I am writing this post to show my admiration and respect to one of the worlds most amazing humans to have ever lived.
His life long efforts and achievements are far reaching and profoundly impressive, he has proved to the world one man can make a difference.
Steve passed away peacefully surrounded by family on 5th October 2011
His has left an imprint on mankind that will never be forgotten and will always be remembered until the end of time.
He was an inspiration to millions
He stuck to his word and never faltered when challenged
"That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains." Steve Jobs Interview with Business Week, 1998
He was a true visionary
"The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it to a nationwide communications network. We're just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people - as remarkable as the telephone."
Steve Jobs Interview with Playboy magazine, 1985 - the man was a true visionary
Steve Jobs was a one off; a man who had total belief in his own abilities and a shortage of patience for anyone who failed to agree with him.
His great gifts were an ability to second guess the market and an eye for well designed and innovative products that everyone would buy.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them," he once said. "By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
Where it all began
"Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
"By building one of the planet's most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity....
"By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun.
"The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
The US President Barrack Obama
“Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives, The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.”
Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder
"He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it."
Larry Page, chief executive, Google
Steve Jobs, he is apple, a visionary who saw the power of digital technology to change the way we live
"3 Apples changed the World, 1st one seduced Eve, 2nd fell on Newton and the 3rd was offered to the World half bitten by Steve Jobs."
A life in computers
Although I never knew you I feel privileged to have shared this short period in time with you Steve
May you Rest In Peace
