Steve Jobs



Dear Kids,


A man who changed the world died today. He was part Thomas Edison, part Walt Disney. But ultimately, he was the one and only Steve Jobs. You must read more about these people one day. There's a lot to be learned from their life stories. Inspiration is a powerful thing.

To rip-off today's Facebook status, in memory of the man, I say again… 

Thank you for for making computers cool; for giving us fonts; for my best running buddy, the iPod; for Pixar; for letting my kids see the world on a Mac screen; for making us learn and imagine things on the iPad and other such awesomeness I fail to mention in this rambling. 

Most of all, thank you for thinking this way… 

It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities that yields the results that makes our hearts sing.” -Steve Jobs, 2011 iPad 2 launch

When your attention spans can handle this, please watch for more inspiration...

 


"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. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Steve Jobs, 2005 Stanford University Commencement Speech

Rest In Peace, Mr. Jobs.

I'm so affected by his passing, even if it comes as no surprise. Still processing. I have lots to thank him for.

While sitting on the plane yesterday waiting to take off: MacDaddy on a Mac catching up on work, 82-year old GrandDadDoc checking out the NY Times, Mak on an Iphone playing FIFA and Tato on an Ipad making cartoons. All possible because of the magical mind of Steve Jobs.

He's revolutionized this world. What an amazing, incredible man!

RIP Mr. Jobs. You left your mark on our desks, on our ears and in our hands...

Affected, I know. Since he had resigned from Apple I was reading more about his life and found him so interesting. But, I was moved by his death in a bigger way than I had expected. Imagine life without his inventions. And oh, his own personal story! Bio coming out soon.
