Goodbye Steve Jobs

6 Oct

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life,”

– Steve Jobs

Apple Inc’s co-founder, former CEO and visionary extraordinaire Steve Jobs has passed away. His critical condition due to pancreatic cancer has had the world worrying and now it moans over his passing. News articles about his death have been pouring over the internet almost immediately after the official announcement. Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are flooding with the news about Jobs’ loss as well.

Jobs had made sure the world would never be the same again after his inventions such as the iphone and the ipad. The signature designs of the i-products and even the Apple logo itself have become a cultural icon exceeding the boundaries of mere fancy technology. Apple’s innovative momentum has lost its heart and soul when Jobs passed. With the iphone 5 soon to be launched, his absence seems to have made a huge gaping hole.

Apple – and the rest of the world- has lost a great inventor. Some even arguably place Jobs on the level of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison. Even though I personally do not own any Apple products, it saddens me to think that a person who sparked with so much ideas had died. At the same time I was amazed at how there were so many different angles of articles about his life. Some were focusing more on his last minutes before death and some more about his lifetime work at Apple. The abundance of material provided me helpful perspective about what kind of person Jobs had been.

He will surely be remembered as a genius and a innovator. Rest in Peace, Mr Jobs.
