As you all may know, Steve Jobs, Board member of The Walt Disney Company and CEO of Apple has passed away yesterday, 10/05/11. (1995-2011). His early life was not as great as it is now. When he was born, he was adopted by a couple that had little money to help for his college fund. Steve Jobs was a man that did what he could to stay alive. He attended college, but unfortuanelty, got out of college after the first semester due to his parents not have enough money to help him pay for college. He would collect cans and turn them in each for five cents. Each Sunday, he would walk a long way to a temple to get a decent meal. Other than that meal, Jobs would just have to find something that will only save his stomach till Sunday. As he moved on with his life, he was asked to join Pixar. He joined and worked with them for a while. However, after Pixar, Steve Jobs was asked to join Apple. With his brilliant mind, he helped create apple to what it is today. He had dedication and passion towards his work. If Steve Jobs had never been asked to join Apple, then today, we wouldnt have anything that is similar to the ipod,ipad,imac, etc... He showed us that with hard work throughout our lives, we will conquer.
Anyways, now that Steve Jobs had passed away, will Apple decrease or increase and better technology? I believe that Apple will decrease or stay the same with their technology because the brilliant mastermind that put everything together has passed away. Without Steve Jobs, it will be much harder for the Apple Crew to think of new ways to invent new technoolgies. A while back ago, Steve Jobs was fired from Apple. The company thought that it was a good idea, however their products and salaray decreased. They realized that without Steve Jobs, Apple would be out of business. So they decided to get Steve Jobs back into Apple. Once Jobs got back in place everything inclined and Apple became a world wide popular trademark. As you all can see, Steve Jobs will never be forgotten. He was the man that had many unique designs to create amazing ipods, ipads,imac, etc.
We love what you have done for our world Steve Jobs and we will never forget about you and your creative ideas.
You will always be in our minds when we think of laptops,ipods,ipads.
Rest In Peace Steve Jobs
Thank you to all of you who have read this message and I hope that almost all, if not all of you feel the same way.
While the only thing I ever owned from Apple has been an ipod or two, I certainly admired this man and the drive and spirit he possessed for so long. IIRC he was very sick even two years ago, but he never gave up on work and always had Apple in his first priorities. I guess he knew the inevitable was coming and wanted to spend every last moment doing what he loved. I see him as one of the last great inspirations, and I think a lot will go with him. Its a shame his kind of intuition is lacking in modern commerce and that instead of hard work, determination and ethics, buisness status quo more and more relies on price gouging, bailouts, and outsourcing.
RIP Mr. Jobs, and let us hope your death is not capitalized upon.
Also, I would like to add that everyone thought that he was going to die last week. However, with his strong heart and ability, he fought his way from last week till this week. He surely is a person who can prove others wrong!
Can't say I ever owned anything he was responsible for, but he changed how we view and use technology at least a few times during his career. I did hear a story about a fairly junior guy being amazed to to be in a meeting with him and he was then further amazed to spend a lot of time with him deciding what shade of blue something should be. Perhaps that attention to detail is one of the reasons he was so successful.
You can do something to help people with cancer, give blood. A lot of people need a steady supply just to stay alive and you don't need all of yours. Giving blood also usually comes with free tea and biscuits, what could be more British? It really does save lives.
