R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Seems only right to have a post on this. The man after all, with his company Apple, has undoubtedly changed the technological world that we live in. From the way we work, play and even interact with each other in this day and age; you’d be hard pressed not to say his presence in the industry not only changed this but also spurred on others to greatness.

The introduction of the iPod changed the way we listened to music. The iPhone is the benchmark phone for smart phones to rival and beat. And if it wasn’t for the iPad I highly doubt the burgeoning tablet market we see today would even exist.

His genius, creativity and innovative nature will surely created a void within Apple infrastructure . He knew how to design, create and market products by making you feel as if you needed them. The power of the brand.

Although it is a sad event and a definite loss, this mustn’t overlook some of the terrible issues that still lie in Apple, like there overworked Chinese factory workers and terrible environmental policies.

But still, this is about the man and how the world he changed will miss him in more ways than they actually probably realise.

R.I.P. STEVE JOBS.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
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.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs
