Tribute to Steve Jobs

by Kurt on October 6, 2011

It’s a sad day, today.

Icon Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple, master-innovator, tech genius, and… the one who gave us the 21st century, is no longer with us.

AV reported:

CUPERTINO, Calif. — Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO who invented and masterfully marketed ever-sleeker gadgets that transformed everyday technology, from the personal computer to the iPod and iPhone, has died. He was 56.

Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause. He had been battling pancreatic cancer.

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” the company said in a brief statement. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”

Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January — his third since his health problems began — before resigning as CEO six weeks ago. Jobs became Apple’s chairman and handed the CEO job over to his hand-picked successor, Tim Cook.

By the time he turned the reins of the company over to Cook, Jobs had become one of the business world’s greatest comeback kids.

The company he founded, was fired from and then returned to had gone from also-ran to technology industry leader. Under Jobs’ intensely detail-oriented leadership, Apple created several iconic products, including the iPod, iPhone and iPad, that have changed the face of consumer technology forever.

Sadly, he was wrong here:


And here’s the beautiful and most inspirational “think different” TV commercial, narrated by Steve Jobs, but never aired. Jobs sets the right tone: “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 and 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 crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do!”

“Find What You Love!” & “Stay Hungry! Stay Foolish!” (Steve’s 2011 commencement address at Stanford University, just a few weeks ago). His 2005 commencement is amazing as well:



Steve might very well “revolutionalize” heaven  😉






Let’s all eat an apple and take only one bite, in honor of Steve!

R.i.P. Steve
