I thought I was looking at an old post about Steve's retirement from Apple again, but then realized something wasn't right when I saw "was" in the sentence. Looked up and found out Steve has passed away. WTF! So sad to hear about his death. RIP Steve, it's been an honor to have seen your genius in real life. You will be remembered as one of the greatest pioneers in the history of computers.
Steve Jobs, Wozniak, Bill Gates and Paul Allen are one of a kind--love them or hate them. They did a lot of the dirty work, long before VCs would show up with $500 million checks for an idea. [en.wikipedia.org...]
He never gloated on his success in interviews and didn't opt in for any sort of media circus. I liked that about him. I was sad when I heard he stepped down from his post as the CEO of Apple. A lot sadder today to hear his death.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
We are sorry to learn that the Co-founder of apple and many more innovations & creations Mr. Steve Jobs is no more alive. A few people like Steve will arrive in generations, who transformed our lives with visions, creativity, innovations & what not! We condole on his untimely demise. Apple would never fulfill its vacuum without Steve Jobs. Folks please write more what you know about Steve's life,creations etc.
And what a legacy it is. While I won't be so presumptuous as to say I'll miss you, since I didn't know you, I will say that I have no doubt that the world will miss out on your future creations that will now never be. If you're up there looking down on the tech world with a big ol' smile on your face, you earned it.
I'd love to see a link on the apple site asking for donations towards pancreatic cancer research. There is no better way to remember someone than to make a healthy contribution towards curing what shortened their life.
