On October 5th, 2011, former Apple CEO and Chairman Steve Jobs passed away at the age of 56. This was such a sad and shocking day for the World, for Jobs had inspired millions around the World with his innovative and slick products. Steve was a one-of-a-kind, he will not be replaced within this century. Steve had been battling pancreatic cancer since 2004. It’s disappeared and reappeared throughout the years. Unfortunately it got the better of him on October 5th, as he died surrounded by his family and friends. The Apple Board of Directors, yesterday, released a statement saying:
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. 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. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
Over the years Steve as revolutionized the technology industry. He has brought so many new kinds of technologies to this planet, that otherwise might not even be here today. Look around your room… I bet you there’s at least one Apple product near you. It’s quite amazing and extraordinary how a man like Jobs has affected our living space, our favorite music, our favorite movies, and our favorite devices. Where would we be without this important man? Nobody knows; and thank god that this man founded Apple. I remember one of the first videos that I watched, regarding Steve Jobs, on YouTube, was his Stanford University Commencement Speech which took place in 2005. Here’s one of the most powerful quote’s that you will ever read:
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 others’ 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
