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.
