R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs At Stanford
"How To Live Before You Die" Watch »
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me ... Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful ... that's what matters to me.
Steve Jobs, Wall Street Journal

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech

Steve Jobs, co-founder, chairman and former chief executive of Apple Inc., has passed away at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jobs stepped down from his post at Apple in August and the impact he had on technology and how we use it can’t be overstated. The striking proof of that can be seen, for example, in the fact that I, like I’m sure many of you, found out about Jobs passing while using one of the gadgets he created, the iPhone 4, and I sit here now writing of his passing on Apple’s MacBook Pro. (Today, coincidentally enough, also saw the launch of the iPhone 4S.) Our thoughts are with his family and friends, especially, but the passing of this great inventor is certainly a loss for the world. [Apple]
