs and Arthur C. Nielsen

 He took a huge bite out of life and never stopped devouring knowledge. Steve Jobs will be remembered with the greatest inventors of all time. The MAC, The IPAD, the IPhone will always be associated with him

His impact on communications cannot be overstated.

May his family be comforted by his accomplishments. RIP

                  Mr. Ratings – Arthur C. Nielsen - RIP

Arthur C. Nielsen Jr., whose family company has been the final word on whether television shows are hot or not for more than a half-century, has died in the suburban Chicago community where he lived most of his life. He was 92. Nielsen, who died Monday in Winnetka, suffered from Parkinson's disease, his son said. It was the company founded by his father and then run by Nielsen that created the measurement system under which the entire multi-billion-dollar television industry is based and, from the late 1950s on, the name synonymous with U.S. television viewing habits. Children and parents alike wondered who in their neighborhoods was being contacted and asked about what they were watching or, later, whether Nielsen had attached electronic meters to their TV sets.
