A tribute to Steve Jobs.

If your like me, you may have woken up to the shocking news that Apple’s iconic founder Steve Jobs died yesterday. I first heard about it on Twitter, when I saw a tweet saying “R.I.P Steve Jobs”. I immediately thought it was a hoax and went over to CNN.com to confirm – it was true, Steve Jobs had passed on. Indeed, this is sad news for many of us who love technology and to go further are fans of everything that Steve Jobs accomplished in his lifetime at Apple and beyond.

Steve Jobs was without a doubt one of the Fathers of modern technology as we know it – a true Titan of all things digital. He defined and redefined everything from personal computers to mobile phones as well as movies and more recently tablets. He drove the vision of products and services that were quite simply “magical”  – we would never have appreciated the art of technology that he brought to life through his well-known and unrelenting drive for perfection in all he did. The world would not be what it is today we’re it not for Steve Jobs.

One of Steve Jobs’ famous “closing” statements when recruiting new team members to Apple was to ask them if they wanted to “put a dent on the universe” by working for him. Indeed, Steve Jobs made many many dents in the technology universe, as we know it. R.I.P Steve Jobs, you will be missed.

Now we will never know. As with Marcus Antonius when his friend Julius Caesar was assassinated — “Whence cometh such another?

    And one lesson I leant from his life is endurance. We need to be able to persevere and stop the quick fix to success ways we like nowadays: Example Learn C++ in 3 Days…is that even possible?
    We need to put in the years or months first before success becomes our ‘maiden’ names.

    RIP Steven.

  5. […] Mosesは彼の記事でこう述べる。「安らかに眠れ、死してなお惜しまれるスティーブ・ジョブズ」 ご存知の通り、スティーブ・ジョブズは間違いなく現代技術の父のうちの1人です。全デジタル製品の真の巨匠です。パソコンから携帯電話、そして映画、最近はタブレットにいたるまで全てのものを定義し、また再定義しました。まさに「魔法のような」製品やサービスやビジョンを推し進めました。それがなかったら、彼のテクノロジーの芸術をわざわざ高く評価することはなかったでしょう。やることなすこと全てに対して完璧主義を求めるというよく知られた彼の強い執念によってもたらされたものなのですから。もしスティーブ・ジョブズがいなかったら、今の世界はなかったでしょう。 […]
